Foredom is the world leading manufacturer of flexshafts. This SR pendant hanging motor with a flexshaft is the most popular flex shaft of all. It's the ideal choice for grinding, deburring, carving, sanding, cleaning, buffing, and polishing on virtually every type of material.
This is Foredom's most popular flex shaft model, teamed up with a foot operated speed control. 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.
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!
Foredom's 1/6 HP, universal, flexible shaft machine runs in forward and reverse rotation at speeds up to 18,000 RPM. The M.SR combines the most important features you would expect from a Foredom - power, reversibility, reliability, and versatility - all in one motor. It comes equipped with a motor bale for hanging, and a 39" long key tip shafting for connecting to any of Foredom's quick disconnect handpieces.
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.
Additional Motor Details:
The 1/6 HP, ball bearing series SR has 33% more power than the older 1/8 hp motors, and 66% more than the original 1/10 hp models. The added power helps to reduce stalling or slowing down under normal workloads.
Advantages of Running in Reverse:
Left handed users have more control of the cutting tool
Reverse helps to keep dust and other debris flying away from right handed users
Alternating motor direction helps to extend the life of certain abrasives
Reverse helps with accomplishing symmetrical grinding and carving techniques
Reverse makes it easier to back out stuck drill bits
Alternating motor direction makes it easier and faster to polish metals
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.
