Dremel Shaft Lock stripped?


Hey guys, I was just wondering, my Dremel 3000's shaft lock button seems to have been stripped, with a bit stuck in the process. I just got the Flex shaft attachment for Christmas, and while I can use my brother's dremel, I would like to get this one working.

Has this happened to anyone? If so, how did you resolve it?

I have the same one with the detail attachment hasn't happened to me yet. But I imagine it can be fixed.

I have the same problem with my Dremel. What I usually end up doing is using a pair of vice grips to hold down the shaft lock and it holds enough for me to remove my bits then when I change bits I only tighten finger tight.
Thanks for the suggestion! IT WORKED! Now I can get back to work on my Spartan 4. Thanks again!
