Foredom Flexible Shaft Tools


Foredom rotary tools & flexible shaft machines are built to industrial standards. Over time, the name Foredom means quality, reliability, and some people say Foredom – when they are talking about any Flexible Shaft Machine. Flex shafts are used for many jobs including grinding, deburring, carving, engraving, stone setting, and polishing on virtually any material. A complete Foredom flexible shaft machine has a motor that causes a flexible shaft to rotate a handpiece at a high speed – usually hand held and a speed control that is also controlled by the user.

Micromotors and bench lathes are other rotary tools that Foredom makes. Micromotors have ‘micro-sized’ power tool motors inside of a handpiece and simple cord connections to a control box that permit high speed operation without the drag of a flexible shaft. We even have a portable model, powered by a lithium ion battery, that can be used on-the-go for hours. Foredom bench lathes are powerful, compact and useful for many grinding, buffing and polishing applications.
