"The tap removing and end mill [Armor Mill A-250x2.0-.250-.8] worked perfectly! I pecked at the tap and blew out chips until I reached the bottom and even though I knew to stop just shy of the very bottom to save the end mill from breaking, I broke the mill. But the good news is I saved the threads and part."  - October, 2014

"This is the prototype.  We used the Spring Loaded Engraving Tool and Standard Conical Tool Bit for Softer Materials on an Anodized Aluminum Pen." - September - 2014

"I just wanted to say Thank You!  You all are so awesome to order from....simply incredible....bordering on ridiculously fast. I keep on telling others about your site. On a side note, a while back, I ordered a .0625 ball nose bit from you. I have been running that thing to death...well, trying to at least. I just finished a 6000 pass project on corian and the cuts look just as good as the first one. I have used it to engrave in oak, pine, maple, pecan, barn wood, cedar, and corian and it is simply amazing." - July 2013

"We got the tool and are very pleased so far with the results. The setup time we were experiencing in the past is now pretty much gone. Down from upwards of 30 minutes per unit. The detail the diamond bit is creating is incredible. Still experimenting on adjusting feed rates etc to get some more depth and will likely be ordering the 120 degree diamond bit and heavy spring shortly." - Feb 2012
 

"AM IN LOVE WITH YOUR TOOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP. I have already bragged to some of my buddies about your tools. Don't be surprised if you start shipping more into northeast Ohio." - November 2012
 

"I've been playing around with the [Spring Loaded Engraving Tool] since yesterday and all I can say and WOW ;o) ... I've been trying to engrave on my mill for months now. I've built special mounts and added high speed spindles, built my own Spring Loaded Engraving Tool on my lathe (quite proud of it, although it's nowhere as slick or effective as yours) - tried just about everything but have not been pleased with any. Best I got on any was doing drag engraving which never could get my correct depths. However, My very 1st attempt on this produced a beautiful engraving on my test piece. I just wish I'd ordered it sooner! I'm finally able to do what I've wanted to and have the confidence it's going to look professional. I know the software played a big part too as my current set up didn't allow for plunge or incremental steps during the engraving cycle.  Once again, Thank you for everything! Much appreciated!" - September 2011
 

"Thank you! Your product has kept our engravings looking perfect every time regardless of the exact height of the work piece surface. We have liked it so much we bought another for our tool and die machinist. The perfect tool [Spring Loaded Engraving Tool] for the job! " - March 2011


"The Spring Loaded Engraving Tool is performing EXCEPTIONALLY".  We are engraving 1018 carbon steel using the Spring Loaded Engraving Tool, Tough Tip Tool and a Medium Spring, running at the suggested 3000 RPM at 13ipm and are very pleased with how much time it is saving and the results are great." Tony - March 2010



"I just wanted to share with you what a huge time saver this is for us [Mini Spring Loaded Engraving Tool]. It only adds 20-30 seconds per part (depending on the amount of engraving) and the quality and accuracy is excellent. Before, we were laser etching them which added extra handling time, setup and fixturing, and consistent quality was always an issue."   "You guys made me look good to upper management!" - February, 2010



"This tool is the XXXXs!"
  "You have no idea how much time it [Spring Loaded Engraving Tool] has saved us in not having to reset and redo each part that is off a little" - January 2010



"You guys have a great product [Spring Loaded Engraving Tool] and your service is second to none. Everybody loves the look of the new engraving on our products". - May 2009



"We have seen a 5x increase in life [using Conical Ballnose Engraving Tool] and are running at 3x faster federate than the tools we were using before.   At the end of the week this week, we have 576 parts on one of your [Conical Ballnose] tools, with 2 lines of text, in 12l14 steel, where we were having trouble getting 100 parts with another tool. Keep in mind this is at 3x feed rate of the other tool. The tool still is cutting well, so we are leaving it in to see how long we can let it go. We are actually going to start using these engravers on some other parts we make as well, so I'll be placing another order in the not too distant future" - March 2009



"It [Spring Loaded Engraving Tool] worked great, thanks for the innovative tool. - March 2009



"Got the tool [Spring Loaded Engraving Tool] and did the job in time. I've immediately put it to use on a bunch of other projects. Instead of sending parts out to be laser marked I'm using the tool to do the marking here - it will pay for itself in just a few weeks".  Cary, Optical Structures - February 2009



"I haven't broken a tool since switching to your [Spring Loaded Engraving Tool] holder, we have done all of the engraving on hundreds of hydraulic manifolds with the tool that came in the holder." - June 2008

"Worked great" [Spring Loaded Engraving Tool] - June 2008



"The Engraver is a fantastic tool."
- January 2008



"I had the opportunity to run a test in aluminum with the Conical Ball Nose Engraving Tool. Again, I was a bit skeptical but now I am nothing but impressed. Previous run times with my old pyramidal engraving tool on one particular job was in excess of 30 minutes. I ran the same test with the conical ball nose and my run time was 4 minutes and 46 seconds. You might as well say 1/10 of the time was required. I could probably reduce that time even further but my machine was running at the maximum feed rate it was capable of. The tenfold increase in productivity will make a substantial impact in our shop throughput and bottom line. Thanks again for a great product & support."  LRM Technologies, LLC. - January 2008
