The New GraverMach AT by SAM ALFANO 2009-07-30
I've been testing the new GRS GraverMach AT and thought I'd share my experience with this dual-mode system. It features conventional foot pedal engraving and Airtact palm operation in a single unit. Gone is the need for an outboard Airtact box!...

More Than Just a Colt .45 by D.J. GLASER 2008-02-01
This is an expensive book, yet it’s unlike any literary work on engraving in many significant ways. Some of you will immediately decide you should own it. Others may wonder if they should invest in one or not. If you aren’t sure, you should seriously consider buying one to avoid the possible regret when it is sold out....

A Beginner's Take on Airtact by RUSS SUTTON 2007-07-11

In the late 1970s I bought my first GRS tool . . . a Gravermeister. When GRS came out with the new GraverMax, I upgraded to it....

Airtact ‘Nirvana’ by MARCUS HUNT 2007-03-28
In mid-February this year (2007), I visited Alexandre Sidorov during a weekend open house event at his school in Antwerp, Belgium. Whilst there, I was able to play with a pre-production model of the new Airtact at my leisure. I was able to assess it freely and pass my comments, critique, and observations....
