Branding iron
My children bought this branding iron for me for Christmas. It is exactly what they ordered and looks great. I am excited and can't wait to use it. The delivery time was very fast. I would recommend it to anyone. It is made very well.

Woodworking Experience:
I have wanted to have a brand for my wood working projects for years. I just received mine in time to put the brand on a Shaker Laptop desk for my wife. What a beautiful way to finish the piece and give it my brand on the finished desk. My wife loves it and so do I. Cannot wait to put it on my next project.

Custom branding iron
I purchased this as a gift for a cousin who saw items in our house that I had made and branded (my Wife gave me one years ago). She was going to give it to her husband for Christmas but since he had some projects under way, she gave it to him early and he is a happy camper.
It's a great gift for making personalized projects and I can speak from my own experience, everyone always turns it over to see if it's "branded"! Highly recommend this product.

Just what I was wanting
It's exactly what I was wanting. The brand is clean and exact, very easy to apply and quick to heat. Very pleased

Works great!
Very nice electric iron. Takes about 15 minutes to heat up; branding takes about 1 second.

Electric Branding Iron
It works well, lines on flag stamp lines are to close together, and burn together most of the time. Other than that it works well.

Woodworking Experience:
Not compatible with old electric heater, engraving isn't as deep
My grandpa had 2 of these irons made years ago. I decided to get a head made with my name and planned on using his old heater, but the new ones use a different mount. The new version also isn't engraved as deeply. Until I can jerry rig a soldering iron as a heater I'll be using it as a torch heated iron, or more likely sticking with engraved plaques.

Woodworking Experience:
My kids gave me this for Christmas. Arrived yesterday and seems to work well but the instructions may be the absolute worst that I have ever read. Should be pretty simple to put together. Hope that it performs as advertised

Woodworking Experience:
Don't forget to read the confirmation email
I ordered the iron 3 weeks ago but failed to read the confirmation email they sent. So all this time I've been waiting for it to arrive only to find out, I never actually ordered it. you have to place the order again with the email voucher they send you. What a cheesy way to order a product.
I hope the product is better than there ordering process is.

How large is the branding iron? If doing two lines, how tall are the letters?
Cindy R on Apr 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The letters are 1/8" tall.
Do you do simple 3 initial brands still? I have one I bought here about 15 years ago. Letters are 3/16" tall by 1/8" wide. Looking for same with 3 initials. Thanks for your help
David D on Feb 3, 2019
I have a branding head, now need the electric iron to go with it. Can you buy just the electric iron?
Joel C on Jan 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You have to call Rockler and place the order over the phone. The item number from my replacement after my original iron broke was 11966. They did change the style of irons as some point so depending on your purchase date you may need and adapter screw which the manufacturer will provide if they are aware that you need it.
What is the size of the brand?
Bonni F on Apr 5, 2019
HerbW on Jan 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It seems to depend on the specific wood involved. Harder wood takes longer. Darker wood you would likely want to burn darker than a light wood. And if you want to do end grain, it takes a long time. I would recommend heating it up well, then try on a piece of scrap exactly like what you want the final to be.
what size is the image for the hand crafted by arch format?
David M on May 15, 2019

Can a custom design be sent in and a branding iron made of it?

How tall are the letters? Why doesn't the manufacturer answer any questions?
Richard M on May 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The characters are approximately 1/8" high and you will get between 12 to 20 characters per line. I have no idea why the manufacturer doesn't answer, but I hope this helps.
what are the dimensions of this brand, can it be put on a small bowl, with a 3"dia bottom?
Anna M on Nov 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The dimensions, are 2.75 wide by .75 high. It would work on the bottom of a 3” diameter bowl but the iron itself would not fit through a 3” diameter opening.
If the head of the iron is 3/4 high -- will just two lines of print fit on a 1/2 high piece of wood?
Argyl D on Oct 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I believe the print will fit in half inch space but it will be very close.
How do I order just a tip? I need a new circle form, no bigger than 1". I can't find one that fits this iron~
Kim K on Dec 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I do believe that the co. Rockler represents will make a custom brand, you would have to send them a PDF of the new brand. And yes you can order just a tip.
I am looking for a branding iron whose letters would be 3/8 - 1/2 inch high. Not electric. Only wish last name to be printed so as to mark tool ownership. Can you supply this?
Booje on Oct 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My iron is electric. But they put what I wanted on my iron. Hopefully this’ll help you.
What are the dimensions of the brand?
David W on Jul 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The brand is 3/4"X2 1/8". When you heat the iron, it will warp slightly so make sure that you rock the brand front to back and side to side to get the full pattern. Be careful to keep the brand oriented the same while completing these motions to prevent double printing parts of the brand.
I have an electric branding iron that is approximately 20 yrs old, will the custom heads still fit? The ad looks the same as it did 20 yrs. ago.
Bradley B on Jun 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I honestly do not know. Robert
