Standard Conical & Profiler Engraving Tools - Engraver Types for Cutting Edge Sharpness
The Standard Conical Engraving Tool and Profiler Engraving Tools are available in two styles.
The sharpness and design of the tools cutting edge or how keen the cutting edge is has an effect on the appearance of the engraved line. Too sharp of a cutting edge causes the cutting edge to break down quickly.
2L Produces our Standard Conical and Profiler Engraving Tools in two "Engraver Types" for optimum performance.
Choose the Engraver Type based on the material being engraved.
Engraver Type G: for Harder Materials
G - For Harder Materials and most general purpose engraving. Engrave Steel, Metals, Stainless Steel, Wood, and more.
Engraver Type S: for Softer Materials
S - For Softer Materials. Engrave soft, or gummy materials. Softer Aluminum, Anodized Aluminum, Brass, Bronze, Plastic, Acrylic, Silver, and more. This style tool is designed with sharper clearance angles to cut softer/gummy materials to reduce the chance of burring.
If the material being engraved is extremely soft, gummy, and prone to creating burrs, use the Softer Material Cutter (S).
