Most tombstones are engraved with CNC machines and while I have yet
to see a company advertise it as a competitive parameter, your vital
lack of stats will be engraved with better than 1/50mm precision.

On one picture I saw at cnczone.com they used approx 10 different
diamondcrusted bits.

Estimating bitcounts we find:

	X-axis		~30k	[60cm / 1/50mm]
	Y-axis		~30k	[60cm / 1/50mm]
	Z-axis		~5k	[10cm / 1/50mm]
	Toolholder	~10	[visual estimate]
	Total		~65k bits

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
