    Razer Tip SK Wood Burner

    I decided to get into mini campfires

    I bought this Razer Tip wood burner from Lee Valley, to embellish my wood turnings. Last week, I saw Eli Avisera again, and some of this work has been embellished with wood burning, simple and certainly effective.

    I got a few extra tips with it as well.

    Boy does this thing light up in a jiffy and gives nice consistent heat too.

    A very cool tool for sure.

    Cheers!

    Congrats Stu, looks like you've mastered a few burns too.

    Can you use a straight edge with it?

    Dunno, I guess so, it would have to be steel, not plastic....

    Just wondered how you got some of those straight lines. I cannot draw freehand worth a darn.

    It did get me thinking about getting a wood burner to at least sign some of the things I make.

    So, like words spelled out in Cursive script? Not curse words, right?

    Your printing side showed out Larry, I'd like to see some serifs and gothic words as well.

    I've toying with the idea of getting a branding iron to mark my work, but if writing with this tool is that easy, I may get one of those instead so I could sign my projects

    So Stu, I look forward to see and update with your progress and trials with it!
    Thanks for posting it and congratulations!
    Best regards,
    Toni

    This has got me to thinking. Wood burning tools and soldering irons 'look' a lot a like. I've got a real nice Well digital soldering station where you can just dial in the temperature you want.

    Problem is I can't find any woodburning tips for it. So I went ahead and ordered a bunch of soldering tips for. There are some 'knife tips', so I'm thinking I might be able to grind/sharpen those up to be suitable for doing some woodburning.

    I mainly want to be able to use it to sign my work. So we'll see how it goes!
