Foredom Square Drive, Extra (!) Heavy Duty Shaft & Sheath Assembly Replacement
Complete Square Drive Assembly flexshaft. If you're doing lots of very heavy-duty carving, or other tough jobs with very challenging materials, you might want to replace your flexshaft on your SR, TX, or LX motor with a square drive version.
Assembled set of:
- S-10823 Square Drive inner shaft (63-3/4″ long)
- S-10801TX Heavy Duty outer sheath (63″ long)
- SS10819 Silencer Spring.
Assembly comes pre-lubricated from factory.
The square drive shafts can only be used with Foredom’s square drive handpieces.
Do I need a Square Drive flexshaft? This is what Foredom has to say about it:
For years we called our square drive shafting equipped motors ‘Heavy Duty’. This caused a problem, because all of Foredom’s flex shaft machines can be described that way – they work hard and often last for many decades. All Foredom motors can be outfitted with square drive shafting (in place of standard key tip) and add the letter ‘H’ to the part number.
Most people do NOT need a square drive model.
A common mistake made by customers who are upgrading from hand-held grinders to a Foredom is to select a ‘square drive’ rather than standard model. Our standard models are a major step up from Dremel® and other consumer driven brands. Square Drive Heavy Duty versions of Foredom motors (M.SRH, M.TXH, etc.) are exactly the same motors as the M.SR or M.TX, but come equipped with square drive inner shafts and longer outer sheaths in place of the standard key tip versions. The square drive ‘heavy duty’ shafting is stiffer and connects only with our 5 square drive style handpieces. Select a square drive model ONLY if you expect to work on over-sized projects involving the hardest to work with and most challenging materials.
Please note: Unplug your motor before doing any maintenance and never operate your Foredom without the outer sheath attached.
This shaft and sheath combination can be installed on all Foredom motors we stock (apart from the Micro Motor).
