Maintenance: 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 Suuplies and Parts - Lubrication- All Lubricants. Follow the instructions that came with your handpiece or click on the link for step by step maintenance instructions.

Operating Tip: Using the new 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 -TX or SR- that you have). Certain Foredom bench mounted flex shafts also come with dial controls built into their bases (models SRM and TXM).
Dial Speed Controls:
  • EM (for Series S, SR, CC and L motors)
  • EMH (for Series H motors)
  • EMX (for Series TX and TXH motors)
Kits with Chisel Handpiece and Dial Speed Control (also includes 11 chisels):
