I used a "Personalizer Plus" for many years, and found it to be an excellent machine.

I've used the Etch-O-Matic for over 10 years and have been very pleased with it. The real secret to any of these machines is the quality of your stencils. Either buy or make some high quality stencils and any of the machines sold by the various knife supply houses will make an excellent mark with it.....

I used one for a few months before making an etcher. It didn't work as well for me, but I think the etching solution was old.

I am a Etch-O-Matic dealer and was having problems with my etch until some nice people helped me out. It is in the stencil and technique. The etch-o-matic can make beautiful marks if you know how to use it. I would recommend the super unit because it has more power but the starter kit will do the same thing just takes a little longer on the etch.

I can save you money on a unit if you want one. I am only a dealer to get my supplies and eqipment at a savings and help out friends.
Shoot me a email and I will get you the best price.
thanks,

I have use the Personalizer for several years. You need to find out how long to hold it on the stencil. And like what was said good stenciles are a must.
