@samantha-ocon I am sorry I can’t offer any help along those lines. I don’t use this type of equipment as it isn’t generally needed for most fossils around here. “hard core” people who do lots of this type of work are the ones who use these. If you do get one of these remember that you still need a strong suction device pulling away the material so you don’t breath the fines. These fines can cause lung damage even many years in the future.
Don’t ignore his advice on the dust. Safety glasses as well. Cheap air scribes are available, but the metal used in the tip may not have the best metallurgy.
