Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product has great features As a custom leather craftsman i have been using Dremel Engravers for over 15 years. Recently we decided to replace one of the older tools. I ordered one from The Home Depot. It came in very good time and was put to work on arrival. The difference between this new tool and the others was amazing! QUIET,POWERFUL, WELL BALANCED, AND GOOD LOOKING. I will be replacing my other 3 Dremel's sooner than I need to. July 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great engraver does the job great engraved all my tools and more works better than described and the tip never came out even after 2.5 hrs of use March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use! The 290-01 is easy to use, it is well balanced and the depth of vibration can be adjusted. After a little practice the results were outstanding. It replaced a thirty year old engraver that I could no longer buy tips for. February 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by fell apart before I even got the tip in! I bought it took it home and found I needed the smallest screwdriver know to man to install the bit. I had to file down one to make it work. As I unscrewed the tiny screw it went flying and the whole thing fell apart. I now have to make another trip back to home depot to return it and either get my money back or try it again...What a ridiculous way to make the tip changes. What kind of idiot designed this!!?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works good We use it to mark fire department equipment. A little noisy. March 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use this is an excellent tool. It's very ease to use and is lighter than the previous engraver I had. January 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy I needed a tool to put serial numbers, weight, and my makers mark on parts I make for rapiers. I had been using a pneumatic grinder but no available burr was small enough to do the job well. The "engraver" (it's not, really, but that's the subject for another essay) does these tasks nicely. It's controlable and easy to use. For the uninitiated it could take some practice to get the fine control down but it does what it's supposed to do. Home Depot had it at the best price I could find online. January 31, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! This is perfect for engraving personalized metal name tags. When you buy it, make sure you find the 'bit' that comes with it. I almost threw mine away, because it's in the clear plastic cover that is holding the engraver...hard to see, but it's there. I'm sure some people have thrown it away accidentally, because another reviewer said they didn't get one. I also ordered the Model 9929 Dremel Diamond Point (for 290). February 18, 2014
