The Official Online Newspaper of NAHB
I got tired of mixing up my cordless batteries and tools on the job site with those belonging to the rest of the crew, so I bought an engraving bit for my Dremel tool to mark them.
But my penmanship is terrible and I figured it would be worse with the Dremel.
So, instead of using the Dremel, I printed out address labels with my name on them, stuck them on the tools and used them as lettering guides.
This turned out really well — and looks more like a logo than a bunch of scratches.
A larger-size type works better.
Light pressure makes a thin line for the thinner parts of the font; heavier pressure makes a thicker line.
