This permanent magnet motor is the ideal choice for jobs where you need more power and more control, like stone setting, wax modelling, and pearl drilling.
Why is the label red rather than blue - is this a fake?!
No, the label is red to show it is a UK 230 voltage motor, rather than a US voltage.
Any Foredom hanging motor you buy in Europe SHOULD have a red label. If it is blue it is designed for 110V!

They also are well matched with the H.15 and H.15D Hammer Handpieces. It comes equipped with a motor bale for hanging, and our standard 39" long key tip inner shaft and special/more flexible neoprene outer protective sheath for connecting to any of Foredom's quick disconnect handpieces. This motor and speed combination is CE compliant and meets all electrical and safety requirements. 230 V version with a three pin fused UK plug.
Speed Control Description:
CE compliant speed control features solid state circuitry in a heavy duty plastic housing with an extra wide footprint, low profile, and non-skid pads on the bottom. It provides smooth control throughout the entire speed range. Important: Foredom's permanent magnet motors require the use of a TXR-1, SXR-1, or EMX-1 speed control. Damage will result if the motor is connected to any other speed control.
Two year limited warranty on motor and foot speed control.
PLEASE NOTE - this motor does not come with a handpiece. The Foredom flex shaft system is designed to allow interchangeability of most handpieces.
