Default NitroG20 startup

Hi group,
I'm brand new to the forum. I'm putting together a shopping list and need a little advice choosing what I need to get started. I have a gravers ball, but when it comes to the rest, I'm lost. I was wondering if the NitroB20 would be ok to start out with? I plan to be working on firearms (case harden). I am a retired High School Metal Shop Teacher. If anyone can get me headed in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Hi Bob, I would recommend the Classic over the Nitro for gun engraving. The Classic has a stroke adjustment on it whereas the Nitro doesn't. The Nitro is good for deep/large motorcycle engraving but it is harder to get super fine detail compared to the Classic. I would also recommend a tungsten piston with the Classic. The weight of the tungsten piston in the Classic is more than the standard piston and can be taken up to 80psi if the additional power is needed. There is a three week money back return/trial time to make sure people are happy with whichever Airgraver they pick.
