Thanks for the comments on the Faro. #8 and some other collet
styles are cheaper, but I hear they get hot and Faro doesn’t —
is that true in your experience? Also, why the Faro specifically
WITHOUT the duplex spring?
The Faro doesn’t get hot at all. My preference is without the
spring- I run the handpiece at rather high speed with the carbide
burs- so it is just personal preference. The collet will stick
after a while (a couple years), but just lubricate it with a bit
of oil. I also now like the Lucas foot control for the S
machines- nice product.
