Our NP Fossil Preparation Pen is extensively remanufactured by us with the addition of several new components based around a generic engraver design, These considerable modifications, many not immediately obvious enable finer precision work and greatly prolong the tools working life and smoothness,

Quiet and easy to operate with a frugal air consumption and a finely adjustable air flow, the NP has remained an enduringly popular pen for many years, especially with Universities and Museums for "gentler" micro work or in a more sedate non workshop type environment, or on smaller specimens and delicate matrixes
