The Foredom Motor has three different speed settings: OFF – no rotation. FORWARD – clockwise shaft rotation as you work. It is the most commonly used setting. This is a tabletop version the SM motor with a built in dial control for the speed.The base rotates to make easier access to your carving.
Right-handed people will get the most control in Forward. REVERSE – counterclockwise shaft rotation as you work. If you point a powered handpiece toward your face as it runs in forward the accessory will appear to be running counter-clockwise.
Foredom flexible shaft machines are designed to operate in either direction, forward or reverse. The advantages of running the motor in the reverse direction may not be immediately apparent, but they are numerous. Perhaps the most significant advantage is that left-handed users will have better control when running the Foredom motor in the reverse direction.
Other advantages include the fact that dust and debris will fly away from the workpiece in reverse, and that reversing the motor direction can extend the life of mounted abrasive points, buffs, brushes, sanding bands, and Typhoon® burs. Reverse rotation is also helpful for accomplishing symmetrical grinding and carving techniques, and for "backing out" stuck drill bits. In addition, reversing the motor direction makes it easier and faster to polish metals. When using a Foredom motor in the reverse direction, be sure to use a mandrel with a left-hand threaded arbor screw.
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. They are used in a variety of industries including woodworking, automotive, marine, aerospace, and jewelry making. 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. Foredom Tools are the preferred choice of professional artisans and hobbyists around the world.

Woodcarving Bur Set
The Accessories Kit contains several different rotary accessories that can be used for a variety of purposes. The different accessories have different diameter shanks, so it is important to pair them with the same size collet. Installation and changing of handpiece accessories are easy to do, as detailed instructions are included in the kit.
Always use a light touch for high-speed work, and be gentle when applying pressure to wood to avoid burning it. If a more aggressive performance is desired, then you should probably use a more aggressive or coarser grit bur. In general, the speed of the tool should do the work - never force the tool to do more than what is necessary. Following these guidelines will help you get the most out of your Accessories Kit.
Change Handpiece Collets
Changing collets on your handpiece is a relatively easy process, but it's important to follow the instructions carefully to avoid damaging the collet or the spindle. First, insert the pin provided into the pilot hole and align it with the spindle hole. Then, apply a wrench and unscrew the chuck nut by turning it counterclockwise.
Next, remove the chuck nut to expose the collet. Pull the collet out of the handpiece spindle, and then slip the new collet in place. Finally, screw on the chuck nut. Caution: Never screw the chuck nut back on too tightly, as this can damage the collet or spindle.
Also be careful not to insert an accessory that is too small or too large for the collet, as this can also cause damage. Changing collets on your handpiece is a relatively easy process, but it's important to follow these instructions carefully to avoid damaging the collet or spindle.
To Change Accessories
Changing your drill bit or other accessory is a fairly simple process, but it's important to follow the steps carefully to avoid damaging your tool. First, be sure that the shank size of the accessory you're using is paired with the same size collet.
Inserting an accessory that's too small or too large can damage the collet. Next, insert the provided pin into the pilot hole and through the spindle hole. Apply a wrench and loosen the chuck nut slightly by turning it counterclockwise.
Then, insert the shank of the accessory into the collet as far as it will go. Tighten the chuck nut with a wrench, keeping the pin in the pilot hole. Test for a secure hold by pulling on the accessory. Once you're sure it's secure, you can remove the pin. Changing accessories on your drill doesn't have to be difficult - just be sure to follow these simple steps.
