Product Information:

Tackle a complete range of projects with this heavy-duty Power Carving Kit - from fine detail work with smaller burrs to roughing-out at a much greater speed than you could with less powerful motors. And the powerful 1/4 hp motor is reversible - a bonus for left-handed carvers. This carver has a super flexible 42" shaft that does not require lubrication, eliminating the messy chore of disassembling and greasing the shaft. Kit includes:1/4 HP, 120v, 20,000 rpm motor, variable speed heavy-duty foot control pedal, standard rotary hand piece, 3 collets (3/32", 1/8", 1/4"), wrench, and tool hanger. Standard Hand piece fits comfortably in your hand because of its tapered end. Provides great control for detail work and makes it easy to get into hard to reach areas.

    Comments about Wecheer 1/4 HP Flexible Shaft Carver Kit :

    Not good. This is an example of you get what you pay for. In the approx 5 months I've owned this tool I have broken two outer shafts and two inner shafts carving one woodturning. The handpiece heats up too. I've had Foredom in the past and today I will return this and upgrade back to the Foredom again. Woodcraft has been extremely patient and understanding with the issues I've had with this machine. Their customer service told me today wecheer was very slow and difficult to get any parts from and once again offered to replace the shafts. I've had it.

    Comments about Wecheer 1/4 HP Flexible Shaft Carver Kit :

    I'm a decoy carver and needed something that would work faster than a Dremmel tool. The Wecheer does just that. Easy to understand right out of the box. Like the forward and reverse function too. Can wait to make some sawdust once duck season is over!

    Comments about Wecheer 1/4 HP Flexible Shaft Carver Kit :

    I use the Wecheer flexible shaft carver mainly for fast removal when bird carving. Gets the heavy stuff off quickly. I use the Kutzall carbide burrs for this. I have noticed on carving forums of complaints of shaft getting hot. Follow the directions, DO NOT OIL THE SHAFT. The directions say Not to oil the shaft. There is no problem with the shaft, I run mine for hours without heating problems. I am very pleased with this carver, and will be ordering another one soon for use making bowls on my wood lathe.

    Comments about Wecheer 1/4 HP Flexible Shaft Carver Kit :

    I use this carver for detailing jewelry, boxes, walking sticks, etc. In fact, I put it on its hanger and I leave it ready to go. I use my Dremel for some things but I have found that it has taken a backseat to the WeCheer. The carver is easier to use for detailing because of its lightweight. But it will hog some material of whatever your doing with the right bits. Comes with three collets, the footcontrol, a hanger, and the burr changing stuff. Changing the burr is a snap.
