Foredom flexible shaft power tools are used for many different applications such as hand grinding, deburring, carving, sanding, cleaning, buffing and polishing on all types of material–wood, metal, plastic, glass and stone. Variable Speed– foot operated or table top dial controls allow users to find just the right speed for the accessory, material, and application up to 18,000 rpm. Handpieces are slim, light weight and smooth running–the vibration, noise, and heat associated with hand held electric or air motors in electric or air tools are eliminated by having the flex shaft motor positioned above and out of the way of the workpiece. The broad and interchangeable selection of Foredom handpieces also adds tremendous versatility to the product line. Handpieces are available with either collets or chucks for holding rotary accessories and drills with shanks from 1/16″ to 1/4″ in diameter. Reliable and Economical–flex shaft machines have permanently lubricated, ball bearing, fan cooled, universal motors that are easy to maintain and more economical to operate than air tools. Comprehensive Selection of Rotary Accessories–an enormous selection of quality made rotary accessories is available for accomplishing almost any task on virtually any material.
