TURBO CARVER II
Incredibly smooth and as easy to use as a pencil, Turbo
Carver II, gives you the power to create beautifully detailed
engravings and relief carvings in Wood, Glass, Bone, Stone,
Paper, Leather, Hard Metals, Eggs, Antler, Gems, and the
like. If you can trace a line, using our stencil systems,
training video and the ultra high speed hand piece you can
create beautiful engravings and carvings with your first
We are certain you will be delighted with
the Turbo Carver II and offer you

Slow speed rotary tools operate on high torque (power) and
low revolutions. Ultra High Speed tools on the other hand,
operate at extremely high rotational speed, 450,000 RPM (called
angular velocity) but with very little torque. That is why
Turbo Carver II is so easy to control even on the hardest
of materials. You can carve across the grain, with the grain,
through a knot hole, and even into the end grain of a piece
of wood, without reacting to, or following the grain. You
can engrave or carve with the ease of a pencil on the hardest
of materials. You can engrave a piece of blown glass, then
drill a hole through it without breaking the glass. You can
use it like you would use a knife to cut intricately fine
filigree patterns in paper, leather, gasket and other materials.
All slow speed rotary carving tools operate at low speed
due to their motor bulk, friction or field switching restrictions.
Slow speed hand pieces use 1/8 inch diameter burs while ultra
high speed instruments use 1/16 inch diameter dental burs.
The slow speed hand piece is very good at doing bulk or gross
reduction where detail and precision is not a consideration.
For engraving, doing fine details or carving in things like
knot holes, end grain of wood or cork, nothing can beat an
ultra high speed instrument.
Ultra high speed hand pieces have a light weight turbine
with a diameter of less than 1/4 inch. Therefore compressed
gas can spin these turbines at very high speeds exceeding
450,000 RPM. On the other hand, there is hardly any torque
produced by these instruments, hence the ability to carve
in extremely fine detail. The principal behind ultra high
speed instruments is angular velocity, not torque. The advantage
of these instruments lies in their phenomenal ability to
precisely remove material, without stressing what you are
Turbo Carver II only uses 1/16 inch diameter cutting bits
Grip Dental burs. These burs are available in Carbide,
Diamond, Stone and Rubber. We stock about 30 of the most
appropriate burs used for engraving and carving.
Turbo Carver II weighs only 1/2 ounce. It can be used by
people with arthritis and other joint maladies because there's
no weight, vibration or torque transmitted to the handle.
If you accidentally drop a metal hand piece, there is a good
chance you will destroy the bearings or break the bur. Turbo
Carver II is so light, it resists breakage if you drop it
on the floor.
Because Turbo Carver II is made from precision injection
molded plastic it could be designed small and simple. It
has been said and demonstrated that simplicity is elegant.
Small size also increases your visibility and improves
access in hard to reach areas.
is the only instrument with a comfortable textured rubber
grip. Turbo Carver II is not affected by moisture, a serious
problem for metal instruments. Hand pieces with aluminum
handles are very susceptible to oxidation from moisture
coming through the air lines. Oxidation is what sand paper
is made from and it will destroy the bearings if it forms
within the hand piece. For this reason, metal hand pieces
require an expensive moisture trap installed in the air
line. Unfortunately, the moisture trap will not prevent
water from getting into the hand piece while working with
water as needed for hard materials.
This is the only hand piece available on the market with an optional Water
Mist Spray. This atomized cloud of water eliminates 95% of the fine dust
and fumes associated with carving in materials like bone, egg, glass, gemstones,
eggshell, antler. It also keeps the bur cool for longer life and prevents any
kind of fracturing of the material being carved. Creating a finer cut and strengthening
porous materials is another advantage of this technology.

Advantages over the competition.
unique design incorporates a comfortable textured rubber
grip. The design also allows you to loop the tool over
your finger, should you need both hands free.
Dirty drive air is the cause of many bearing failures.
Turbo Carver II comes with a 5 micron in-line with the
foot control air filter, which removes any oxides or minute
particles that get through the main filter.
Carver II incorporates a miniature in-line air pressure
gauge. This gauge is used to determine with more accuracy,
the optimum setting on your air compressor regulator. Too
little pressure and you won't get good results, too much
and you risk destroying the hand piece. You can not rely
on the gauge on the compressor because vibration and age
reduce their accuracy. Also, pressure is lost in the tubing
that goes between the regulator and hand piece. As much
as 1 PSI can be lost per linear foot of tubing.
Carver II comes with a variable foot control, an expensive
option with the competition.
All ultra high speed air-driven hand pieces have an inherent
problem. They draw contamination into the front bearing
whenever you operate the instrument. The effect is called
Carman Street Vortex and is a leading cause for bearing
failure. This means when the drive air to the turbine is
shut off, it takes several seconds for the turbine to spin
down. During this time the turbine becomes a vacuum pump
and pulls airborne contamination into the bearings.
Carver II has solved this problem with a patented pinched
valve/air regulator mounted on the exhaust port. This regulator
maintains positive pressure within the turbine housing
during shut down, thus preventing a vacuum from forming.
Once the hand piece is turned off and set down, the one-way
valve closes shut thus preventing dirt from entering through
the exhaust port.
The second cause for bearing failure is heat buildup in
the rear bearing. During operation air passes through the
front bearing because of the path available around the
spindle. However, there is not enough pressure within the
turbine housing to get a good air flow around the rear
bearing. The pinched valve on Turbo Carver II increases
the operational pressure within the turbine housing. This
increased pressure makes it possible to create an air flow
around the rear bearing.
The third reason for bearing failure is caused by the
lubrication process. Manual and automatic lubrication is
an imprecise procedure and too much oil is as bad as too
little. Also, no matter how careful one is it is inevitable
that dirt is going to be introduced during lubrication.
Turbo Carver II uses the most advanced bearing technology
available to eliminate the need for external lubrication.
The bearings used in this instrument are Lubricated For
Life and because of this the bearings will last much longer.
We have recently increased the warranty on the bearings
from 3 to 6 months and additional testing will probably
increase the warranty to 1 year in the near future.
Turbo Carver II operates
at 450,000 RPM making it the fastest in the world.
The faster this type instrument turns, the better it works.
Our instrument is the only one that will operate on both
compressor air or as an option, bottled CO2. CO2 has
the advantage of being less expensive than an air compressor,
weighs less and is therefore easier to haul around. CO2
does not require electricity and is totally quiet. This
makes it easy to work in remote locations or places where
power is not available; it's ideal for trade shows.
