Well I've finally gotten a chance
to work with the new Air Chasing Graver and it is really wonderful. It
took me a while to get it set up and actually start engraving since it's a
totally new system, but I think there's no going back....
The Air Graver is a beautiful
piece of precision machinery. I cannot believe how smoothly it
operates and how it is able to operate at such a low air pressure. I
really like it and can eagerly recommend it to anyone looking for a high
precision reciprocating graver.
I have been engraving with air engraving tools for about five years. They have worked quite well but have never really handled like the hand push gravers I use for sqecial effects on my custom jewelry. I received the "Lindsay Air Chasing Graver" and was pleased to find that this graver gave me that control and feel fo the hand graver. The Lindsay Graver has done every cut I have put before it with great ease. The control is what I like the most, plus its size.
I have found it to be a great tool for wax carving. If you are into "Lost Wax Casting" and create your own wax models, you should try this tool. You will love it.
I find the air graver to be very quiet. The other hand engraving machines I have used have a lot more noise. My bright cutting has improved at least 50% right off the bat. I love the way it starts to cut, and the control over the cut is just great.
Thanks Steve for a great air
The Air Chasing Graver seems
wonderfully small, perfectly balanced and fits nicely in my hand. Much better
than other gravers which seem too big! You seem to be the only one in the
whole industry who has noticed this!
