SoftIdle handle works with most all Lindsay handpieces. The
BankNote handle is only for Lindsay Classic handpiecs.
SoftIdle® Stainless Handle
Enjoy less vibration and recoil with your handpiece as well as
improved idle. Metal handles we had available for approx 18
years for the tools. Since the newest development of the
BankNote switch handle that does even more to improve the Classic
described below we went ahead made a run of more of of these less
expensive SoftIdle handles. The SoftIdle handle fits
current engraved ArtGraver handpieces as well as earlier unengraved AirGraver handpieces, providing improved idle and
increased impact power.
SoftIdle® Stainless Handle $64
See below information about installing the handle
Lindsay BankNote® Mode Handle for Classic
The novel, patent pending Banknote™ Mode can be turned on/off.
It enhances low end control of impacts of the handpiece that make
shading and bulino line work more controllable. In OFF
position it is similar to the SoftIdle handle sold above. With the
switch in the ON position it improves idle even more as well as
alter the impact characteristics, that are more forgiving
particularly at the low end. Of course it can be shut off
for heavier work.
Lindsay Banknote® Handle for Classic
only (Preorder) $349
If you'd like to install this on an older Classic it is
recommended that you return the handpiece to us so that a location
dimple made for securing the BankNote handle on you Classic.
Use the above button to order the handle and then send your
Classic in. No extra cost except for FedEx return shipping.
When we have your Classic fit with the handle and ready we send a
PayPal request for FedEx return, minus if the button above charges
for USPS. See below for information about
the BankNote handle.
Installing and removing SoftIdle® handle, and BankNote® handle
On current Lindsay foot control handpiece there is a dimple on
the body for the SoftIdle® and BankNote® handle screw to align to
and secure the handle on. The screw does not need to be super
tight, but snug. Align the handle so that the screw will go
into the dimple when tightened.
If your hand piece does not have a dimple, align the flat of the
handle so it is parallel with the hose barb and tighten up the screw
there. It is recommended that you return your handpiece so a dimple can be
placed on it. The dimple does help secure the handle as well as
align it. There is no charge for adding the dimple, except for FedEx
return shipping. If you are placing a new order for a
handle and would like the dimple added to your handpiece, simply
write us a note during checkout in the space provided for notes that
you will be sending your handpiece in for the dimple. We can
then wait for your handpiece, add the dimple and install the handle
for you and return your handpiece.
