Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value Smooth operation, comfortable grip, good balance - easy to use, better than another model by a leading retailer that costs more! August 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Engraver speed I purchased this to be able to engrave glass. I am sure the more I use the tool the better I will get. I tried to engrave glass and it seems the speed is too fast. But it seemed to me to be too fast. I am sure as said I will get better but would like to see more different tips available beside the one supplied and the ability to purchase the diamond head one. I have used Dremel tools for many years and the quality of them has always been very good. I would recommend this tool July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Satisfied Customer!!! Thank you Dremel!! Great product, great quality and great value. the ONLY problem I have is, that I don't know which Dremel product to purchase next. Keep up the great work Dremel!!! May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT for US Navy Aviation Tool Control I bought 4 of these to replace broken or worn etchers for a US Navy Aviation Squadron.Great for high usage etching of tools and material for US Navy command that has to etch everything for tool control & tracking of equipment.Only problem, is the screw holding the tip comes loose over time & causes a FOD issue (Foreign Object Debris) if it falls out & is unaccounted for. In an aviation environment, we cannot afford to lose any part of tools and/or equipment. Including metal particles or chips/dust.Going to order the Diamond Tip (PN 9299) to see what the difference is compared to the normal tip that comes with it. May 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great engraver does the job great engraved all my tools and moreworks better than described and the tip never came out even after 2.5 hrs of use March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and affordable I used this to engrave on my valuables in case they are stolen to prove they are mine. Although I've mostly engraved on hard plastics, I used the diamond bit for engraving on aluminum and steel. If you use it properly, you can engrave just as clean and neat as you would with a pen. I haven't put it to heavy use, but it is durable so far as I can tell. I also tried an engraving tip for rotary dremels on a rotary dremel, and this was far better than any engraving that can be done on a rotary dremel. It is well worth the little extra space and cost. February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 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 4 out of 5 by Good solid engraver for the price!!! I've had this for a month or so and I love it and recommend it highly!!! February 5, 2015
