I got this reply from Foredom a year or so ago

 

Thank you for your interest in our products. I recommend using our 1/3 HP TX motor kit TX300. It has our most powerful TX motor with a foot pedal speed control for hands free use. It also comes with our H.30 chuck style handpiece that accepts a wide range of shank sizes including all the ones you have from your Dremel. Other knife makes use and recommend this kit. I have attached a link below to our web page where you can check it out.

 

I have found this kit available on Ebay, but not for much less than retail. You might get lucky on craigslist, my Father-in-law found one at a garage sale for $20 :angry: .

Not to be trouble maker, but what are you going to do with it. There are many types of rotary tools and each as an optimized niche...

I gotta say i got a SR series Foredom from Riogrande.com and while they were not the cheapest price out there i love the customer service there. I had some issues with the chuck on the hand piece when i got it and explained the issue and my time constraints to them and they just mailed me a replacement part and told me not to worry about it.

 

Any place that is will to give me that level of service will get my business and my recommendation!

Well, I have gouged around with a Dremmel for years, and I would like something with more control.

 

Basically handle carving in wood, bone, horn, etc.

 

Also, I have played around a bit with some non-ferrous jewelry and such.

 

Some of the stuff I've seen here done in steel is amazing, but I would definitely have to work up to that.
