Answer: 
I've never seen a Dremel 380 in person. But I looked at the schematics online and from the looks of it, I would bet that the flex-shaft will indeed fit. But to make sure, I think I would contact Dremel directly (via email or phone call) and ask them. They will be able to answer with a certainty and that's always best before buying. That's my best advice.

Answer: 
I buy the flex-shaft for all of my Dremel tools for a couple of reasons.
1. It gets the motor away from the work. This is important to me because we grind dogs' toenails and that whining motor right next to the dog makes the dog uncomfortable and want to pull away. Getting the motor further away from the dog makes it much easier to get the dog's acceptance.

I buy the flex-shaft for all of my Dremel tools for a couple of reasons.
1. It gets the motor away from the work. This is important to me because we grind dogs' toenails and that whining motor right next to the dog makes the dog uncomfortable and want to pull away. Getting the motor further away from the dog makes it much easier to get the dog's acceptance.
2. It allows for much more maneuverability. We can move the small flex-shaft around and get into tight places and difficult angles using the flex-shaft where holding the whole Dremel tool up to the location would be far more difficult.
I would say, once you use a flex-shaft, you won't go back -- AND -- you won't be sorry you bought it. They're really nice to use.
I have never noticed any loss of RPM or power when using the flex-shaft. It's only 3 feet long. I suppose you would lose power if it were significantly longer than that. But it's driven by a square shaft, much like the analog speedometer cables of old. Same idea.

Answer: 
This is the one! Look no further! The flex-shaft is precisely the right accessory for your Dremel 4000! Fits right on your Dremel. You need the little wrench to secure the drive shaft in the flex-shaft to the Dremel tool. Then you attach all of your accessories to the flex-shaft the same way you did to the tool. It's that simple. You're going to love it! I promise you!

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great addition to my Dremel. First thing I used this on was an acrylic sheet to cut to a special project that I am working on. With this extension it makes it so much easier to handle. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great attachment This makes getting into the tight spots on my motorcycle to polish the chrome very easy. Highly recommended April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Own a Dremel - Buy this attachment This attachment permits using the Dremel bits with the dexterity of a pencil or paint brush. This also allows use in much tighter locations the Dremel has difficulty fitting. Storage is easy and simple in the hard case the Dremel comes with. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it. Great for controlled detail work. I used it to complete a handle on a double bit Tomahawk and will be using it for many other things. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great attachment I do small woodworking projects and use my Dremel tool a lot. I've been thinking about buying this attachment for a long time and finally did. I have to say I'm very happy with it and wonder why I waited so long. It's light weight and small size are perfect for me. It is so easy to use on my small projects and my hand no longer tires from the weight and bulk of the Dremel tool alone. It seems powerful enough to handle my extensive carving and sanding sessions. I'm an artist and hobby woodworker. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for tight spots or delicate work Bought this to cut off a bolt located in a very tight spot. Worked like a charm, again. This is my second flex-shaft. This one does not have same feel as my first (bought more than 10years ago). Plastic handle, thin(er) plastic on connecting collar-nut. First had a handpiece made of metal, thus one is plastic. First felt likje out had bearings, this on he feels like it has bushings. Cable itself is the same as far as I can tell. Not the same quality as what was once found in dentist office, but also much cheaper. Don't bend cable too much, or it will wear very quickly. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great I love my dremels I am a silversmith and it works great for me I use it everyday and work it hard I also do lapidary work and with a few of the attachments I make beautiful turquoise jewelry. June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes doing prodjects much easier. This product makes doing everything much quicker, easier and accurate because it is lighter. Cutting plexi-glass is a snap. June 6, 2016
