(It’s been on my wish list a while now!)

I wanted to ask if there’s anyone in the Notts/Derby UK area with a PalmControl I could come and see, and the other question is can you give me any recommendation on what compressor would be best please for indoor/home use. I was looking at the Bambi silent models, but have seen some mixed reviews on them.

Thank you : - )

Good Afternoon Annie,
I have been using a double piston air brush compressor so far it has worked well with a classic airgraver.Bambi looks better but I cant say ?
A Palm control is a very good air graver no doubt for work on s / silver.I have used a classic on precious,semi precious metals and even on brass steel and stainless steel too no problems.

But tell us more about your type of work which you wish to use the palm control for ?
