The LX is great for use with hammer handpieces and drill presses, uses that take advantage of the LX series motor's low speeds and constant torque.
The Foredom LX Series is a special High-Torque, Low Speed flex shaft motor built for the jewelry stone setter. It is a 1/10HP, maximum RPM 5000, permanent magnet ball bearing motor. It is the successor to the no longer in production EE series, R series and the original L series units that were developed for the professional jewelry stone setter. Stone setters work at low speeds, and need high-torque motors that won't bog down under load. This motor is excellent for anyone who drills at lower speeds, It is also the recommended motor for using hammer handpieces, like the Badeco hammer handpiece, as hammer handpieces should only be used at low speeds, usually under 3000 rpm.
Please note: The LX requires it's own special foot control to work. Make sure your LX is only used with a Foredom C.TXR (plastic housing) or C.SXR (metal housing) foot control. If you wish to use a bench mounted speed control, you must use a Foredom EMX bench mounted control. Using the LX with any other type or make of control unit may damage the motor.
