I have and use on a daily basis an NSK E-Max Micromotor. I was
wondering if anyone out there has or has used a hammer handpiece
for this motor. I currantly use a Badeco Swiss handpiece w/a spring
and sometimes find it alittle awkward to use with the flex shaft
pulling on it sometimes. Yes,I have adjusted the hight and angle of
the flex shaft to try and negate this problem. Is the E-Max easier
to control and can you adjust the speed of the strikes (like the
I can’t offer any suggestions for the Micromotor, but you might
consider replacing the outer sheath on your flexshaft. Assuming it’s
a Foredom, there’s a neoprene outer sheath available that is much
more flexible than the standard sheath that comes with the flexshaft
as standard equipment. The neoprene sheath is item L #117-556 on page
276 of Rio Grande’s 2008 tool catalog.
I replaced the original sheath on one of my flexshafts with one &
found it makes the handpiece much easier to maneuver.
