steel turning tools work well for a lot of applications. But when I absolutely
need a razor-sharp edge and want to reduce the risk of a catch, as when turning

primarily in shared maker spaces. Though I’ve wanted to expand my experience,
the high price point and space requirements of an engraver always kept me from
doing so. Enter the LaserPecker 2 – a portable, desktop-sized engraver!
