Does anyone use an air powered handpiece? Is there such a thing in
the world of jewelry? My old Craftsman has served me well for 20
years now and is ready to be retired. My husband has been suggesting
using air power for years. The air compressor is a behemoth that
stands over five feet tall so air power is accessible and plentiful.
I’ve looked at dental systems online but the burs are thinner (FG?)
and it strikes me it won’t accommodate regular diamond setting burs
with 3/32" shafts.
I like the idea of the air powered handpiece and would like to
explore that before buying the conventional Foredom that looks like
an IV next to the bench. (Mental vision of having it on an IV pole
and rolling it around! Uh-oh.)
(BTW, on another topic…after reading the thread over that last
few weeks on getting a sales tax cert, I did it! Man, they wasted no
time in getting it to me. Three days! I guess they figured anyone who
is WILLING to pay taxes!)
It’s warm today, about 70 with a slight breeze. Heading out to an art
fair in Safety Harbor, FL.
