These styli are meant for embossing on Polycarbonate or Petg plastic.
They are available in long or short shanks.

Fidelity-wise, they are a very good mid-point between lo-fi tungsten and high fidelity diamond cutting styli. They have much more clarity and high end and a very low noise floor when compared to tungsten styli, but they don't require heat or vacuum, and are less expensive for the hi-fi diamond styli.
Your results will vary depending on equipment and experience, but we typically get at least 200-300 7" sides at least out of each one. Once the needle starts to get noisy after typical use, you can rotate the stylus in the head a couple times to get new, quiet faces.
Needles can be resharpened for $35 each. We can also sharpen your old, chipped sapphire cutting styli for $40. Please contact lathecuts//at//yahoo//dawt///cawm for questions.
