Being a hobby engraver and retired at that I just can't see the expense of his palm engraver setup. I guess when it arrives I'll give it a road test. In the mean time has anyone else used one of these gravers?

John, my first Lindsay was an Artisan I think it's similar to the Bench Jewel. When I bought a classic I thought about selling the artisan instead I set it up on the other side of my bench to do gold setting. Long way of saying you can't go wrong with the Lindsay.
Good luck and show us your work,Leland

My classic and classic palm control, are over 10 years old and run with no problems. Enjoy the journey this craft is a marathon not a sprint
Also clean dry air is mandatory, again clean dry air,no water,no oil.
Hey Dave, Big here. Clean dry air? The air compressor? And why is that? What are the effects if u use the other? Just curious.

You need a oil coalescing filter if your compressor is oil lubed, also a moisture filter/trap, if you are in very humid area maybe more than one moisture filter.
Also drain your compressor , so what will happen your tool will not work right and may be damaged. So again clean dry air, is extremely important.

I recently purchased a compressor from Harbor Freight. It is oil-less and has plenty of capacity one tool at a time, O ya, it didn't break the bank either.
