Fossil Shack Air Scribe

Has anyone used the Fossil Shack Air Scribe?  How does it compare to the Paleotools  Micro Jack line?

I have never used them but looking at their website, it appears to be an Aro clone. This is significantly more powerful than the Micro Jacks. It will also have much more slop than a Paleo Tools product. I would NOT use it for prepping GRF Split Fish specimens as they show on their site. It is way too aggressive for them.

 

I'm certainly not knocking the tool (I use an old Aro clone that I've had for almost 20 years) it just isn't in the same league. It is a good scribe to start with as it is a medium duty tool and will handle most prep work well. It won't remove bulk material quickly and it will obliterate delicate stuff but it will do well in the majority of cases.

Further information has been provided to me that will contradict some of my assumptions. Unknown to me, this is the product and design of our own wonderful @sseth. While this scribe in appearance is an Aro, in function it is much more. Seth was nice enough to provide me with some very useful technical specifications that I won't bore you with. But, this is the scribe he uses for his split fish prep in their quarry and I've seen some of that stuff he's done.

 

So, refining my very limited opinion to: I don't know enough about it to have an opinion but as soon as my wife forgets that I just bought a new scribe, I'll be ordering one to test and review!

If I stay off the radar for a while and do a bunch of prep work between purchases I’m usually safe!
