01. Compressed Air
GRS Air Systems require clean, dry air to power the handpiece.
There are two options for compressed air, the major difference of which are the audible levels. (The advantage of buying a compressor from GRS is it includes the necessary filters and hook-up kits to get you right to work!)
02. Air System
GRS Air Systems allow you to select the desired speed at which you want to cut, hammer, stipple, and more.
All GRS Air Systems come with a 2-year warranty.
GRS® Air Systems are an essential part of daily work for many engravers, stone setters, and other artisans all over the world.
Oil-free compressed air travels through the Air System, where it is harnessed and regulated to create the finest control. By setting the speed on the Air System, the user is able to work at a consistent speed while applying the power they require via the foot throttle or hand control. Air pulses then travel into the handpiece, where a spring, piston, and anvil deliver smooth strikes, transferring impact to the tool in the handpiece.
Handpieces are constructed out of high-quality stainless steel. They are very simple mechanisms with a spring, piston, and anvil. This makes for easy cleaning and maximized performance.
Standard style handpieces are operated by the foot throttle and are compatible with the GraverMax or GraverSmith. The Airtact® or AT-style handpieces only work with the GraverMach AT system and offer the option to be operated by the foot throttle or hand control.
Workholding is one of the most vital tools at the bench.
It is responsible for keeping your work piece in place, free of vibration and movement.
GRS vises are always machined in the USA to provide you with the best, most durable block. Robust bearing systems and precision machining creating smooth rotation and less vibration. There are a variety of size options by weight and height.
Properly sharpened gravers are imperative to your success cutting metal.
The GRS GraverHone® system enables fast shaping, sharpening, and polishing of tools.
The GraverHone is variable speed and features high torque from an American-made motor. The GRS Apex® sharpening fixture is a beginner-friendly way to create repeatable results. The Dual Angle fixture is a classic staple in the industry, with the ability to create any graver you wish.
Having the proper graver for the job is a vital step toward successful hand engraving and stone setting.
GRS gravers are available in a variety of alloys to fit your projects.
We also offer a wide variety of graver shapes. To help cut down on the overwhelming number of options, we have put together some simple kits to help you get started cutting.
Nothing compares to seeing and working on a project up close.
GRS offers microscopes and stands, Optivisors, and loupes made for hand engraving and stone setting.
The Acrobat stand was designed specifically for engravers and stone setters. Other stands have been adapted from the electronics industry, but can provide a suitable option for holding the microscope.
08. Work Surface
A sturdy work surface is very helpful for ergonomics and stability. Depending on your vise choice, this is where your vise will sit.
The Satellite System has a turntable built-in and is great for working at most heights.
It can be utilized for microscope use or other magnification choices. The block shelves are an economical choice that mounts to the front of the bench.
09. Additional Options
This is an important but often overlooked area for your bench setup.
From equipment to help you work faster and smarter to customizable work holding, you’ll want to consider tools to make the challenge easier.
Thermo-Loc, ID Ring Holders, and micromotors are just a few examples. These products can be found throughout the website.
