For us with the Foredom 5240 flexible shaft motor carving machine. Simply unclip the existing hand-piece and replace with the 50C Power carver. This clever little tool changes the rotary motion into a reciprocating one capable of powering the chisels and gouges supplied. Engineered to the exacting standards you would expect from Foredom the unit has a tough textured plastic body with machined aluminum tip and connector. Inside is a very simple cam mechanism that is quickly accessible for maintenance (lubricate every 200 hours of use).
For best results and good tool life use between 1000-8000 rpm on your Foredom machine. Six chisel patterns are included and these mount very quickly into the tool with a small spanner provided.
The super slick action of the tool allows incredibly close intricate carving work to be performed almost without effort. Very little pressure is required to remove large volumes of wood unlike more conventional gouges and chisels. This is good for bonsai work where it's easy to disturb new root growth. The gouges work almost like spoons and allow you to scoop wood out of hollows with uncanny ease. External shaping is effortless using the flat chisels in the kit.
Carves wood without making dust. This fantastic tool will open up a whole new world of possibilities in bonsai and wood carving.
