The Lindsay PalmControl is an extremely well-designed power graver. The workmanship is of a very high standard, as is possible to see from just a photo, but holding the tool in your hand confirms it. The adjustable controls of the tool are another key feature. The idle control allows the tool to start cutting when you want it to. The tool’s adjustable stroke length allows one to cut very fine bulino lines, but by rotating the adjustment ring and psi, these fine cuts turn into power chiseling for removing deep background for carved work and the like. As far as I'm concerned, the Lindsay PalmControl is worth every penny.

I have been engraving for over thirty years now, using hand gravers mainly, but also hammer & chisel. About 1 1/2 years ago I bought one of Steve Lindsay's palm control graver systems & it has changed my life. It is so nice to use, I started using it in conjunction with my other tools but, now I use it for 95% of my work. It has taken the strain out of my work. I don't get the neck & shoulder aches that I always got after a long days work & using the tungsten piston for heavier work you still get the power of a hammer & chisel when you need it.
The second thing that has changed my life is the Lindsay sharpening system. It is the easiest thing to sharpen a graver now. Before I bought these templates, I could spend hours sharpening my tools, only to have them break time & time again. One of the hardest things to do, when I was an apprentice was to learn to sharpen a graver properly. Now with this system I can sharpen a graver accurately every time, saving many hours of frustrating work. I would recommend both of these tools to anyone wanting to engrave.

I have been very busy in my main line of work. I recently acquired a Palm Control and have grabbed bits of time to use it. I cannot believe the Absolute Fine control This Outstanding tool has ! Right from the get go, not even having time or experience using it ! I haven't changed any settings on it or tried the heavy piston yet. But I find that it has great power digging deep too. And Smooth ! The ability to go slow and careful to faster and deeper, smoothly through the whole power band. Its a DREAM machine ! And i haven't even explored the range of power and stroke settings possible with it. I am Truly impressed. I don't have to learn how to control it, it just does what its supposed to. Right from the tiniest start. This is important. There is no sudden , explosive take off or hesitation. Totally smooth and predictable. This has lifted a level of stress I didn't realize I had until I started using it. I have owned a lot of tools in my life. It's Simply the best tool I have ever owned. This is more than a tool , its a fine instrument. I can now focus on learning technique. Successfully beginning a cut is no longer a concern.  I am Humbly honored to have any association of any kind with this Historic and revolutionary tool. It is a brilliant design and invention. I have bought and used tools all my life, good tools. I've done a lot of things in my life, I make my living with my tools and equipment. The Lindsay Palm Control has impressed me beyond any tool I have ever owned.

Hello Steve, I thought I would let you know I finally was able to give the Classic a try. I can't say anything that hasn't already been said before, it's just a great tool. I have only worked with traditional push and chase engraving, but never really gained the confidence or feeling for the tools. This lead to a limited amount of time I spent using and or learning to use those tools. After using the Classic AirGraver for a couple of hours I find it hard to put down and do other things that I need to get done. When working on a practice plates I find myself wanting to hurry and finish so I can start another and try to make it better. The Classic has given me more feeling of control plus the advantage of being able to concentrate on that control. It cuts smooth with little effort on my part allowing me to focus my attention on the design and guide lines. Again thanks for a great tool that's enjoyable to work with. I really like using the AirGraver.

Steve, your PalmControl is without a doubt the finest power assist tool I’ve ever used, and I’ve used them all. When you use the PalmControl you can fine tune it to achieve the finest detail.  When you first advertised the Palm Control in the FEGA newsletter where I read, “No more foot pedal”, that got my attention for what came to mind was its possible use by handicapped individuals. I am looking forward to using the Palm Control in demonstrations at up coming shows. The PalmControl will be incorporated into classes taught by me at my School of Artistic Engraving here in Manassas, VA.  Keep up the good work.

Hi Steve,
Just wanted to let you know that my new air graver is up and  running; and how pleasantly impressed I am with it! I have the further great fortune to be booked into 3 days of one-on-one instruction with Mike Dubber!
Life is good!  Thanks again.

I thought you would like to see some of the work I've done with your foot control Classic AirGraver.  I incorporated the owners initials into branches on the buckle. The background is 24K inlayed wire. All work was done with your tools.

I find your AirGraver to be highly responsive and capable of very delicate work. I can't wait to get a PalmControl.
