    Default Foot pedal or hand actuated?

    If you're a power user, have you made the switch to a hand actuated handpiece?

    Sam,

    I made the switch to the Lindsay PalmControl some time back and have never looked back. I would say it is one of the best investments in my tool collection.

    Lindsay PC is a big investment, but if you consider the overall cost of setting up GRS equiptment, it is also a big investment...
    To have both setups has been a blessing...
    The PC with the tungston piston is one bad machine, it should have a name...
    If not for GRS and their school and equiptment I probility would have never gone this far into engraving...
    GRS make great equiptment and the engraving community owes them many thanks...
    I use the Gravemax for stippling and very little else...
