Characteristics of the Various Angles of Diamond Drag Engraving Tools

THE SHARP ANGLES (90 and 100 degree diamonds)

The 90 degree diamond graver has the sharpest angle of the available engraving tools and was designed to product very fine lines , small and delicate engraving, and is the tool of choice for coated pens. It also provides additional reach around a small diameter curved piece such as a pen.

The 100 degree graver produces a slightly wider line, will not cut as deeply, and is a more heavy duty tool.

Some caution must be exercised when using the sharp angle tools. They should not be used for general use purpose engraving. The sharper allows the tool to cut deeper and pressure must be correspondingly adjusted. Deep cuts are not desirable as there is a tendency to build up a berm on the sides of the engraving lines. Damage to the work can also result.

THE STANDARD ANGLES (120 and 130 degree diamonds)

These are the workhorse angles and are designed for general purpose engraving. There is very little effective difference in the performance between the two. The 130 will cut a slightly wider path and somewhat less deep.

THE WIDER ANGLES (140 and 150 degree diamonds)

These engravers are for soft metals such as gold and pewter. They produce the widest lines and have the least tendency to dig into the soft material. Again there is little difference between the two angles. The 150 will cut a slightly wider line.
