I can’t offer you any personal advice because I am in the same boat as you are. I have had a lot of fun with the Walnut Hollow style burners, but I am not going to get much better without going to something with a more reliable heat range.

Colwood, Burnmaster, and Razertip are the most commonly recommended ones. From what I have seen the Burnmaster will take Razertip pens. I assume the reverse it probably true too.

There is another unit called an Optima 1. Don’t know much on it, but it is what Mike Peace uses for adding burning to turned projects. I have gotten a lot of good woodturning advice from his channel so I am inclined to look at what he uses for burning as well. Visually the Optima looks like it has the same connector the Burnmaster and Razertip use.

Good luck and when you pull the trigger let us know what you picked.
