Topic tags/keywords: carving tool

Any advice on high speed carver/engravers would be appreciated. My love of carving is directed the most to eggs and small wood projects. I would love to find something that has the versatility to work with different products.
Thanks!

Are you talking the 40,000 RPM carvers or the even higher speed units?

I knew a gal who carved beautiful eggs. She used the ultra high speed units and said there was little or no friction. The wood carvers I know use the forty k units that run two to five hundred bucks, though some are more.

I don’t think I need more than the 40k unit. Right now I am using a flex shaft but there is too much vibration or catching so any extreme detail keeps getting broken off. I am okay with the price range I just don’t which one to purchase.

For one in the couple hundred dollar range, a couple of the guys have recommended the Mirco-Pro.

Thank you…. Kelly…. If anyone else has any advice I would love to hear it. $200. range is great but I am not opposed to going up to 6 to 800.00 for the right tool. And quality customer service.
