Hi everyone, anyone got any pointers as to what bit I should be using to engrave aluminium on my mini mill plus anywhere to buy them in the UK?
carbide spot drills work great for shallow depth engraving

60 deg half round tools with a conical grind work great in Al. you can make verry fine lines and use lots of different text styles while working in a small area.
rich cree, you might find engraving tools under "single lip cutters" like the half rounds mentioned above.
