Spring Selection For Spring Loaded Engraving Tools™

Spring Selection


Springs for the Spring Loaded Engraving Tool A light tension spring is included with each Spring Loaded Engraving Toolholder.

This is best spring for use on the widest variety of materials. It will produce a fine engraved line on aluminum, brass, plastics, and other materials. It is ideal for engraving colored anodized aluminum to reveal the base metal color.

Harder materials such as steel generally engrave well with the standard light force spring. However, if you require a deeper more distinct mark, a spring with more force to produce the desired engraving may be necessary.

If a stronger spring is desired, start with the medium spring and engrave some test marks to determine if the marks are acceptable.

Move to stronger springs if required. With springs other than the standard light force spring it may be necessary to use engraving bits with wider tip widths to prevent the tips from breaking. Multiple passes may also be used to increase the depth of engraving.
