Foredom's most popular SR motor - now with a Woodcarving Kit!
Everything you need to get started in woodwork - carving, shaping, sanding, de-burring and engraving.
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!
