Default Re: Wood burners... is there special one to get?

I have the cheapo Wally World one, but I absolutely LOVE IT! That is, until I burned the Grand Canyon into my carpet one day when I was in a flurry of motion. Oops. So buy it, it's worth it even if you have to replace the flooring! LOL ;o)

I could not live without mine. I love it!! At first I was scared to death of getting burned but the more you use it the more comfortable you get.

Don't get one that's too hot! Mine is 1150 degrees F and it destroys ribbon...

I bought my at my local Lowes store - I have not used it yet - but from what I hear from here - I know I will like it. Question? - what to you use to place the ribbon on when you cut it with the tool?

Debrat,

I cut on top of a large piece of plain glass that was broken out of a frame (sounds dangerous, but definitely cheap and eco-friendly!). So just plain glass like would be in a frame would work. I'm sure the same could be said of a ceramic tile and similar fire resistant materials. ;o)

Where'd the person with the 1150 degree wood burner get theirs? I need a higher heat burner for some boxes my Grampa made before he died.

I bought at a local hobby store. Do you want it? (before it kills again...)

LOL Dede! Has it killed before? Rogue burning tool? ;o)

That reminds me of a story with my own wood burner! One day I was on the telephone for work and thought my burner was off when I went to change the tip...

UM...chargrilled fingers? I don't think I have fingerprints yet on my thumb and index finger!
