Drag Engraving and Scribing Using a 2L Spring Loaded Engraving Tool

Scribe, Etch and Drag Engrave With a Spring Loaded Engraving Tool, Diamond Tip Tools and Carbide Point Scribe Tools


2L Spring Loaded Engraving Tools are used for rotary engraving, as well as drag engraving (also know as scratch engraving or scribing).

Most often drag or scratch engraving applications use a Diamond Tip Tool Bit, or a Carbide Point Engraving Tool Bit. Both of these tools will produce a shallow, thin, fine line on practically any material. Use of these tool bits are especially effective for fine and delicate engraving, and engraving of small letters.

The Diamond Tip Tool and the Carbide Point Tool can both be dragged as well as rotated in the Spring Loaded Engraving Tool. Dragging or rotating produce slightly different aesthetic engraving results.
