This is a UK seller but the price so fair that it might be worth buying even the shipment.
And it comes in 220v and with an English power plug (I changed mine to a Danish plug).
The burner plate with my Japanese inspired MaFe logo.
You will need to make your own artwork and send it to the seller in the right file formats, no premade templates here so if you don’t know how to do this or have some one that can help you this is not the right product.
Finally I got my branding iron!
Do I need one? No.
But I love it!
It gives a personal touch to what you make, and can be used to brand your tools so long fingers will stay off them…
This branding iron looks and feels like a little soldering iron, it warms up fast and is more than hot enough.
I wanted my mark small and simple so I used only 1×1cm of the space but it offers an 18mm in diameter to fill out if desired. It comes also in 38 and 48 diameter versions with more power.
The hard part is to know when to stop, but that goes for many parts of life so as always try a place where it do not matter if it mess up, and be aware that different wood types react really different to the heat so test before you try on new wood types.
The price is 66 British pounds app 100 dollar, this I think is a fair price for a custom-made branding iron.
So final judgment is:
Full stars, a good buy compared price and quality, and an excellent service from the Tool Post.
So where do I get it:
Here a direct link to the page of specifications and prices:
Hope those who asked where I bought this iron are happy now I’m glad I could help.
