Here our most popular flex shaft model, the MSR hang-up style motor, comes equipped with a longer, heavy duty square drive shaft and protective sheath. It is teamed up with the C.SCT-1 foot operated speed control in heavy duty cast iron housing.
CSA listed. Two Year Limited Warranty on Motor and Control.
MSRH Motor Description:
This heavy duty model has exactly the same motor specifications as the MSR. Foredom's 1/6 HP, universal, flexible shaft machine runs in forward and reverse rotation at speeds up to 18,000 RPM. It combines the most important features our customers expect - power, reversibility, reliability, and versatility - all in one motor. This model comes equipped with a motor bale for hanging, and a 63" long, square drive shaft and heavy duty protective sheath in place of the standard key-tip shaft and sheath. Heavy duty shafts and sheaths can ONLY work with Foredom's four square drive handpieces- the H.25H, H.30H, H.44HT and H.28H.
Heavy duty flex shafts are the ultimate power tools for deburring, buffing, grinding, polishing and metal finishing of any kind with larger rotary accessories. They are great for large scale woodcarving and sculpting applications with carbide or steel burs and larger mounted grinding stones.
C.SCT-1 Speed ControlDescription:
The C.SCT-1 offers the same electronics and smooth control as the C.FCT-1 but in a much heavier, 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. 7" long, 5" wide, 2-1/2" high, ship wt 6 lb/2.7 kg.

Additional Motor Details:
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
