Default Still going strong!

Just an update.
Steve tells me that my PC is now over two years old! Well, it's still running as good as the day I bought it....Simons is too

With the work i'm doing, ie. Mostly deep scroll and heavy carving, I work most of the time with the piston (Tungsten) at full stroke and with around 80psi.
This is for about seven hours a day, 5.5 days a week, so if there's anything to go wrong, it would have happened by now. I think good design and great manufacturing quality is to blame

Oh!...and it also saves me a lot of time and stress over H&C.

Thanks Steve!

Phil

I shan't live long enough to put that much work on my classic so I obviously have nothing to worry about. It is a great tool and so easy on these old hands.

Good comments Phil!

I'm happy to see that my prediction back then was right.

While you were already so good it couldn't make you a better engraver, it has allowed you to be a faster engraver so we get to see more great projects like your Ryder Cup gun.

This machine was made like in the old days, to last forever
And it seems like the design worked even better. Cleaning after a long time did not even give me any colour on the cotton swab since I use my new compressor. The old one must have bee the one putting some lightest of gray in the airgraver.
