Engrave It Pro Review
Looking for a gadget/tool to put your initials or name on your personal items? Engrave It Pro could be the answer, but read this review to the end to learn more how it works and it features.
What is Engrave It Pro?
To put it simply, ‘Engrave It Pro’ is a pen-like tool which could be used to make creative designs by engraving on any surface including glass, leather, plastic, metal, and wood – that’s at least what the seller company behind it claims.
It could be used for many purposes such as customizing different stuff and tools in your home, such as your power tools, keys, personal items, glasses, mugs, and so on.
How it works?
Just take the tool in your hand like a standard pen and start writing – or in this case – engraving on different surfaces, for example a glass.
When you toggle the tiny budget on the tool the tiny tip – which is diamond infused, according to the company – starts to vibrate quickly making it ready for engraving on a surface.
Please note that this pen operates using two batteries (AA), which you have to buy separately as they don’t come with Engrave It Pro tool.
