Very nice! You're making me impatient to start prepping myself... care to share some information about your set-up, and where you got it?

Cheers :)

I'm using a 24 litre compressor from sgs engineering. ƒâ€š‚£105 delivered to your door including a 6 piece tool selection. In hindsight I should have gone for the 50 litre, but due to current space and money I had to go with the 24. It copes fine, just would have been better with the 50.

The pen is an ARO style pen from All Air Products in America. It cost ƒâ€š‚£90 total including an extended stylus and shipping.

The air die grinder is from eBay. It's the same model everyone sells.

Cheers Adam - lovely results. I've been holding back for a Ken Mannion kit, but the cost always seems slightly out of my reach (and it's recently gone up, making it very hard for me to justify). You seem to get great results with your kit, so I think it might be something I should start with, and then if justified, I can upgrade.

Max of 4 hours to this point? Maybe another 30 mins to finish?
