    Branding Iron Step-by-step

    This video takes you through the entire process I used for creating my first branding iron. I did a couple test cuts in Aluminum, which you can see here:



    This time I walk through the entire process from CAD for drawing out the design I want through CAM to setup the toolpaths all the way into actually making the part. Hopefully this video will be of some interest to anyone looking to create their own branding irons.

    Thanks for watching!

    Very cool Jason! I don't use mine all that often, but nice to know I could make my own brands for it.
