The Automach WCS-100 is a professional grade reciprocating carver powered by a rotary motor and shaft. It might seem a tad cumbersome having the motor in a box when compared to a hanging rotary carver, but Automach made its flex shaft softer and quieter, as well as creating a thinner handpiece (30mm) that improves user comfort and reduces fatigue. This means you can carve longer and also faster. The WSC-100 features 12,000 reciprocations per minute, with a 1.5mm depth. The carving speed is quick, turning directions a snap, and the surface is amazingly smooth plus the handpiece only reciprocates when pressed against the wood’s hard surface so there is little danger of a mishap when not being used for carving.
The unit is 250mm X 170mm X 230mm and is rated for continuous usage.
