Dear Steve, Last week Tina Chisena was up here and she brought her beloved PalmControl AirGraver along
to share. I've only had a few hours of actual engraving time with a different tool under Brian Marshall's tutorial eyeball. But when I settled down at my
bench with your PalmControl and a #7 Optivisor, I was reminded in a very profound way what tool "transparency" really means: the tool is so effortlessly
integrated into your hand and mind that there is nearly perfect flow from your will into the world.
Sincerely, and with the greatest respect for your work,
I have put my new Classic through the works, and wish to be articulate enough to put in words my appreciation for this
tool. It has improved my ability by simply having more control. Of course now with perfect hindsight, I should have owned one of these years ago. Promise to sing
praises to anyone who engraves.
Steve, Hope all is well and hope you're not too swamped with the engraving life! I'm still using the Chasing and probably
have about 450 hours on it now. Not a single problem with it. One of the most satisfying pieces of equipment I have ever bought.
Steve, I am very impressed with the quality of the AirGraver. Of course I wouldn't expect less from an artist with your
skill. I tried the heavier work, as you suggested, and it performed as well on that as it did on the finest work. Thanks again, and if there is anyway I can help
you I will, as I think we should support the ones that sacrifice to offer quality to their fellow man. After all, how can we better serve than to give the best we
have to give at our own sacrifice. I truly believe that this is a worthy pursuit and I will try to maintain it. This philosophy has cost me dearly however, and I am
sure that it has cost you too, but as I said, how better can you love your fellow man?
Steve, This AirGraver cuts stainless steel like butter. Here is a Kious and Osborne folder I engraved not
long ago. I used the Chasing AirGraver for both jobs. I left the cuts bright. Lucie Krulickova drew the designs.
Steve, Thanks for making such a great tool. After two weeks I can't imagine working without it. It truly has been a
transformative experience having it.
