Harbor Freight Flex Shafts


#1

I am thinking about purchasing a few of these flex shafts for
Metalwerx.

They wouldn’t be used every day, but rather for the times we
have class and workshops. It would be nice to have one at each
bench.

Any other comments before I plunk down a couple hundred bucks?

How are the handles? Are they comparable to the #30 from
Fordham?

The handpiece is very similar to the #30 with the Jacobs type
chuck. Bearing life? Foot pedal is sewing machine type. They do
provide an extra set of motor brushes . You probably will get
reasonable service if not overloaded. I bought one but really
haven’t tried to break it yet as I definately did not need it.
