Artist Steve Lindsay www.EngravingArtist.com originally designed and made the
for himself because of a need to increase his engraving speed and yet maintain the quality of his work. This is not say that any work should be rushed through.
In delicate areas, more deliberate work will need to be done, but there are also some parts of a project where, with confidence, faster work can be done. The amount of
time it takes to engrave a project is foremost and the speed at which the
AirGraverŽ can physically cut through metal when needed is at least three times that of the
spring blow-pulse design tool Steve Lindsay used for 20 years.
That earlier tool was designed by Steve's father, Frank Lindsay (a watch maker, jeweler and gemologist) in 1979. The spring blow pulse design can
still be found on the market. The improved system is called an
AirGraverŽ. Perhaps it should not be labeled a system because the tool itself is the entire system. The
box that used to be upon the bench creating pulses of air for the earlier machine is not needed with the new
The AirGraverŽ is also unique in that the speed and power increase proportionately. This allows the benefit of
increased speed to move a graver point through a cut when desired. The older blow pulse design tool would only increase in power and not speed. The operator had to
reach up to a separate box to change the speed. The end result of the
AirGraverŽ is a very transparent throttle response. You can start and finish engraving jobs more
quickly and the quality of the engraving is much improved.
The AirGraverŽ may also be used
with Steve Lindsay's patented PalmControlŽ technology:
PalmControlŽ can increase the speed of learning compared to foot pedal engraving. This is
because the PalmControlŽ is intuitive and natural in the sense that what is done with your hand is what you get. There is no need to learn to coordinate
continual foot movement to every hand movement.
AirGraverŽ is available with
exhibition grade burl handle.
