Customized Electric Branding Iron Customized Electric Branding Iron Customized Electric Branding Iron Click the pictures to enlarge them

this was one of those things i had been wanting to do for a while get some kind of advertisement out .some of the stuff i sell are just simple things but a lot of the sells come from seeing it at the ones home that buys them and they send them back ,this i learnt while in trade school taking auto body shop the instructor always said do a good job and the work will come back to you from it ,with this it will be there on the item , it works just as advertised and Rockler is a great company to do business with ,great costumer service. its a five star product , they have other designs and some that are not electric but heated with a torch but being in the south i try to keep away from heat as much as possible in the summer months ,which i am ready for but know when it gets to those 100 degree days ill be wanting winter back. its a great product.

the brand on the right i held to the wood (red Oak) for abourt 5 r 6 seconds and the one on the left for just a few it had a lot more detail on it ,it gets very hot takes about 10 min . have no regrets so far

Very nice Eddie…..it is essential to show your work and this looks like a great way to go. Whats the story behind the name, Bawcomville?

Very cool, Eddie. Not sure I want anyone knowing what I made, but if I could make something nice it would be great – grin.

I’ve always wanted to get one made but as a lot of my projects are small I’ve stuck to a rubber stamp. This would be great for the larger items that I make.

Thanks for sharing.

This is a great gift for a budding woodworker. I have a neighbor that has been haunting my garage for the last year and I got him one of these for Christmas. He was thrilled beyond words, and has been practicing with it on everything. We’re in the middle of a wine bar build and he’s done most of the work, while I look over his shoulder and say “Wait a second, what about this edge”, or “I think you need to clamp that down a little more before you run it through”, or ” keep the bevel on the stock always, it needs support while you turn”. Sharing this hobby is part of the hobby for me.

BTW , one of the silicone baking sheets will protect your formica bench if it slips off the stand.
I use one for soldering and my hot glue gun. The glue doesn’t stick, and it protects my bench from hot dripping solder.

I would love to get one, but can’t justify the cost , it’s a nice to have at this point.
