For deep engraving as used in
Motorcycle and Heavier Western Engravings
The NitroG20 will work with either a foot control or with a PalmControl handle. It has a larger and
longer internal bore and piston than the Classic or Artisan handpieces. The NitroG20 comes standard with a heavy 20gram Tungsten piston. Price of
the handpiece and tungsten piston is $1295. CFM air volume requirement to run the tools is 0.9 CFM at 70 to 90PSI. The Supersilent 20-A compressor is too
small. The Supersilent 50-TC is large enough though as it outputs 2.0CFM at 84PSI to 114PSI. Other compressors that can out put at least
.90CFM at 80PSI should work fine with the tool. The tool can also be run with a 80psi CO2 regulator either in a foot control setup or PalmControl setup.
The 80PSI CO2 regulator is listed below.
Note from Steve: I usually
recommend the Classic with a tungsten piston, unless the person
is only doing heavy engraving all the time..i.e. car or
motorcycle parts then I recommend the Nitro. The reason is
that the Classic is easier to do detail work with but since the
stroke is adjustable, it can be setup for harder hitting..
making it like a number of handpieces in one. Later if needed
the Nitro could be purchased for an a second handpiece. The
Classic with the tungsten piston can be taken up to 80 psi.
Also set at a long or short stroke or somewhere in between.
The NitroG20 is included with one presharpened M42, one M42 graver blank, two HSS graver blanks, handpiece tubing wrenches
and an owners manual.
