Thanks for the information ICEMAN......I got my burner yesterday and started getting used to it. I promise to make sure the red light is off when I close the door behind me.

Pyrography is very relaxing.

Will you use a fan to dissipate the fumes?

Or, use exhaust?

There is no substitute for practice before starting work on a project. Learning how to shade is priceless. I gave my late wife Sue some plywood to practice on when she was starting out and she filled it with different designs. I was very impressed with her results which are in another thread from when this sub forum was first started. Here is her third effort to encourage you.
