Cordless Engraving Pen Review

RMC invited me to review their cordless engraving pen. RMC’s cordless engraving pen is powered by two AA batteries. It works by pressing a power button. The button activates the engraving bit. The rotating motion etches our your design. Here is a piece of art I made using RMC’s cordless engraving pen.

cordless engraving pen star art

I used a piece of wood purchased from the local craft store. I used a star stencil to pencil the design on to the wood. Then I used RMC’s cordless engraving pen to etch the design in to the wood. I painted the stars and then used the cordless engraving pen to further engrave the lighter stars again. I used a gloss varnish to complete the piece.

I enjoyed using RMC’s cordless engraving pen. Making this DIY wood art was fun and rewarding. I like the that engraving pen is cordless so I’m not limited or restrained by cords. I like the pen shape design and the ergonomic cut out for your thumb. I wish the motor was more powerful. It does engrave as deep as I would like and it’s easy to stop the motor from spinning. You have to hold the pen at an angle to operate it. I also wish there was an on/off switch instead of a compression button. An on/off switch would offer a wider range of potion and would have safer storage. As it is, I remove the batteries for safe storage.

I would recommend this for simple DIY projects which don’t need deep engravings. This would also be good for beginners. The low price point makes this a value DIY product. If you need a quick light engraving this is perfect.

Pros:
Fun
Easy to use
Attractive art work
Doesn’t drain batteries too quickly

Cons:
Low powered motor
Engravings aren’t very deep
No on/off switch; requires constant pressure to engage the power
