Economy Flex Shaft

Economy Flex Shaft

Hand Grinder

There are a number of flexible shaft hand grinders manufactured in China of varying quality. We found one whose design conception and craftsmanship are well above average for motors from that region. Though we are not recommending this motor for all-day use, we tested it under this condition, and it's performance far exceeded our expectations.

The motor is rated nominally at 1/4 HP, though we estimate actual horsepower to be 1/8 HP. The sheath that houses the flexible shaft is spring reinforced at both ends for enhanced durabilty. The Jacobs-style chuck will hold grinder and rotary tools with shanks up to 5/32" diameter. Maximum speed is 22,000 rpm. Furnished with the following:

  • No. 30 style handpiece (1" diameter)
  • Chuck key
  • Foot pedal speed control
  • Shaft with reinforced sheath
  • Fitted carrying case
  • 110V, 60Hz, 1/8HP (approx.) motor

We're so confident that you'll be pleased with this motor that if for any reason you don't like it, you can return it within 90 days of the date of shipment, no questions asked.
