I have a few projects that I want to Woodburn. I already have a tool that I bought long ago as a woodburner. Even from the start it took a long time to burn a line, even with plenty of heating time. I think it started life as a soldering iron, and was labeled a burning tool to make more sales.
I've been looking at woodburning tools, pricing them, and looking for how hot they get. Ran across a few that were pretty low in heat, but you could use them as a soldering iron also. Passed on those. I have found others from 800+ degrees of heat, that seem to be about the minimum for a decent burner. However, I found one that was a little over 1,000 degrees, and found a video of one being used. I think that is what I want, in the video the guy was burning lines about as fast as if he was using a magic marker, and that is what I want.
But decided I'd get some input from someone with more experience before I took the plunge. I have some experience with a burner. Got a lot of experience with freehand sketching. Price is no object here, the one I like costs $20+, has several tips. Anyone think there would be something better to get? If it comes down to it, I could use the one I have not, but want something faster, and will burn finer lines. I am not willing to spend over $30.
