Default PalmControl AirGraver Video- Mike Dubber

Mike made a super video about how to hold and engrave a large object while engraving it. He is engraving a tray with a large script letter, with the PalmControl AirGraver. The video is split into two parts. First part he lays out the letter and second part he engraves it.

Wow this is cool, what you say Steve a super video.
Thank you so much Mike to spend your time on showing and telling us these very interesting things.
Not only about the engraving but also about your turntable.
It's really informative to see so close how your professionals doing their job.

Mike,
Welcome to YouTube, Very nice video!!! Like the turntable and adding the thrust bearing. Bar Matt works great as an alternative to a towel, non slip and still protects fragile objects.

Thanks for showing and taking the time.

Thanks for the kind comments! Please uderstand that I know much more about hand engraving than I do producing videos!

I acted as my own Director and camera operator, so there are many areas of the video that could have been edited out in favor of a shorter and more direct lesson. I went on to finish the letter by adding wriggle cuts and making it match the first tray exactly...but there was simply not enough time to squeeze the entire lesson into You Tube.

Thanks to Steve Lindsay this little video appears here and on the "Tube."

Mike

Hi Mike,
You really did a great job here, great instruction and great video, it was really informative and I really appreciate your effort.
I was, however, really looking forward to the part where you did the wriggling. I wanted to see how you varied the width of the wriggling to fit in the script lines. I do a lot of western engraving which uses wriggling for the spines of the scrolls, but there the width is constant.

I simply placed the wriggle cuts side-by-side to fill in the open space. I hope to produce the video to a higher level and include more abut the wriggle cuts. It was an important step to finishing the impact of the letter, so it's unfortunate that it was left out.

Mike…I agree with the many who are thankful for the video instruction. I have my first set of hand gravers, and the least expensive of all I can start with. Watching the video is an encouragement and inspirational as I practice. By the way, I am an Evansville native and brother in law of Lance Embry, whom I know you know and have worked with. Thanks again!

Hi Mike,

Thank you for the videos,the two parts were great to watch and also learn.
You did the sketching with the left hand and cut it using the right hand,that's an awesome ambidextrous ability you have.Not many people can do that.

Thank You!

I spent as much time checking out all the fun stuff on your bench as I did watching process. It seems like the tool count amongst craftsman is usually comparable. For the engraver it all fits on a bench. For woodworker or machinist it takes a large shop to have the needed space for the tools.

It takes a lot of time too put together even a simple video and posting it for all to see. Until your paid better take compfort in thought that your work is appreciated by 100 folks for every one that post a comment.

And Thank You Steve for a great forum.

Respectively,

John

Mike's instruction is always to the point and thorough.

JP, the video does not even begin to show the extent of Mike's tools. It shows only 10% or 15% of the bench space in one of his two studios. Mike has all the tools and can use, and teach the use of, all of them
