MicroMotors are detailers and are versatile bench top wood carving tools. The handpiece houses a DC motor within. Providing much higher speed performance and as well as more flexibility. Therefore distinguishes them from flex shaft models. While Micro Motors have much less torque than flex shaft machines they do offer much more control. However, their higher speed results in a comparable rate of material removal with a lighter touch. They have a simple coil cord connection between the handpiece motor and control box. This therefore allows for complete freedom of movement that cannot be achieved when using a flexible shaft machine.
Keep in Mind
Keep in mind however, that Micro Motors are not designed to hog away waste wood! Use a heavier flexshaft motor for that. but when it comes to adding fine detail and texturing, Micro Motors are king!
