Being an RC airplane modelist I have accuired tools that are used for this hobby that can also be very well suited for woodworking. If you are using a tipical house hold iron for you banding there’s a better tool for this and it doesn’t take up near the room that a house hold iron does. I use it when I do banding and it can be purchased at any local hobby store that sells RC related stuff It's called Hanger 9 Sealing Iron

Good to know. I like it cuz it’s gotta thermostat, and would be a heck of a lot better than a big ole iron. Thnx fer the post.

What I like to do Roger is get a baby sock and put over the iron so I don’t take a chance of burning the banding plus it helps it slide over the banding better.

I’ll keep this in mind.
I used my wifes iron once and she threatened me with bodily harm if I ever did it again :-)

Thanks. This looks almost identical to the one sold by Woodcraft for$48.50; and at Hangar 9 it is on sale for $16.99 (regular $22.99)—very interesting.
