Default Classic or BenchJewel?

I cannot decide which to get. I had a classic about 10 years ago and sold it as I didnít take the time to learn to use it mostly because of work time constraints. Noe I work for myself and Im ready to take it up again. I make turkey and game calls and want to engrave round tubing ferrules of brass and nickel silver from 7/16Ē up to 3/4Ē. I will also use it to do some engraving in hard exotic woods. Initially I figured I would get the BenchJewel but now Iím wondering if I will miss the adjustability of the classic if I go with the BenchJewel. It seems the BenchJewel can be adjusted via the psi gauge since it doesn't have the collar with the air holes that the classic has. Iím ready to order but keep going back and forth between the two.

Thanks, Seth

Good choice, The Classic is very versatile. With the tungsten piston it will cut deep and fast with the right pressure and setting. With the light piston, it will do very detailed work.
I have not tried a Bench-Jewel but I am very pleased with my Classic. The only one I might trade it for would be a palm control.
