Default NeJe Laser Engraving

I think I am finally getting the hang of this NeJe engraver, they are finiky little buggers.

I have no experience with them, so my comments are as a non-user - the etching looks very clean to me. Very nice.

They're very finicky, but once you get them dialed in, the amount of detail possible gets big reviews from the clients.

Now that I'm getting a bit familiar with them, I'd like to move up to one that'll accept vector and layered images, with halftone and grayscale imaging. If anyone has any ideas about those machines I'd like to hear your suggestions.

Excellent Laser Embossing, Lin.
Looks like you have it "Hook, Line and Sinker".
I have to spend some more time on mine, mainly with getting the .jpeg, right from the source image.
Congratulations,
Brian.

Do you burn the image before you assemble the pen?

Short answer is yes

If interested here is a video from the creator, Michael Shortness, of one of the rotary jig that shows the process.

Not sure what the OP used. There are other jigs but essentially the same process
