The various embodiments of the present invention provide a system and method for delivering a haptic force feedback during a vocational tool operation. According to an embodiment, the system comprises a moving capstan drive mechanism connected to a holder and a motor. A sensor detects the rotation speed of a motor. A control circuit is connected to the sensor and to an information processor loaded with virtual reality environment software to provide a feedback force to the user, when the holder is displaced. The linear displacement of the holder is converted into a rotational movement of motor. The sensor outputs a signal based on the rotational speed of the motor to the control circuit to provide a haptic feedback force to a user and to provide a display, when the holder is displaced linearly by the user.
