The kit contains these main components:
All new SR Motor – Foredom’s new 1/6 hp, ball bearing, hang-up style motor with speed up to 18,000 rpm. This motor offers substantially more power than any of Foredom’s other universal motors – 66% more than Series CC and 33% more than Series S and old SR motors. The All new SR operates in forward and reverse rotation for added versatility.
FCT Control – this foot operated speed control has solid state electronics and comes in a heavy duty plastic housing with an extra wide design.
No. 44T Handpiece. This collet style handpiece is popular among woodcarvers since it accomodates larger accessories with shank diameters up to 1/4″. It comes with 3/32″, 1/8″ and 1/4″ collets. The tapered design allows for close and safe work. The No. 44T is a member of the Foredom system of interchangeable handpieces.
