Some examples of brass branding iron. Some with electric heating. Some with heating by an external gas burner.

Typical order process:
1. customer wishes

2. my edits and simulations

3. order customer

4. Done

Time from order to final product 24 hours.
Sometimes communication is long and many adjustments are needed. But it’s usually done in two to three days.

sometimes there are special requirements https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaYW3IM0pwA&t=3s
Or for slightly curved surfaces

sometimes they are absolutely fantastic logos

Not quite as fancy, but here is my brand I made about 15 years ago.

Those are very nice. I really enjoy using my branding iron. It really gives my projects that little extra touch.

papadan good job!

My first wood products were labeled with solder. Such an attempt at pyrography :). Then I made my first electric branding iron. Since then, there is no time to produce wooden products :)

Wow, that is really cool to see the process from the other side.
How do you carve the metal? I’d be really interested in seeing that part as well.

I use a large milling machine and a lathe for the production of blanks. On stamps I use of course CNC machines. and really very small tools :).
