This is by far our most popular kit. Most of you have a shop all set up with Electric tools. the Air tools require a special set up in your shop and this kit come LOADED with all you need to be up and running within minutes. The tool, regulator, & variable speed foot pedal are all connected for you, so you can just connect to your compressor and you are ready to begin creating some very detailed art in eggs, glass, wood, metal, gourds to name just a few.
BELOW IS A LISTING OF ALL THE GREAT SUPPLIES INCLUDED IN THE DELUXE KIT:
- ** Don't miss the special we have on this Kit - see all information at bottom of this listing of supplies **
- Introduction/Set Up video: Learn complete SET UP of your new equi9pment in this video + watch some actual carving and engraving in, Glass, Wood and goose Egg, demonstrating how easy it is to create some beautiful, detailed art in almost any surface. At the end of the introduction is the full SET UP; we take you step by step through the set up of your equipment when you receive you kit and how to maintain your equipment. A good video to keep around for future reference.
- Shofu Tool: The all metal Shofu Oil Free hand piece has a two bearing air driven turbine. It is designed to be used 8 hours a day 5 days a week. All parts in the Shofu are replaceable or rebuildable. The Shofu hand piece while quiet and powerful has a lightweight well balanced construction for maximum hand comfort. 90 DAY WARRANTY ON TOOL.
- Pressure Regulator: Air filter/pressure regulator with moisture trap, to deliver clean, moisture free, pressure=controlled air to the turbine. Regulates from 0 to 123 labs. of pressure. It takes a maximum of 150 psi on the inlet side.
- Variable Speed Foot Pedal: The foot pedal is awesome for detailed carving. It allows you to vary the amount of air getting to the turbine so it will turn slow in very delicate areas or fast for normal engraving/carving, without having to change the pressure regulator.
- Applique Film: A paper-like sheet that has a backing that can be pealed off, leaving a thin sheet of Mylar that is sticky on the back. you can photo copy or print your art onto the film, peal the back off and stick the front with the art onto the surface you are carving/engraving. NOTE: we carry an applique film designed for use in Ink Jet printers, Laser printers or Photo copy Machines. deluxe Kit includes (25) sheets.
- Bits: The bits included in the kit (48) in total are the ones that I have used the most over my years of carving/engraving. they include: diamonds, carbides and green stones. I use a few other bits, but these are by far the most popular.
- Bit Caddy: This wood caddy, with hinged lid and latch, holds 72 bits. It is labeled for the 48 bits that come with the kit. the rest of the caddy is blank to hold extra bits of differing sizes that you can label. The Kit comes with 21 carbide bits, 7 different sizes (3) of each size, 21 Diamond Bits, 7 different sizes (3) of each size, and 6 Green Stones 3 different sizes, (2) of each for a total of 48. We ONLY carry HIgh Grade Dental Bits that we highly recommend for the Shofu Lab Air-Z.
- Clip Art: The art included in the kit is copyright free and is art that we have used over the years. Approximately 75 pieces of clip art to get you started.
- Bit Cleaner: This is an awesome tool for cleaning any and all bits. You simply put the bit in the hand piece, run the hand piece at a slow speed and hold the bit against the brush. It is by far the best tool I have found for cleaning bits.
- Particulate Respirator: We include the type of respirator that has the exhaust valve on it so you do not fog your glasses. It is very important to wear some type of respirator when carving/engraving because the particles being created are very small and tend to float in the air.
- Safety Glasses: These safety glasses are very comfortable. You should always wear eye protection when engraving/carving.
- Owners Manual: The owners manual has some instructions for carving/engraving, maintenance tips, bit identification, applique film instruction and a catalog. In the catalog the list of bits includes good uses for each size.
- Regulator Stand: Our stand is made of solid poplar with holes in the top to hold the bits you are using for your current project. It has a moisture resistant finish.
- Gun Stock Carving Book: Whether you ever touch a gun stock this book has 100's of photo's showing you exactly how to do carving in wood. It includes fish scale, basket weave, scroll work, and animals. it has many pieces of art in the back that are ready to copy of print onto the applique film for carving.
- Carrying Case: This is an awesome water resistant case that all of your equipment will fit into. And it has extra compartments to hold the incidentals such as pens, pencils, scissors and other items you may want to carry with you.
As you begin using the High Speed air equipment there are a lot of new techniques you are learning. many people choose to take one of our classes to give them a jump start. we realize that in these economic times, traveling to take a class is not a possibility. So we started making some very in depth, classroom detailed videos. We have done very close up filming of Carl carving and engraving to ensure you see exactly what is being done and taught. These truly are classroom perfect & as you watch a certain technique being taught, you can replay it over and over until you feel confident to go to your workshop and create a very beautiful piece of art.
