Steve, I just had to write you this letter
telling you again, how much I enjoy engraving with your AirGraver. The
control of these great tools is well known to engravers that use your
equipment, but there is more to it then that. When I sit down to
engrave and pick up this beautiful tool, you just feel better that you are
using the best piece of equipment for the job at hand. My engraving,
and I am sure the engraving of other artists has improved using the "Lindsay
AirGraver". I use the "Chasing" and the "Classic", and have found that
with these two tools I can do just about every job that comes my way with
precise cuts and control. Working in soft gold, silver, brass and the
harder steels, the airgraver handle these metal with the greatest of ease.
Thanks again for your great service, and your contribution to the artists
Dear Steve, I've never taken the time to say
thank you for such a wonderful tool that you have provided to the trade.
Myself and my two sons Jason and Jared enjoy using it very much. Of course
they each have their own AirGraver. I have such a love for bright cutting
and use it all the time for this fine art. It so gracefully cuts through my
white gold and yellow gold and platinum plates so easily and so exacting
that I never cut off any prongs regardless how fine and tiny they are. I
have done bright cutting so fine that I've had to get a loop just to look at
the prongs and the fine diamond cuts between them and the stones, as with
the naked eye you could not see this fine of work. And to finish it all off
I put my millgrain tool in my airgraver and open the 3 holes on the side for
more power and WOW!!!!, what a beautiful finish on my customers piece. I
have customers (Jewelry Stores) that tell me that my bright cutting is the
best that they've ever seen. I can bright cut for hours and never will my
hands or fingers get tired. I use to get the conventional engravers so sharp
and shinney that I could easily cut my thumb or finely slice it so many
times that I couldn't feel it but I knew something was wrong as my thumb
felt mushy. Guess What? Not once with the airgraver have I sliced or cut any
fingers. Ha, Ha. What a relief for me. Our next venture is to go to a hand
engraving school for one week next spring so we can further expand our
skills and widen out in our trade. Thank you again for sharing your life
with all of us in this beautiful trade. Your friend,
As a beginning engraver I can honestly say that Steveís Classic Airgraver
is helping make me a better engraver. The Airgraverís adjustability is a big
advantage. It can go from ultra fine lines operating on a whisper of air to
hogging metal with the twist of the air adjustment ring. The tool operates
smoothly and precisely at all pressure settings and length of stroke
adjustments. It does all this in a small package and is very comfortable in
the hand. After 10 minutes of use I knew I chose the right tool. The
Airgraver is expertly machined and has a very high level of fit and finish.
Itís such a nice tool you donít want to put it down. Steveís attention to
detail shows in this tool. Also, the service I have received from Steve has
been nothing short of exceptional. I am a very satisfied customer and would
recommend the Airgraver to anyone without reservation.
I use the Lindsay Classic Air Graver to cut stainless etc.
in both guns and knives. The tool works like a dream. I use the Lindsay
carbalt gravers. It cuts through stainless easily. I have used the other
equipment before and it doesn't hold a candle to the Air Graver. The
sensitivity of the AirGraver can't be matched.
The AirGraver is in my opinion the best and I
have tried the others. I have not found anything I could not cut with my
Classic and Lindsay carbalt tools from the finest of lines to background
removal and inlaying precious metals all with one handpiece no problem. P.S.
Steve is wonderful for support and advise.
I have been using Steve's equipment ( the
classic ) for a long time now with out no problems . I do a lot of deep
relief engraving and gold inlaying in firearms. I am using the CLASSIC
air graver for everything. When I had the other co's equipment I
needed 3 different hand pieces.
