Foredom’s kit model K.2252 is a pre-packed Chisel Wood Carving Kit includes the LX motor with the EMX table top speed control, the 50C Chisel Handpiece with 17 Chisels and a tube of Grease (see details below).
1. Series LX Motor:
The LX motor is a permanent magnet motor is specifically designed for high torque/low speed applications, offering more power for jobs like stone setting, wax modeling, and pearl drilling. M.LX, M.LXM, and M.LXB ball bearing motors feature full power and torque from start-up and throughout the entire speed range up to 5,000 rpm. They are ideal for use with Foredom’s drill presses. They also are well matched with the H.18, H.15 and H.15D Quick Change and Hammer Handpieces for stone setting. It comes equipped with a motor bale for hanging, and our standard 39" long key-tip inner shaft and outer sheath for connecting to any of Foredom’s interchangeable, quick disconnect handpieces.
Foredom’s permanent magnet motors require the use of a C.TXR, C.SXR, or C.EMX speed control. Damage will result if the motor is connected to any other speed control.
2. C.EMX-2 Speed Control:
The EMX is a table top speed control, is constructed of heavy duty plastic with durable solid state electronics. It has a dial control for precise speed settings, as well as good repeatability of previous settings. The C.EMX-1 has special electronics that converts AC current from an electrical outlet to DC current- the type required by the motor. It also has a special plug that fits the motor's shielded plug.
3. H.50 Chisel Handpiece:
Foredom's 50C chisel handpiece gives a power assist to carving projects in all types of wood, plastic, and plaster. This handpiece has a contoured body design that features a rugged plastic barrel and tapered aluminum ends. The easy to maintain chisel handpiece is recommended for use at low speed with Series TX and LX motors and in forward rotation only with Series SR motors. Handpiece attaches to any flex shaft machine with a standard key tip shaft. The Chisel Handpiece must be used only in the forward motor direction.
- Optimum Speed Range- 3,000-10,000 rpm.
- Max. Operating Speed- 18,000 rpm.
- Handpiece specifications: 6" long, 1" in diameter, 4.6 oz.
After every 200 hours of use you should clean and lubricate this handpiece. The old grease must be cleaned off of the interior cam chamber and replaced with new lubricant. If you do not have Foredom Grease (Part No. MS10008), it is available in our web store under Supplies and Parts - Lubrication- All Lubricants. Follow the instructions that came with your handpiece or click on the link for step by step maintenance instructions.
Using the chisel handpiece with a dial speed control is easier than with a foot operated control. Table top dial controls are available separately and named below. Consider ordering a kit containing the chisel handpiece and dial speed control (kit depends on motor -M.TX & M.LX or M.SR- that you have). Certain Foredom bench mounted flex shafts also come with dial controls built into their bases (models M.LXM, M.TXM and M.SRM).
