Foredom compact variable speed polishing system. Foredom has hit a home run with this one! Many new polishing wheels work best with lower speeds, including platinum polishing wheels and the 3M FX polishing wheels for gold & silver.
This compact lathe is suitable for use at the workbench or at a stand up polishing station. It has a 1/6 hp, high torque, permanent magnet variable speed motor that is extremely quiet and smooth running with all the power and speed required for a variety of polishing and buffing jobs. Cast iron base has mounting holes and suction cup feet for a secure hold on the work surface. Comes with precision machined right hand and left hand tapered spindles for holding buffs and wheels up to 4" in diameter. Connect the included hoods to a dust collector unit or a shop vac, and you've got a compact variable speed polishing system for a low price. Even do some light lapidary work with the Foredom foam wheel and belts item 117.925. Low speed is a must for delicate light touch customer keepsakes like opals and cameos. 3M Radial Bristle discs and texturing wheels work great at low speeds. There are so many reasons why every shop should have the versatile Foredom variable speed motor.
