PalmControl® AirGraver®; NO MORE FOOT PEDALS!
  A Variable hand pressure activated handle for the AirGravers has been developed, patented.
The legal enforceable claims of the patent protect a hand push pressure activated power tool used in the hand engraving and jewelry fields.  The PalmControl® utilizes the palm pressure and grip used traditionally by engravers and jewelers. Learning to engrave with the PalmControl® comes naturally since it is not necessary to coordinate the hand and foot.  The hand is more sensitive than the foot and capable of subtle corrections giving improved responsiveness to the tool and work.
