Glendo, LLC

From its origins in 1965 at the hands of Donald A. Glaser, Glendo has created a series of tools designed for the Jewelry and Engraving arts. When Don created the unique technology, it revolutionized hand engraving by using air powered tools with innovative design and world class technology to allow jewelers and artisans to engrave metals, set gemstones, and carve fine woods and scrimshaw. The tools allow the artist to work with less fatigue. Using Glendo technology allows them put their energy into the creative process, saving time and making each project less complicated.

Based in Emporia, Kansas, DJ Glaser (Don’s son), Kim Pember and the entire Glendo Team continue to design and manufacture innovative new products and supplies that are sold to Professionals and beginners world-wide. Combined with advanced machining capability and tight Quality Control, the dozens of tools manufactured have an international following.
