Quick Change Extensions


Lindsay Quick Change extension for Classic and PalmControl® Classic handpieces

 


Available with Single and Quad Indexing

Single indexing assures quick change to same oriantation each time.  Quad indexing allows four choices of orination of the collet and therefore the graver you are using. 

These quick change extensions won't wear out.  They are made from 440C stainless and hardened to 60 Rockwell.  60 Rockwell is as hard as a high speed steel graver and therefore these QC extensions are made for a life time of service. They are detented for a snap in fit utilizing the internal O-ring in the nose of the AirGraver® handpieces. They extend a graver 5/8".

NitroG20™ AirGraver®
For deep engraving as used in
Motorcycle and Heavier Western Engravings


More information about NitroG20, click here 

The NitroG20 will work with either a foot control or with a PalmControl® handle. It has a larger and longer internal bore and piston than the Classic or Artisan handpieces.  The NitroG20 comes standard with a heavy 20gram Tungsten piston. Price of the handpiece and tungsten piston is $1295. CFM air volume requirement to run the tools is 0.9 CFM at 70 to 110PSI.  The Supersilent 20-A compressor is too small.  The Supersilent 50-TC is large enough though as it outputs 2.0CFM at 84PSI to 114PSI.  Other compressors that can out put at least .90CFM at 80PSI should work fine with the tool.  The tool can also be run with a CO2 regulator either in a foot control setup or PalmControl® setup. 

The NitroG20 is included with one presharpened HSS, and three HSS graver blanks, handpiece tubing wrenches and an owners manual.  With maximum power of a Carbalt graver is not recommend because the Nitro can snap them in two. 

Note from Steve: I usually recommend the Classic with a tungsten piston, unless the person is only doing heavy engraving all the time..i.e. car or motorcycle parts then I recommend the Nitro.   The reason is that the Classic is easier to do detail work with but since the stroke is adjustable, it can be setup for harder hitting.. making it like a number of handpieces in one.   Later if needed the Nitro could be purchased for an a second handpiece.   The Classic with the tungsten piston can be taken up to 80 psi.  Also set at a long or short stroke or somewhere in between.

Recommended operating PSI for the NitroG20 is 70 to 110 PSI.  See below about upgrading your air regulator gauge and/or CO2 regulator.

REGULATORS FOR PALMCONTROLS

 
Click photos to enlarge

We sell a CO2 regulator, however we do not sell the C02 cylinders or cartridges themselves.  The paintball cylinders are refillable.  For this you will need to find a local store in your area that will refill them.  Sporting goods stores that sell paintball guns may be a source.  We have found $3-$4 is the going rate for refilling. We have also found that for a weekend of engraving at a show we use about a bottle a day of the 20oz paintball cylinders. The 20oz bottles can be purchased empty at Amazon.com or locally at a store that sells paintball guns.  Amazon also has the 16gram small cartage sold in packs. Here is an Amazon search for them. The 16 gram cartridges are not refillable.  A bicycle shop may also carry the 16 gram cartridge to refill  bicycle tires.  Businesses that sell pellet guns often also carry the cartridges. 

Note: It is not recommended to power the Nitro-G20 with CO2 as its use drains cylinders quickly. An air compressor is best for the Nitro-G20 for that reason. 

Co2 Regulator for powering a PalmControl®

How long a CO2 cartridge or paintball cylinder will last powering a Classic PalmControl can vary depending on what you are doing.  ie cutting normal depth or heavy depth cuts.  There is a thread on the engraving forum about the amount of CFM volume the AirGraver uses at this link.  Generally the 567 gram (20 oz) cylinder last around 8 hours and a 16 gram cylinder 20 minutes

The CO2 regulator fits right on the 20oz (567gram) CO2 paintball cylinders. No adapter is needed.  Includes the quick release fitting for attaching a PalmControl handpiece tubing to it. $83

When the adapter pictured below is screwed into the C02 regulator it will also work with the piercing type 16 gram threaded neck cartridges.    It has a probe in it that does the piercing.  $78
