  1. Cards on the table I don't know much of anything about air tools. I have had a CP9361 scribe for a while which came with a type M air fitting. I was recently gifted a new Fossil Shack scribe that came with a type Q air fitting. Is there a universal quick connect that can work with both or a splitter I could put on the compressor with both types of connections. I have tried talking to a couple of local warehouse store workers about it to no avail so I figured I would take a shot and ask here. Top is from the CP9361, bottom is from fossil shack. I could replace the fitting on the C
  2. I don't know if this has been addressed, but do you want to prepare fossil WITHOUT an airscribe or compressor? The Dremel 290 is bulky but there is an alternative: CH Hanson 50002. It acts like a mini jackhammer instead of rotating like most other rotary engravers on market. You can get 3600-7200 SPM (Stroke Per Minute). You can control the speed, and power by turning the knobs on the top. Super easy to use and I use it to prepare fish fossil. The stylus has a really small point too with diameter stylus 1/1/6" or .062 in and can be easily changed. So you if you want to prepare fish fossil
  3. My daughter and I do most of our collecting around the Whitby area where we mostly collect ammonite nodules with high iron content, making them very hard. I have tried prepping them with a Dremel rotary tool and while it often works quite well around the outer whorls it barely scratches the centre. I’d like to step up to using an air pen or similar but it looks a heck of a jump in terms of cost. Initial research looks like it’s going to cost £400-500. Is this a realistic estimate for entry level, but decent equipment? I wouldn’t want to throw a couple of hundred at poor quality gear

    Fossil Preperation Help?

    So I had previously bought an electric diamond tip Dremel but I want to upgrade to a faster way to break off matrix because at this rate fossils are taking me 8+ hours for a mediocre job. I am now looking seriously into air scribes because their efficiency and ease on my hands and time. So I have a budget of around 400$ (total for the airscribe and compressor) I was looking into the Chicago pneumatic CP9361 which is 260$ on amazon but its from Hungary and the reviews say sometimes it doesn't work. And I saw another for 900$. So I am confused on how much this should cost. If I a

    I know little about compressors and I am thinking of putting a compressor in an unheated garage. Is that an issue? Winter temps in there could be minus 25-30 F. Also, is distance from the compressor to the work area a problem? Mike

    Fossil-Hounds Fossil Prep

    FYI @DevonianDigger @JamesAndTheFossilPeach @Kane @Malcolmt @caldigger @RJB @Ptychodus04 @Fossildude19 @FossilSloth @FossilDudeCO I need your guy's input as I go along! I'm a green horn! Thank you in advance. Well since some of you who I know have started your own fossil preparation threads I thought I'd do the same. A lot has transpired since, well Saturday morning. I went all chips in and bought a really nice two stage, 60 gallon Kobalt air compressor. You don't want to know the cost. My jaw dropped when the cashier rang up the total but I had no other choice. I was all in at thi

    Compressor for prep?!

    Well this year I've started collecting items to begin preparing crabs and trilobites. Obviously the crab nodules are a bit tougher than the trilobites so I'll need to take that into consideration. I recently purchased a CP9361 for a pretty good deal and also have a decent microscope with 20x magnification. I'll build an air cabinet for micro blasting later and then pickup a medium hopper and micro sand blaster for trilobites eventually but I'm going to start off preparing crab nodules which is why I went for the CP9361. Also probably going to pickup a long 2" tungsten point tip for the CP9361

    Pen not starting?

    Yesterday i did some maintenance on my tool. I opened my TT pen and added some oil and cleaned the inside and tip. Today when i plugged it in, it started at first then after 30 seconds just blows air and doesnt boot up or make any noise i've opened and closed it afew times but still nothing, any ideas? Thanks, Liam

    Christmas in June

    Christmas came today in the form of a free compressed air filter and desiccant rig. I just need to mount it and replace the desiccant insert. Woohoo! No more clumpy abrasives.

    New Harbor Freight Air Compressor

    Just got an email from Harbor Freight about a new compressor they have introduced. It’s only 8 gallons so it might be too small for a scribe, but I think would be okay for an air eraser like the Paasche AECR (as long as you keep it set to 50psi or less). It is oil free but claims to be quieter than other oil free compressors. At $115 on sale it might even be in my price range. Anyone already have one or have thoughts about it? Here is the link: https://www.harborfreight.com/8-gallon-15-HP-150-PSI-Oil-Free-Portable-Air-Compressor-64294.html?ccdenc=eyJjb2RlIjoiMTIxNTkwNjAiLCJza3UiOiI2N

    Ready to start...

    Right... bought my ST pen few months back, got my compressor today (50l) going to order my water trap soon, got hoses too, got a build up of large Ammonites and bone concretions that need to be prepped, will start off with a few practice Ammonites then move onto bigger things, any hints n tips for first time set ups and prep ? Cheers.
  12. My air abrader got stuffed up over 2 weeks ago, so I sent it off for repairs and I've been twiddling my thumbs ever since wondering what to do with myself It turned out that the real culprit was my compressor, which I had just had repaired a few months ago. This time it was leaking oil into the air system, thereby causing difficulties with the other tools. Fortunately it didn't bother the air pens much, but the abrader needed a complete overhaul and I've been forced to replace the compressor completely this time. I finally got everything put back together yesterday and made a dry run tod

    Compressor box

    Afternoon folks Well finally moved into the new house with a brick shed/garage (aka my new workshop) yay! What I need to do is soundproof the compressor so to reduce the noise levels a bit as it will be in there with me, no real option to move it outside etc. I have been looking at numerous options and I need some advise on what is best, I have a load of mdf from an old wardrobe and was thinking of boxing it in with this then adding thick foam boarding to help reduce the noise. I know I need to look at ventilation etc in boxing it in. Or the other option I was looking at was making
  14. Hey all, I made my own topic so as not to hijack longbow.1's. My goal is to silence my portable compressor, which I use anywhere there's an outlet (to the annoyance of everyone nearby). The intake turns out to be a 3/4" diameter piece of pvc held in place by a rubber gasket. I'm thinking of using 3 pieces of 3/4 inch steel pipe with two elbows and welding a moped muffler I've got in the shop to the end. this would produce the "circuitous path" Ptychodus04 recommended in addition to the muffler. I'm planning to have the muffler end up over the shield and in
