1. M.SR Motor: Foredom’s most popular and best motor for general use. The 1/6 hp, ball bearing, hang-up style M.SR runs in forward and reverse at speeds up to 18,000 RPM. It offers substantially more power than any of our older universal motors – 66% more than Series CC and 33% more than Series S and old SR motors. It comes equipped with a motor bale for hanging and a Non-Conductive inner shaft and outer sheath for connecting to any of Foredoms quick disconnect handpieces.The H.44T and H.25 handpieces, shown below under Related Products, are the most popular for equine applications.
Replacement shafts require a VERY light coating of Foredom grease before use. Be sure to unplug your motor before doing any maintenance and never operate your Foredom without the outer sheath attached.We suggest that you view our maintenance videos before installing this item.
C.SCT Speed Control: solid state electronics and smooth control in a heavy cast iron housing. The added weight eliminates any
unexpected movement of the control along the floor. The bottom surface of the speed control is covered with non-skid material. CSA listed.
