Hi Everyone,

I’m looking to get an electric wood burning stamp so I can mark my work when finished. My question is what are you using that gives you a nice crisp result? I’m finding that they can be expensive, so I’d rather not have to buy several different ones to find the best one for me. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you enter “Branding Irons” on the lj’s search engine, you’ll see 3,000 results. I use a electric wood burner and engrave my 3 initials. I have checked into branding irons & small laser engravers. Using a branding iron on high heat will also burn the surrounding surfaces of the image. so use a lower heat setting. practice on scrapes at different temperatures. Check the review that CL810 did 10/15/2018 on vanHanke branding irons.

Rockler also sells them, but I believe you can only select from some standard “images” along with how you want your name displayed. In other words, I don’t think you can custom design something. My wife bought one for me and it does the job. Very clear, but I always test on a scrap of the same material to be get a feel for how long to hold it on for the burn based on the material.
