The possibilities are endless with the 400xs from SCM.

This is the ultimate detailing tool. Over 30 years of innovation have gone into this handpiece. With the handpiece spinning at over 400,000 rpm you will be able to engrave into nearly any surface as if you were drawing with a pen. Utilizing the contemporary science of ergonomics to fit your hand with maximum ease and a vibration-free operation, it’s designed for hours of the most comfortable operation possible and profitable performance!

No more ruining projects like with slow speed drills. You will have the utmost control due to the turbine spinning at over 400,000rpms. With the bits only being .05mm - 2mm in diameter (which is as fine as a human hair) no other tool will provide the amount of detail that SCM’s 400xs Power Carver can.
