The Dremel Engraver In Use

The Dremel Engraver is a reciprocating engraver which uses high-speed up and down movement. It's ideal for engraving ceramic, glass, metal, plastic, and wood, or security-marking tools and equipment.

The Dremel Engraver has a soft-grip body for extra comfort and control during extended precision use. The CE-marked high-speed motor delivers up to 6000 strokes per minute and the rotary dial sets five engraving depth positions, from fine lines to deep grooves. There's a separate on-off switch.

The Dremel Engraver comes with a replaceable 9924 carbide point and a letter and number template to get you started. It's rated at 230V 0.20A, has a 1.60m cable, measures 190mm x 48mm x 42mm, and weighs just 300gm.

There are lots of things to engrave, for example: jewellery, watches, keepsakes, gifts, dog tags, tools, and equipment. A small engraved security mark identifies anything after theft, especially as it's almost impossible to remove or disguise and, unlike a label, can't be picked off.

It's not a rotary engraver. A rotary engraver uses high-speed circular movement, which is harder to control and can skid off the surface and leave an unwanted mark.

Take care opening the retail packing as the separate engraving tip is fixed to the inside: don't throw it away by mistake.

If you've never done engraving before, practice on a piece of soft metal or plastic, moving the tip slower than you would for handwriting. If you're engraving something valuable, plan carefully what you're going to do.

Security identification marks don't need to be complicated: if you don't want to use your initials, you could combine two or three shapes from the supplied stencil.
