Handpieces and accessories are sold separately.
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 115V motor. It is the successor to the no longer in production EE series, R series, & 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.
The Foredom LX series motors use different speed controls than the Foredom SR.
The Foredom LX-LXH series, like the Foredom TX-TXH series, are permanent magnet ball bearing motors that run on DC current. You cannot modify or adapt a SR series control to work on a LX or TX series motor. These controls may look the same as the standard models, however they have special electronics that convert AC current from an electrical outlet to DC current, the type required by the TX-TXH, LX-LXH motors. The TXR, SXR and EMX controls for the TX-TXH, LX -LXH motors also have different syle plugs that are made to fit the TX-TXH, LX-LXH shielded plug.
LX series motors ARE available in 230V.
