Diamond Drag Engraver Instructions
To use, install into a 1/2″ collect or end mill holder in your machine spindle.
Engage the diamond tip to the material and then move the spindle an additional 1/8″ closer to the material. Doing so compresses the preload spring ensuring the diamond tip is in constant contact with the surface being engraved.
Be sure to retract your tool fully between moves so as not to engrave unwanted surfaces.
Feedrates can exceed 100ipm with excellent results.
Next run your CNC engraving program with the spindle off.Tips
Because the diamond tip is telescoping uneven surfaces are evenly engraved eliminating faded characters or over engraved characters.
We recommend the stiff spring for metals and hard plastics and the soft spring for glass like materials and a starting compression of 1/8″.
The engraving groove width/depth can be tailored by simply changing the amount of tip compression and spring stiffness or both.
