This is a VERY big deal. Whether or not you wear glasses for vision correction, you MUST have glasses on all the time the drill is running to protect against engraving dust and particles possibly hitting your eyes. If you’re under 30, you probably need little, if any, magnification. If over 30, you need to try on some non-prescription glasses at CVS or Walgreens. Find a pair that will allow you to see great detail. I’ve worn 4 power since I was 40...and still do. You won’t find the 4 power in drugstores if that’s what you want. If you can read tiny print with a pair with a power of 3 or 3.25, they usually have those. More powerful ones must come from an optical store or non-prescription vision center.
NOTE: When you're shopping for the glasses, see if the magnification is adequate for you to see great detail with your eyes about 12 inches from the table. If you look across the room, DO NOT look through the lenses. All will be a blur. Look OVER the top of the glasses when you're not engraving....or take them off.
