Keith,

Thank you again for showing & letting me try your Classic airgraver, both the foot pedal and palm control. The sharpening demonstration was just what I needed to eliminate my concerns about being able to sharpen gravers. I also enjoyed learning about Hobo Nickels.

As you will recall, last evening, I was more suited to the foot pedal than the palm control. However, today I realized what I was doing wrong with the palm control. I was trying to get the tool started by squeezing between palm handle and graver. I should have used the graver contact with the practice plate to start the tool when I applied palm pressure to the handle.

I'm putting my order together. Once I get started engraving, I'm sure I'll be needing your help. It's good to have someone close by willing to help a beginner. I also want to learn more about engraving Hobo Nickels.

Thanks again ,
Bill in Oceanport
