A flexible shaft carving tool is an electric wood carving tool that runs on a small motor and has a flexible shaft with interchangeable burrs and drill bits. Its interchangeability is one of its most distinct advantages, since there are a lot of burrs and bits available that can satisfy any woodcarver's requirements. It is often used on smaller wood carvings, and most woodcarvers prefer to use it when doing finishing touches. There are several companies that offer flexible shaft wood carving tools, and most of these tools come with a set of standard burrs and bits.

AUTOMACH Power Carver

The Power Carver is a reciprocating carving tool that's made with an aluminium cast body and powered by an 80-watt ball bearing motor. It comes standard with five blades that can carve even the toughest woods. It is also vibration-free, allowing woodcarvers to direct it precisely the way they want. Its motor is capable of producing 10,000 vibrations per minute, and its blades are designed to cut in a precise manner, leaving a smooth surface on the wood. It comes with a 6-foot grounded cord for maneuverability, a rear on/off switch, a hanger equipped with the motor and two spanner wrenches.

Power Carving Kit

The Power Carving Kit comes with a two-way action: a rotary action and a reciprocating action. It has a motor that can be set with variable speeds, allowing more flexibility and control. It comes standard with a 1/8-inch collet with shaft to easily change bits and burrs, a hanger or folding bail to hang the unit, and a separate on/off switch. This kit also includes two diamond burrs, five pieces of detailing burrs, two straight chisels, and three other chisel types. It also includes a shaft adaptor nut and a hand piece wrench and a case for the unit and all its accessories.
