Answer: 
This is actually a hammer action tool, so grinding and polishing attachments will not work with this. It makes tiny indentations in a surface, which form lines. I use this in my granite engraving work. I'm not sure why this is listed as a rotary tool.

No. You need an air die grinder to do that. Rotary tools just don't have the power.

Answer: 
Only use the accessories provided, or the accessory that is specified as an alternate (diamond tip) for this specific tool. Any other accessories will either not fit or may cause damage to the tool which may then void the manufacturer's warranty.

This is not a rotary tool and therefore no other attachments can be used on it. Consider other "Dremel Rotary Tools" for that usage.

Answer: 
Yes it will. I suggest getting a template with the font(s) and/or design you wish to engrave, paste it on the tool on the location where you want to engrave, and then cautiously do your work. Afterwards you can remove the paper and glue with a simple adhesive remover or alcohol. Do this until you feel that you have become proficient with the tool and techniques. Good luck!

Answer: 
Hi Cancun, yes this tool will engrave on tools. If the surface of the tool is real hard, you might want to consider using a diamond point, part number 9929. This diamond point is for continuous or commercial use. This engraver will work on steel.

Answer: 
Yes it will. This is a vibrating engraver, so depending on the thickness of the acrylic you should not have any issues. I have used mine on very thin acrylic and did not have any problems. One hint I would give is make sure you have a smooth surface under your work to help prevent the possibility of cracking.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good tool for the price Finally got a chance to use my engraver and the only issue I have is the handle. It was mildly awkward to hold at times. Now keep in mind I have very large hands so that may have something to do with it. Overall I am happy with it. August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Engraver It is a very good engraver that comes with a letter templet to make your engravings look more professional. It also has a replaceable tip that means you don't have too buy a new unit when the tip wears out and makes it easier to sharpen the tip for longer life. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dremel Quality It worked flawlessly. I liked the little template that it came with. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Impressed Its a very handy tool. Iam very impressed it is to use. Job done.. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dremel Engraver Model 290-01 The engraver works for what it was purchased for. Basic engraving for inventory purposes. Good purchase for the money. July 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works Okay For Wood Engraving I think the quality and value of this tool is good as well as the value and being made by Dremel I was able to use some of my other tips in order to put a "signature" on my wood pieces. It might be me but I had a hard time with the engraving; much depends on the hardness of the wood but overall it only worked okay for me. I ended up purchasing a burn in signature stamp that works better than this tool for my purposes. Maybe I'll find another use down the road. I would recommend this for those who have a steady hand and a good deal of patience. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product This product id's easy to use and etches well. Wasn't expecting much for $20, but pleasantly surprised. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just What I Needed I bought this engraver as I had several items that I use at work that I wanted to be able to permanently mark. I have found that this engraver works great on a wide range of materials, it's easy to use and makes quick work of marking your items in a way that cannot be undone. The variable speed is nice feature too, depending on the material you are engraving. After having engraved probably at least 3 dozen items over the past month, I cannot recall any complaints or dislikes for this product. As it turns out, this quality engraver was just what I needed for the task. February 27, 2016
