Reliable & Easy to UseJun 22, 2000
This engraver works incredibly well. Although it looks unweildy, its very easy to control and engrave clearly. In fact, my engravings turned out to look just like my handwriting. I've used it to engrave tools and other metal and steel products, and it has done it with ease. I've had one for several years now, and its still an excellent & reliable engraver.

pleasantly surprisedJan 03, 2004
I got this as a Christmas present, and just now used it for the first time to engrave my cellphone. I had been wondering how easy it would be to control, but am glad to report that the result was as small & legible as what can be achieved with pen and paper.

Great ToolJan 30, 2001
I bought this engraver with birthday money from a discount store last fall, after researching it online. It will leave its mark on just about anything you would want. I like the variable speed settings which allows you to match the work to the material. I have used it to initial all my tools so there is no mistaking who it belongs to. It works on hardened steel as well as plastic. My wife uses it for craft projects in her pre-school teaching job.

Great value in engraverFeb 22, 2007
By J. Donohue
My use for this is to "Sign" finished pieces of wood art. Other engravers I have had were clumsy to hold. This one is very good.

EngravingAug 20, 2009
The tool works fine. Note that the cutting tip is the important 'business end' of this tool. It is supplied with a general purpose point tip, great for writing your name on something. But you can put any tip in there you want--and it will make a difference. You can buy other Dremel tips or make your own. You can easily reshape the provided tip into a more traditional engraving style. By the way the packaging states that the tool is made by Bosch in Mexico for Dremel. It's a bit loud, pretty much like all electric engravers though. If you want depth to your engraving the tool can do it, you just have to repeatedly go over (and over, and over) your design. The variable stroke length does help but frankly doesn't make a large difference in most metals and you give up some tool control on the higher settings.
