SR Motor Advantages 

The SR Motor by Foredom offers a number of unique advantages for grinding, carving, and polishing projects. For example, reversing the motor direction allows for better control of dust and debris, as they are blown away from the workpiece instead of towards it.

This also helps to extend the life of mounted tools such as abrasive points and sanding bands. In addition, reverse rotation can improve symmetry in grinding and carving techniques, as well as assist with removing stuck drill bits.

The SR Motor's ability to reverse direction also makes metal polishing faster and more efficient. It is important to note that when using the SR Motor in reverse, a left-hand threaded arbor screw should be used on the mandrel. Overall, the SR Motor's reverse rotation capabilities offer a variety of benefits for both professionals and hobbyists alike.

When the handpiece/accessory is in use on a workpiece, the forward rotation direction is clockwise. Foredom motors are widely recognized for their quality, power, and performance.

Foredom also offers a wide range of Attachments and Accessories that fit onto the flexible shafts to enable users to perform an infinite number of tasks.
