Default Branding Timber

Dont know if I am posting this in the right place, if not, I'm sure someone will move it.

Looking for a branding tool, I think BJ has one, where a name/town can be burnt on to

the workpiece.Any links would be handy. And, must be 240 volt. Thanks.....AL

Al, instead of spending big bucks for an electric model go with one you heat with a torch; they are a fraction of the price. You could also heat the iron on a hot plate. Rockler is one source: Rockler - Search Results for 'branding iron'

Hi

Just my 2 cents, they are about the same price ,go with the elec.one the other type is a PITA to use.. I have one each of them..
But the Torch one maybe your best bet, 220 volt maybe a big hang up..
Just a note,,, I did over heat the torch one and it did warp the block a bit, now I need to rock it to get it down in the wood and a clean print.. but no errors with the elec. one

BJ, the 220 is the problem; I haven't found any yet. Here is another source, a very nice guy named Terry that I almost bought a band saw from. Terry does really nice work.

Pheewwww....thanks for all the links fellas...good stuff....Harry, ya better get out of your comfort zone and get over here ASAP, at the moment I'm busier than a one armed brickie in Belfast!......clock sales are good and we have added the other little number to the shop window....tea candle holders!

I havent had time to make the jig yet Harry, had to get a tooth out at the dentist yesterday, so I cheated and bought a bastard flat file for the interim. (sharpen spade bit)

Why dont you post the jig on the forum....its well done and hopefully easy to make.

Oh well, maybe some light on the horizon around the weekend to catch up!

BJ and Mike., As I said, had a quick look at the brands, and reckon I will go with the gas heated model. I have got a flame thrower we used to use in the pig sheds to clean them for hygiene related issues that would do the job, the only thing is how small are the letters....hard call, we want to see the word but dont want to cover the clocks in letters.

Will keep you posted as to the results, ....Regards.....AL

That candle holder does you great credit Al. Regarding the jig that you mentioned, I hadn't intended to post it because you asked me privately for the advice on how to rout the holes because you were having problems blunting drills, but as you don't mind I'll post a zip file.
