A few tips for those of you branding wood for the first time:
- It takes a higher degree of heat and a slightly longer dwell time to brand hardwoods such as oak.
- Branded marks on soft wood tend to bleed, but you can easily sand away the “halo” surrounding your branded image.
- Using an electric heating tool in combination with a temperature control unit makes the task simpler. We offer U.S. electric heating tools for plugging into 120V and 220V-240V outlets.
- For high volume branding, using a drill press mounting electric heating tool increases accuracy and efficiency.
