just received my new ”PalmControl” handle attached to my Lindsay “Classic” engraver. As always, in purchasing a fine piece of equipment from Steve Lindsay,
it was all set to engrave. I spent about fifteen minutes installing the control and I was engraving.
Hi..Steve. What can l say !! Your airgravers are absolutely fantastic !! even better than when l tried them in Reno. They
are great to hold an absolute joy to use. l sometimes find myself just looking at them in my hand almost spellbound, and then smiling to myself that I've actually got
them in front of me and using them on a piece of work, l did my first bit of gold inlay yesterday with the 'classic' the power and flexibility from it, to hammer in
the gold was just great, when l think l had to use two tools before, what a time saver? Your airgravers are now the only one's for me Steve !! Everything else has
just been made redundant. You are to be congratulated and applauded on the quality of manufacture, design and shear beauty of these tool !!
Hi Steve, I love this tool so much and it is soooo trouble free that I haven't looked at your web site for two years or more. As a life long steel die and copper plate engraver, I shutter to think of how easy my working life would have been if only we had had your tool. Now, handicapped by a stroke which left my right side partially paralyzed engraving was impossible until I found your tool. words can not express my appreciation.
Anyone using traditional methods hasn't any idea just how wonderful and helpful your invention really is. I feel it brings
the age old tradition of decorating metal with art into the space age with the most advanced system since the hammer and burin.
Steve, The three of us at Smyth Jewelers now have five AirGravers between us and we use them for absolutely everything. The other day I figured that I've used the Classic about 6500 hours in the two years I've owned it and it still runs as good as the day I took it out of the pouch. The AirGravers give us maximum control engraving inside rings and on curved surfaces. And since we've been using them we have cut down to almost zero the amount of time spent repairing items due to slips.
We are considering adding an AirGraver with the PalmControl handle to the shop for the bench jewelers to use since it can be used by more than one jeweler to use when bright cutting during setting. The PalmControl is a natural for setters who put a lot of pressure into the handle for bright cutting. And no foot pedal to move, just hand the Lindsay back and forth between the benches. This is perfect for shops with jewelers who sit side by side at separate benches.
