Engrave for Protection Against Theft

About Dremel: A History of Brilliance and Innovation
Founded in 1932 in Racine, Wisconsin, Dremel is the industry leader in rotary tools. The company owes its success to the inventive genius of its founder and namesake, Albert J. Dremel. In his lifetime, Mr. Dremel owned 55 patents on a wide range of products from electric erasers to a gas-powered rotary lawn mower. His most famous and important invention was a high-speed rotary tool, dubbed the Dremel Moto-Tool. Compact, lightweight, and perfect for a wide range of jobs, the rotary tool was an immediate hit with hobbyists and eventually became accepted as one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. Today, the Dremel name remains synonymous with utility, durability, and innovation.

What's in the Box
Engraver tool, letter and number template, and 9924 carbide point

The versatile, easy-grip 290-01 lets you decorate and label a wide range of material, from tough metal to delicate glass.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I was upset after receiving the engraver. I did buy this on Amazon only because it shows in the photo there is an “extra bit.” 1 in the engraver and the 2nd next to it. Even reading the description it doesn’t clearly state that there is one or 2. I mean this is an engraver and the only way to use it, is with a bit, otherwise you won’t be engraving anything. So why put in the listing that you’re getting a bit with the engraver .... like it’s something special!? I mean is Dremel really going to sell just the engraver with NO bit!?

Anyway the engraver works well for the money but the on/off switch feels cheap like it’ll break if you don’t baby it. Also at times when you go to turn it off the switch doesn’t click into the off position even though it’s off. Be sure to listen and/or feel for the click when shutting off.

I have an older model that was made in the early 70’s that is very well built to last and still works great and will no doubt last another 40+ years! This new one has a more hand friendly grip to it but is definitely made out of cheaper material that probably won’t last 40+ years. I know most things we buy today are just throw aways when something breaks and that is mainly because they don’t make replacement parts or the replacement parts cost almost as much as the tool itself.

I upload some pictures but Amazon likes to take them down and you'll have to click on my other reviews to see the pictures

The carbide tip is held in the chuck with a small set screw. The chuck is low quality aluminum and the set screw tore out the threads of the chunk before it even started to tighten down.

Engraver works just fine for the price. The letter and number template included with the engraver is useless due to the fact the slots are too small for the engraver to penetrate to the surface.
