Ken, Thanks for pointing out the detail about the faro replacement
duplex spring. I use an old Phingst and assumed that this and the
foredom models were all made by the same manufacturer and marketed
under different names. While $24.95 for the faro replacement
duplex(from Frie Borel) is not an excessive price for a part that I
break only a couple of times a year, it is enough for me to change
my recommendation to the Foredom #10D.
Do you have any idea why Faro went this direction? Do you feel there
is any improvement?
