Sounded like a contradiction when someone sent me a link to this tool, but it looks very interesting, at least for larger scales.

Took me a minute to figure out how it worked. Pretty neat. I think it would be a bit tough on metal though. Engraving would be neat, but how small will it engrave to. Time find the specs and price. I wouldn't get one. A neat tool though for the wood worker.

This tool is intended for 1:1 woodworkers. I'm not sure it is accurate enough for model building where some of the milling cutters make dental cutters look crude.
