Supplying everything you need for power carving, this kit contains a flex shaft, motor and handpiece, as well as an assortment of burrs, drums, discs and other accessories. It is a good general-purpose rotary carving set for shaping wood, and for high-speed polishing, drilling, grinding, sanding and other medium-duty applications with various materials.
The braided core of the flex shaft can rotate in either direction, and is enclosed in a tough but pliable neoprene sheath impervious to grease or oil. The ball-bearing motor is 1/6 hp, 1.7 amp, maximum 18,000 rpm. A foot pedal, made from rugged plastic with a non-skid base, lets you control speed without interrupting work.
The heavy-duty collet handpiece (model 44T) has sealed ball-bearings for quiet, smooth operation, and is tapered for comfort and grooved for grip.
The kit comes with 3/32", 1/8" and 1/4" collets, a pin and wrench for changing collets, and a 1 fl oz tube of flex shaft lubricant. It also includes a 26-piece assortment of burrs, mandrels, radial bristle discs, sanding discs, drums and sleeves, plus a multi-tier lazy Susan burr stand, and an instructional DVD.
Sold separately, a 42" height-adjustable motor hanger lets you suspend the motor out of the way, allowing the flex shaft full freedom of movement.
