Happy New Year All-
I’m going to purchase an NSK EMax Evolution micromotor and am considering the handpeice with the 4-1 gear reduction. I would like to use this for all burr work, drilling and polishing.I have a portable Foredom micro motor and while its good for some things, it just does not have enough torque at low speeds and is useless for drilling and polishing which I do with a flex shaft. I also use the flex shaft with a hammer hand-piece and will continue with that.
I generally use a pretty low speed for most of the burr applications and this is why I’m thinking of the 4-1 gear reduction. I know that the top end torque will be the same for both regular or gear reduced hand-pieces, but wondering about the impact of the lower top speeds? I’m guessing that this might effect polishing more than burr or drilling? Can anyone recommend one over the other?
