The Foredom K.1070 Micro-Motor kit is great for high speed applications up to 38,000RPM including light deburring of cast pieces, bright cutting in jewelry making and fine detailing in wood.
Compared to flex shaft systems, micro-motors have less torque, however, their higher speed results in a comparable rate of material removal with a lighter touch. The other difference from the traditional flex shaft system also comes from the simple cord connection with the control box which reduces the “drag” and general restriction in movement from when you have a shaft and sheath giving you greater freedom of movement.
Also included in this kit are:
- Control box
- Handpiece with 3/32″ (2.35mm) collet
- Cradle for handpiece
- Variable speed foot control
- Spare motor brushes, fuse, and collet changing wrenches
