Foredom Power Carving Tools

Foredom Power Tools are among the best tools on the market today for carving, jewelry work and much more. These are NOT light duty hobby tools, they are industrial tools designed for industrial applications and are manufactured for long life and heavy duty use. These are tools that are designed for people who use them hard and expect them to last a lifetime! 

*A personal note - I've had a Foredom tool for over 20 years, and in that time no repairs have been needed other than normal maintenance (lubrication of the shaft) and replacement of a broken cable in the flex shaft (due to my own misuse!)  In the same 20 year span, I've probably used and discarded 5 or 6 Dremel tools due to bad switches or bearings.  In my experience, Dremel tools just don't last as long and aren't easily repaired  Foredom tools are more expensive than a Dremel, but will not need to be replaced a few years down the road.  I know many people are still using old models that work well after many years of use.

All the new 1/6HP Foredom tools come with a TWO year manufacturer's warranty and are discounted from the manufacturers suggested retail price. (Accessories such as burs carry a 90 day warranty.)    The items offered below are some that are particularly good for gourd carvers and wood carvers.  Many more Foredom models are available upon request, please contact me for a price quote.

Product Specs for the K.103018 model (1/8" collet version)
• The built-in, rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers between 3 and 5 hours of power depending on the work you're doing. After an initial 3-hour charge, the battery fully recharges in about 2 hours, getting you back to work fast. The charging unit offers dual-voltage capability and doubles as an AC adapter—so you can keep on working when you need to.
• A digital LED display in the top edge of the control unit for easy adjustment of the handpiece speed as you work; speed adjusts from 0 to 30,000rpm using the rotary dial on the face of the control.
• The collet-style handpiece features an efficient twist-release action that speeds the changing of tools; accommodates 1/8" shank burs.  Can be used with collet adapters, that step down the collet sizes to either 3/32" or 1/16".
• Suitable for carving, shaping, smoothing, polishing, engraving and more on gourds, metal, stone, glass, and a variety of other materials.
• Brush-type motor is fan cooled, runs cool and vibration-free even in continuous use. It has permanently lubricated, shielded ball bearings that require no additional lubrication and includes a spare pair of motor brushes.
