Phil Coggan Review
of the
Lindsay PalmControl® AirGraver®

The Lindsay PalmControl is an extremely well-designed power graver. The workmanship is of a very high standard, as is possible to see from just a photo, but holding the tool in your hand confirms it. The adjustable controls of the tool are another key feature. The idle control allows the tool to start cutting when you want it to. The tool’s adjustable stroke length allows one to cut very fine bulino lines, but by rotating the adjustment ring and psi, these fine cuts turn into power chiseling for removing deep background for carved work and the like. I am at the moment carving the second gun of a pair using the PalmControl, the carving is 'deep' but the PalmControl cuts the metal away like butter. It is surprising how much physical effort is involved with work like this, but the PalmControl has greatly reduced that stress level. Another adjustable feature is the small palm resistance adjustment screw located in the PalmControl’s handle. Giving it a half turn clockwise increases the tool’s resistance, which will satisfy those who need a heavier feel. For competent engravers changing over from push to the PalmControl there is virtually no learning curve, after under two hours’ practice I was straight into that second gun. For those who are learning to engrave, the most difficult part of using a push tool is controlling the pushing process and avoiding slips. With the PalmControl your tool works for you; you only need to guide it! As far as I'm concerned, the Lindsay PalmControl is worth every penny.
