Additional power if  needed

The AirGraver is also unique in that the speed and power increase proportionately.  This allows the benefit of increased speed to move a graver point through a cut when desired.   The end result is very transparent throttle response.

"A truly unique advance of engineering. The PalmControl AirGraver is a marvel of invention, and works flawlessly on the most delicate of engraved lines, and for deeper lines. All one needs is the slightest adjustment of palm pressure.  I heartily endorse this remarkable instrument." 
Robert Swartley, Napa CA

"My new PalmControl Air Graver has served me well during the Christmas rush.  I must have cut 5,000 letters, monograms and associated decorative scrolls and borders over the past month....everything from large signet rings to delicate hollow pieces like bangle bracelets and lockets that were the thickness of foil - to delicate antique watch cases, and more.  I've made the transition from foot power to PalmPower and now find it to be entirely natural with absolute control - I no longer have the subconscious need to press the pedal!"
 Mike Dubber, Evansville, IN
