Default PalmControl photos

The two Nitro and Classic PalmControls went out last week. The Classic PC with the knife picture was shot a few weeks ago.

Hi Steve,
These are absolutely beautiful photos. Over the last couple of years I have been trying to learn to take photos of my work and I can really appreciate photos with no reflections and no shadows.

Also, by the way, really beautiful tools and knife!!

I like the pattern and color of that one too.

Thanks Les.

Mo, It is a M42 ground with a 116 degree template but not tapered very much to leave it larger.

Hi Tom, Yes, it is a lock release. It is more like a wedge setup in it. The lock bar slides back and forth. The release button rolls to move the slide bar. It comes apart. Here is a photo of it disassembled. There are no holes drilled from the outside of the knife. It has blind T slots little holders with three 0-80 screws that come in from the side of the T slot that has a taper on it so that it pulls the two halves together. The set screws are accessed by reaching in from the bottom (into the blade opening). One side of the knife handle and the center portion of the knife (the back block, top block and blade bushing) are milled from one block and are one piece.

Before I drill the two holes in the back of the burl handles these handles will work to be used on the foot pedal AirGravers. If used on the foot pedal tool I epoxy a burl wood insert into the handle and then a rubber cap goes in there that is pushed over the body of the foot pedal AirGraver. If later you would like to use the same wood handle for the PalmControl we would need to get that wood insert out and then I would drill the holes in the back of the handle for working with a PC. I'm concerned though that we wouldn't be able to get the wood insert out if I epoxy it in. So maybe we could instead use shellac for glue. These way we could soak the handle in alcohol and it would dissolve the shellac and the insert would hopefully come out. If you think you may be interested in a handle for your foot pedal AirGraver but would later like to use the same one on a PC let me know and I see of the shellac idea works.

Here is a photo from the AirGraver site of the handle on a foot pedal Classic.

Yes, the handle to the left in the second photograph in this thread is still available. I'll put your name on it.

Tried to post this with TapaTalk last night but Steve was apparently still working on it - the interface went dead during the time I was typing.

Steve does have the SS handles for the Palm Control and you can pretty easily adapt them to the Classic. I'm betting you could use the same method for those lovely burl ones too Steve.

Get a rubber stopper - I think it's a #4 - and press it into the handle. Mark it and trim it to the actual height of the hole. Carefully drill an appropriate size hole (1/2"? I didn't have the exact size so I used the closest I had and Dremeled the hole out to size) into, but NOT through the stopper. You've now turned the stopper into a rubber cap over the end of the Classic (which seals the bore and makes it work) that fits tightly into the PC handle so you can use the graver. The holes for the PC can be in the handle without it being any problem.

Steve, Yes, the method works with SS handles as it does the burl ones.

Glad it arrived safe!

Good photos!
Did you figure the rubber cap ok? Push it on the body of the tool first and then the burl wood handle over it. I sent along an extra cap for you to have to work with.

thank you Steve for the extra cap! the airgraver is a great tool but with this handle look incredible better , i have feel a difference about the strokes with the new wood handle is it possible? or is just the change of the "sound" of the tool when arrive to me i was working in a fine shading and after the change i have feel a good difference in the control of the tool maybe was for the happines of the moment XD
every day i'm more happy whit my airgraver classic, thank you for this great tool Steve!
