    Scribe Comparison

    Ok preppers, specifically @Malcolmt @Ludwigia @jpc @RJB but generally to any professional or semiprofessional prepper lurking around these parts. Is there a scribe on the market comparable to the HW322, possibly one of the Paleo Tools Micro Jacks? There’s roughly a year long waitlist for the 322, and I don’t think I can wait a year for a new scribe.
  2. I recently acquired one of the Fossil Shack air scribes and have put it through some trials to see how it compares with my other scribes. This is a totally unbiased look at the tool’s abilities for prepping different kinds of matrices and accuracy. I ran it on harder 18” GRF and softer Sandwich Bed (aka Split Fish) material. It was designed for Sandwich Bed rock. It wants to operate at a lower pressure than my other scribes. At 90 psi, you barely turn it on and it screams. A separate pressure regulator is needed to keep from having to adjust your main pressure when work

    Air Scribes

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on 1. air scribes you’ve found are good for fossil prep, and 2. All the parts needed for Scribes. I’m not quite sure all the parts needed for a scribe, I know you need the scribe itself and an air compressor, but I don’t know beyond that. P.s; the fossils I’ll be working on will be Green River fish, for the most part.

    Sumake ST-909 air scribe

    So, I just got a "open box" Sumake ST-909 air scribe for 70% off from one of my vendors. It's shipping container and plastic storage box were crushed in transit, and the air line was damaged, but easily replaced. Was curious if any of you are familiar with this this one. I have never heard of them and a quick gander at the Warrior Woman site shows it to be one of the less expensive models on the market. A bit of web stalking and it looks to be a China-based firm that works with Lacme out of France and Shanghai for their pneumatics and compressors. (Odd, I seem to rememb

    Suitable scribe?

    Hi, sorry to bother you guys with another prep question but I recently saw this scribe and am wondering if it’s suitable for fossil prep. I think it’s the Gison GP940 and is labelled as suitable fossil prep by the seller. It has a stroke speed of 34000 bpm and I think it could be an ARO clone. Here it is https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gison-Air-Pneumatic-Engraving-Stylus/dp/B01N6793DP Thanks.

    All air products scribe

    Hello everyone, I’m looking to get into with All Air Products to try and purchase their 8315B scribe but I can’t seem to find their email. Does anyone who has made this purchase before know it and could tell me please? Thanks. http://www.allairproducts.com/products/specialty-tools/

    My first test prep

    I finished the dust collection system in my prep station this morning so I had to put the tools to use and start practicing! In a nutshell, I LOVE AIR TOOLS!! I picked out one of my random BOBs collected over the years from the South Dakota Hell Creek fm. Typical of my digs, this one had a lot of surface CA and matrix adhering to it, but it was about as clean as I could get it by hand.. I started out by cleaning half of it with just the soda blaster. You can see in the picture that it was doing a phenomenal job. I wanted to get a pic that showed the condition before I worked over the en

    My prep station

    OK, since someone asked me about the prep station I am finalizing, I took took some pics today. To begin, I am working with the available space I have in my shed. I know its tight, but it fits and I'm not cramped. The only downside is that I will have to wear headphones while working. I put a lot of time, research and planning to make the most of the parts I have. For anyone thinking about taking this step, plan out EVERYTHING and price it all out, then probably add another 10% margin. I went the absolute cut-rate version of a prep station and I still have almost $1000 invested. The bla

    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

    Ammonite prep

    Just finished up my first Ammonite prep. I had gotten a few of these from RJB a little while back, and finally getting around to them. I forgot to get a complete before photo, so here it is after some initial scribe work. Prepped with a CP-9361 and Aro scribes. Any constructive comments welcome too, this is the first ammonite I have ever prepped, three more to go so any pointers are welcome!

    Interesting Bug # 1

    Let's go on what may turn out to be an extended journey. It is my intention to try to take pictures ever few hours along the way while prepping this little guy. In a few minutes I will post a picture of an unprepared trilobite exactly as found with no preparation whatsoever. What is a bit exciting about this one is that it is actually my bug and eventually when finished I will actually get to keep it for my own collection. Unfortunately for me, most of the really nice bugs and crinoids I prep end up not being mine, but at least I get the chance to experience them and see them come alive in per

    Edestus Prep

    @DSMJake sent me this beautiful Edestus jaw to prep and I got the chance to work on it today. After a week of relaxing in the prep lab, chilling with the phytosaur, it came out of the box looking like this: To all appearances, it is simply covered in shale and the prep would require some simple abrasion. But as we all know, appearances aren’t everything! Under a good portion of the shale was a pile of pyritized shells! So, I abraided what I could and set to work with the Micro Jack. After the shells were gone, it went back into the cabinet for some more abrasive.

    The Agonizing Wait

    Why does time grind to a halt the moment you place an order for a new prep tool? In a moment of weakness, my wife agreed to me ordering a new Vaniman abrasive blaster and a Paleo Tools Super Jack scribe. Of course, I'm not waiting around for minds to change.
  15. I have been wanting a Micro Jack for a while. If anyone has one that they don't use, I would be interested in buying or trading for it. If not I will probably order one from PaleoTools soon. Thanks!

    Air scribe question

    I’m looking at getting my first Air scribe. There’s the obvious choice of Kens, although they are rather expensive, the second choice is the Chicago cp9361. It’s cheaper from a local tool supplier but wanting know if anybody uses it and can vouch for it, just don’t want to go spending without the information. Any help would be seriously appreciated. Thanks, Dan.

    Second air scribe

    I am considering adding a second airscibe. I have a chicago right now, but was wondering what a good option would be for detail work?

    Paleo Aro Repair

    One of my buddies I prep with has an old paleo aro tool that's ceased to function. Everything on the front end seems to be good, seal is in good condition, spring is good. Opened up the back end- the bronze shut off valve is in good condition, but is there supposed to be a spring there? I've tried both orientations of the shut off valve, and when I connect it to air pressure and turn in on it'll click once and then cease functioning. Asked him a few questions, he says he used some gun oil on it but there was no odd gunk. Any thoughts?
  19. Anecdotally, Einstein is credited with the following layman's explanation of Relativity: “When you sit with a nice girl for two hours you think it’s only a minute, but when you sit on a hot stove for a minute you think it’s two hours." The same applies to the purchase of a new scribe from Paleo Tools! I just ordered a new Micro Jack #4 and time instantly slowed down. I have needed a scribe for microscopic detail work for a while and finally got the CFO to approve the purchase. I'm sure it had a lot to do with me regularly complaining about how using an Aro under the scope is analo

    Post a pic of your work station

    I'm just curious to see what all your pros are working with. My station is pretty much complete, I have a limited area in south tampa. I've seen a lot of the air abrasion boxes, and I'm curious, what's the point? Why not just use a full face APR, gloves, and call it a day? Anyway, SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT!
  21. So I've never used an air scribe before. I've read everything in the forum about the cp9361, and I'll probably buy an Aro for detail work. But, the instructions that came with this thing suck, I can barely read them. Really my question is about oil. Where do I put the oil, how often, and what kind of oil do I use? Thanks in advance! -J
  22. Hi Everyone! I hope this finds everyone well and I love the new look! (thats how long Ive been gone) I was on here last year buggin everyone for tips on prepping and unfortunately, I work a job that does not allow me the time much time to prep during the summer, but I have been practicing a little here and there. I do have AWESOME NEWS! my amazing husband got me a CP9160!! (I actually squealed when i opened the box) I'm ready to hunker down with my magnifying light and prep! Here are 3 I have been practicing on, just getting the hang of the air scribe, and not blowing nacre to obli
