Deep engraving on stainless steel would require a more powerful mill like the MDX-540 series, the other machines wouldn't handle it. For all the other gift items you mention I would look at the metazaseries as it it is a lot faster to print than engrave.

Hi everyone,
I’m also looking to buy a desktop engraver that can produce the effect on the attached photo. It would be narrow gauge dibond aluminium with with black plastic adhered to the back, so would only need to milk the front plate. If the same machine could cut timber shapes that would be a benefit but not essential. A better quality second hand machine would be preferable as it would be all about the quality of finish. The plates would need to be about 300x300x5mm.
Thanks in advance.
