Default Any advice or videos of Palm Control use for jewelry (pave/bright cut)?

Hi,
I dont own a PC yet but thinking of buying one mainly for jewelry bright cut/pave stone setting work. Do any of you use your PC for this task? Any video links showing this work with PC? I mainly see engraving work with the PC and wondering how suitable it is for stone setting purposes. I'm a beginner and would prefer setting the engraver to very slow speeds when cutting close to stones or bright cutting borders. Can the PC do that or will it feel like driving a Corvette at the slightest push?

Cheers

Hi Allen, The PC is easier for beginners to get the hang of, but once you are good with the pedal it is six of one and half dozen of the other. A foot control Classic is later upgradeable to a Classic PalmControl. There are jewelers using both setups. The PalmControl is more intuitive to hand engraving. If spending long hours a the bench the PalmControl feels less confining in that your foot isn't involved. Otherwise the nice thing with the PalmControl is that it more intuitive and you don't need to coordinate foot movement with every cut. Doesn't sound like much but it is one less thing to do. Here is a thread search:
