I want to engrave the names of my grandkids on some stools I am making, the letters I want about abut 2" high and perhaps 2/3mm deep. I was then going to paint the engraved letters and then varnish over the whole stool with Ronseal clear Ultra tough varnish.

Would this be any good for engraving? I get the impression it's more for something like dogs ID discs!

Or would you suggest something else?

It might seem a bit simple but it's a big project for me!

That's more a "vibrating-hard-point-damager" than an actual engraver; it will make/scratch/batter a line on a shiny piece of metal,
but won't do much else.

it's a descendant/spinoff of the old Burgess engravers.

A rotary tool (Dremel or router) with a 'V' cutter might serve you better, but most "proper" lettering in wood and stone is done by carving, which has been discussed before.
