LX Series Foredom Flex Shaft

LX Series Foredom Flex Shaft

The LX Series Foredom Flex Shaft is a high torque, low speed motor (maximum speed 5000 RPM) engineered specifically for low speed/high torque applications such as stone setting, jewelry wax grinding and carving, and pearl drilling. It's also the ideal flexshaft motor to use with hammer handpieces. This permanent magnet, ball bearing motor is more powerful than the Foredom "L" series motor it replaces. Furnished with Foredom's No. 30 Handpiece and TXR foot control. Also available with the foot control, but without a handpiece. 115 volts.
