Impact & Rotary - All In One ArtGraver  System
Lindsay Engraving System


The BenchJewel Rotary handpiece is slightly larger in diameter in order to accommodate the larger turbine, that provides more torque/power.  Size comparison is pictured below.

This disc pedal and rotary handpiece can be attached to the auxiliary port of the AirGraver regulator.

The BenchJewel Rotary holds the dental sized friction grip burs. The turbine in the handpiece is larger diameter than most dental type rotary tools such as NSK. Since the turbine is larger it has more leverage and provides greater torque/power.

Warning - always use the BenchJewel Rotary handpiece with a variable control pedal. Never operate a precision rotary tool attached to direct air pressure, or with a pedal that is only an on/off switch, and that is not variable.

Directions for attaching the BenchJewel to your foot controlled ArtGraver regulator.

1:
Pictured to the left are the items you would have received with your ArtGraver setup.
Referring to the green arrows. Remove the plug screw from the auxiliary port and insert the hose barb in its place.
 
2:
Push one end of the BenchJewel Rotary tubing to the black plastic hose barb on the Disc Pedal grey line.   The other grey line of the Disc Pedal you push on to the metal hose barb of the auxiliary port that you installed in step 1. 
If you have an older dual regulator setup here are the directions for attaching the BenchJewel Rotary to it. 

1:
For this setup you will need the two items that the green arrows are pointing to in the photo to the left.   They are:
Splitter $16.00 add_to_cart.gif
1/8" Hose barb $3.50  add_to_cart.gif
 

2:
On the right port of the regulator on the right unscrew the hose barb along with the line that is attached to it.   Screw in the splitter.  Now screw in both the new hose barb from step 1 into one port of the splitter and screw the hose barb with the line into the other port of the splitter.

Push one end of the BenchJewel Rotary tubing to the black plastic hose barb on the Disc Pedal grey line.   The other grey line of the Disc Pedal you push on to the metal hose barb on the splitter.   

The turbine bearings in the BenchJewel Rotary are traditional bearings that are more durable than oil less type bearings.  Traditional bearings require oil.   If you are working on a project and are working it hard it is recommended to give the bearings a drop or two of oil every few hours.  

Use the supplied oiler to deliver a drop or two of oil.  To do this:

1:Turn the ring to match the red dot on the body with the lubrication hole.  
 

2: Place a drop of oil by inserting the oil dispenser to the lubrication hole. 
 

3: Next rotate the ring to un-match the red dot on the body with the lubrication hole, and the tool is ready to go back to work. 

  Oil does come with the handpiece, however if you run low more can be purchased.   Use the this to refill the oil dispenser that came with hour handpiece.

To insert a bur.  Insert the shank of the bur in the nose hole.  Place supplied insert tool over the bur.  Use it to push the bur the rest of the way in. 

To removed a bur use the push plunger on the end of the handpiece to push the bur out. 

Be sure the shank of the bur is clean and rust free.  If there is corrosion  or damage to the shank of the bur do not insert it as it could damage griper in the handpiece.   

  Be aware that continuous hard side pressure on a bur without oiling every few hours will shorten the life of the turbine bearings.   Generally cutting background out as shown in the video above on this page by Steve Lindsay is considered fairly gentle use.  Be careful not to drop the handpiece.  If it were to land on the nose it could damage the \ bearings or collet nose, requiring the handpiece to be returned for repairs.
