Proxxon 12-Volt Tools

Note: All Proxxon 12-volt tools require an AC adapter/power supply unless there is one included with the tool (Model Building and Glass Engraving Sets have an adapter included).

All prices are in Candian Dollars

The Adapters:

38706 - Micromot AC Adapter NG 2/S

Safe and efficient power source for hand-held 12V tools
(rotary tool and burrs shown in photo are not included)

Very compact design. NORYL casing (heat resistant - a necessity for transformer enclosures). Capacity 2.0A at 16 Volt open circuit - and 12 Volt under load = 24VA (DC). Primary supply 110-120V. Polarized socket for Micromot plug. Red LED indicates readiness for use. PTC (Positive temperature coefficient) element prevents overload, the plugged in tool will not automatically restart. After cooling down, the AC wall plug should be disconnected briefly to reset the adapter. Modern design with holes for storing bits. Foldable tool rest provides a secure place for keeping the Micromot tool ready for use.

38704 - Micromot AC Adapter NG 5/E

A heavy duty transformer with speed control and enough sockets to plug in 3 separate Micromot 12-volt tools at a time (tool and burrs shown in photo are not included).


This AC adapter with electronic speed control comes in a compact, heat resistant NORYL casing and has a capacity of 5.0A at 16V no load and 12 Volt under load = 60 VA (DC). Primary supply at 110-120V. The thyristor electronic control (with feedback) allows for optimum tool speed and high torque at low speeds.

The workstation offers three polarized sockets for Micromot 12-volt machinesand an additional pair of sockets for standard banana plugs with 5/32" diameter (4 mm diameter). It has a master switch for turning off the transformer without needing to unplug. The red LED shows "ready". A PTC (positive temperature coefficient) element guarantees protection against overload, the plugged in machine will not restart automatically. Once cooled down, the AC wall plug should briefly be unplugged to reset the adapter. The whole unit comes in a very compact and practical design with foldable tool rest and storage holes to insert bits and burrs with shafts of 3/32" and 7/64" (2.35 and 3 mm).

The Tools:

28510 - MICROMOT Rotary Tool  50/E
