It comes equipped with our standard 39″ long key tip inner shaft and outer sheath for connecting to any of Foredom’s 19 interchangeable, quick disconnect handpieces.
C.FCT-1 Speed Control Description:
The reliable C.FCT-1 is Foredom’s most popular speed control. It features solid state circuitry in a heavy duty plastic housing with an extra wide footprint, low profile, and non-skid pads on the bottom. It provides smooth control throughout the entire speed range. CSA listed. 7″ long, 4-1⁄2″ wide, 2-3⁄8″ high, ship wt– 2 lbs./1 kg.
The 1/6 hp, ball bearing Series SR has 33% more power than our older 1/8 hp motors, and 66% more than our original 1/10 hp models. The added power helps to reduce stalling or slowing down under normal workloads.
Advantages of Running in Reverse:
Left handed users have more control of the cutting tool
Reverse helps to keep dust and other debris flying away from right handed users
Alternating motor direction helps to extend the life of certain abrasives
Reverse helps with accomplishing symmetrical grinding and carving techniques
Reverse makes it easier to back out stuck drill bits
Alternating motor direction makes it easier and faster to polish metals
M.SRB motors are available in both 115 Volt and 230 Volt.
