Higgy,
I too did the research a few months ago and purchased Steve's Classic AirGraver after struggling with the "non-powered" option for months. You are going to love what you get from Steve! - truly amazing workmanship put into his products and they're really fun to use. The hardest part of the purchase for me was waiting for the Classic to show up at the door.
I am now looking at Scopes as well. The Donegan optivisor I'm using needs an upgrade.
Let us know what you decide on.
Michael

Mine was hand-carried in & declared to HMCE (as was). They decided that it didn't have an appropriate import duty category and billed for VAT only.
