Engraved tool head

Does anyone know if Dillon plans on engraving their 550C aluminum tool heads with the caliber on the front. I'm getting ready to purchase/upgrade to a 550c from a SDB and that looks really handy when dealing with multiple calibers.

If not how do most people mark tool heads when they are using multiple calibers. I wanted somthing that looks better than just using a sharpy.

RE: Engraved tool head

I use a label maker, affix the label to the front side where it can be read when on the machine. (650). I also had some 3D printed tool head holders made that hold the tool head with spots for the conversion parts needed with a smooth spot for a label as well. I have 11 of these mounted to the wall adjacent to the bench. Very neat and organized as I have bins mounted below with labels that contain caliber specific parts such as bullet puller collets, case gauges, shell holders. These also allow me to put rounds that need to be reworked at some point. (doesn't fall free from the gauge, upside down primers, bulged cases etc.)
