Wow! I got my wood burner today!
Why, why, why did I wait so long??? I immediately plugged it in with the tip that was attached already (I'll figure out how to change 'em later, maybe), glued down the rinky dink stand per instructions recieved here, grabbed a ribbon scrap and VOILA! It WORKS!!!!! And it's so much cleaner than using the lighter. I wasn't even sure it had sealed - I couldn't tell it from a distance.
I am one HAPPY bow maker now! Well, except for the fact that I can't stay up ALL night making bows!
If you are waiting around like me... take my advice and RUN don't walk, RUN out & get you a wood-burner!
Mine was $24.99 at Hobby Lobby, but I had a 40% off coupon. It has several tips, but I may NEVER change 'em if this continues to work so well.
Thank you for all your tips & advice on this tool!
