days ago and I must say that once again I'm impressed, this time even more so
then usual. Currently I own 4 of the Lindsay gravers and each has performed

AirGravers after long term
usage by Adone T. Pozzobon
The Ultimate Classic AirGraver arrived. I am astonished
at the small size. After reading the directions and getting it set up I
started on a practice plate. Everything that has been said about these
AirGravers is correct, within an hour I was cutting away with control that I
could not believe. I turned down the tool pressure to 10 PSI and it cuts
steel like butter. I am sure the graver you supplied and sharpened has
something to do with it too. To say that I am happy is the under
statement of the century.
I spent three hours with the Classic AirGraver.
First hour poring over the instructions, about ten minutes mounting the
control unit and checking how everything went together - and then I was off...
Pretty neat idea, including a sharp carbide graver! Didn't even need to
find a wrench to get one out of a collet from my old engraving machine.
Just stuck it in and started. After about half an hour of play, tweaking
the controls to see how everything worked - I was cutting like I used to when
I was a puppy! Amazing difference from the clunky stuff I'd been using.
There is a saying "Them that can, do - them that
can't, teach". After this experience, I believe I "can" once again!
In the past couple of hours, I cannot believe the
difference! It's like the microscope giving you a new pair of eyes. Your
machine has given me back what I thought I'd lost forever - perfect control..

Additional feedback concerning AirGraver delivery & service by Brian Marshall
I would like to express my extreme satisfaction with my
recent purchase of one of your Air Chasing Gravers. I originally purchased it
because I wanted to do more Bulino style engraving and also because I had read
so many good comments about it on the Engraver's Forum and also the review by
Mr. Pozzobon. I have been engraving with a hammer and chisel for eight years
and all of my Banknote engraving is done with traditional push gravers.
I wanted the ACG to help me shorten up the enormous amount of time it takes to
do a Bulino scene with my handgravers. Well, I must say this tool is AWESOME!
It is not limited to fine line work at all, in fact, I now do the majority of
my engraving with it. I have tried other pneumatic gravers on the market and
could never get used to the feel of the hand pieces or the fact that they made
my hand go numb from the vibration. Your AirGraver was such and easy
transition for me because it feels exactly like my hand gravers. The
difference between your tool and the others on the market is astounding. It
cuts so smooth and vibration free. Your Air Chasing Graver is clearly the
Rolls Royce of the engraving industry and has set the standard by which all
others will be judged. After I received it, I couldn't help but take it
apart and find out how it works. I was surprised at how simple the
design is but at the same time I was overwhelmed by the incredible attention
to detail and craftsmanship that went into the production of this little
jewel. It is about as close to engineering perfection as I have ever seen. You
have given the engraving community a wonderful gift by offering these tools
for sale, Steve.
Thank you very much,

engraving was greatly influenced by him. Mr. Patch is also a member
