Engraved River Stones

There are all kinds of engraving machines for sale.  You will find laser engravers that barely scratch the surface and others that can cut deep enough to create engraved pocket stones.  There are also Dremel machines that cut into wood, plastics and soft metal.  They are great for engraving personal electronic to make them less likely to be stolen.

If you want to do precision engraving, it should not be done free hand.  You will need a device which sets up the work using a computer chip.  Most lasers are great for that.  Diamond tipped engraving tools are a must for engraving hard surfaces like precious stones, granite and other stones.  Monument makers often use a sandblasting technique for best results on new and already installed cemetery markers. If you need tools to engrave stones as a hobby, you can find laser engravers for less than a thousand dollars.
