There are two accessories, the replaceable engraving tips. They are the #9924 carbide tip and #9929 diamond tip. The accessories that fit in the Dremel rotary tools will not work in this tool.
The carbide point will work well for general purpose engraving in most materials. If you have an application that will require continuous work or is in much more brittle material like glass, the diamond tip is designed to handle harder loads for a longer time. It will provide the same cut but will withstand harder materials and/or longer use on ordinary materials. The diamond tip is not suitable for engraving on steel.
There is a little screw on the side of the tool where the point meets the housing of the tool. By loosening that screw it is very easy to replace the tip.
