It works really well, you just have to test it on scrap of the same wood to make sure it's heated enough and depending on the wood type and hardness, how long to leave the iron in contact with the wood

Professional touch to your craft
Works very nicely! Just be sure to practice on some scrap wood prior to branding your finished work. I found that doing a slight rolling motion (left/right/up/down) increased complete and even burn.

My husband and I are both carving now. Can I get an additional head with his initials and changed it on this iron?

How do I customize lettering for the branding iron??? Where do you do that???
Charles on Dec 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Charles
I got my branding iron as a birthday gift from my wife. I'm very pleased.
As you probably know, you get the lettered brass fitting by sending your request voucher to the manufacturer. You'll receive the branding iron itself in the mail and included is a voucher you can mail in with exactly what you want your "brand" to look like. You have a great deal of choices illustrated for you or you can request whatever design you want (with size and length limitations).
I wish I requested a date indicator on mine. I'm happy with the brand itself. It's exactly what I ordered. But now I'd like to be able to put a date on it somehow. I'm thinking of buying a wood burning set and hand numbering my brand.
Hope this is helpful.

Can you use on plastic tools?
Lreed on May 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: To get the branding iron to operating temp, a lot of damage would be done to anything plastic. Great for branding wood products, though!
I just received my branding iron ordered 3 weeks ago. No problem with the 3 week wait as I know it was their busy time with holiday orders. However, I am attaching a picture of what was in the box and I feel I am missing an adapter stem. The instructions mention the "adapter stem" but everything I received is in the picture I attached.

Can someone who has ordered one of these help? Sorry ... I cannot figure out how to add picture from my laptop.
BIGJEEPMAN on Feb 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: In the box should be the black corded handle, stand that used to rest the branding iron while heating not while not in use, the signature head and the adapter that the signature head screws onto and slides into the black corded handle and is held in with a screw.
These are the components that make up Rockler's electric branding iron. Contact Rockler if you are missing any of the above mentioned components.
How long does it take to heat and burn multiple pieces?
Alex M on Dec 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It takes about 15 minutes for the iron to get hot enough to burn. Then it stays plenty hot as long as it is plugged in. So depending on how coordinated and skilled you are you can do multiple pieces as fast as you can.
Will the branding iron arrive separately from the head??? I'd like to give this as a git and I would like the recipient to choose his own branding head.
Kimberly H on Nov 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It has been over a year since I purchased my branding iron. You get the iron, minus the head. You need to send in the certificate inside the box to order the head. I think you can go online and pick a logo and text you want on the head. It did not take long to get the head. Hope this helps.
Does the stick have a switch to turn it on and off?
Doc on Jan 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Doc,
Yes this branding tool does have an On/Off switch. I have found that a warm up time of about 20 minutes provides the best results for marking and a contact time of 20-25 seconds seems to work well
Regards
Mike
can I use also in leather products?
ed n on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ed,
I haven’t used this on leather yet. But I would think this would have no problem performing leather branding.
So just like I have to test burn different woods due to their hardness. You would have to test burn the leather. It’s more due to timing of head contact to the item you want to burn because there is no heat settings. It’s just on or off.
Hope this helps !
Is it possible to get a completely customized head; i.e. my own woodworking business logo, instead of one of the 15 standard designs?
Russell S on Oct 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: At the time I ordered mine I do not believe so. Also, I do not care for the head mechanism. It does not stay put and always wants to twist no matter how tight. The bushing just keeps spinning so you have to be careful when pressing into the wood.
I already have the head to the branding iron but can I buy just the branding stick?
Dowen G on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. But when I bought mine , there was no branding head, it was just the stick. I had to fill out a form on line so they could make me the head, and what I wanted it to say.
Can I buy just a replacement head for my torch heated iron?
Gary T on Nov 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They told me that if I wanted another one with different information I could order it, of course I would have to pay for any additional plates/heads. I am assuming you are using the branding iron that is carried by Rocker. I suggest that you contact the office and tell them your model of iron etc. Always good to hear from the horses mouth. Get the phone number from Rocker for there are two branding iron companies on the internet, for I got the wrong number at first.
Sorry not much help

Can the design be two letters with one overlaying the other?
Kathy on May 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It's my understanding that they charge more for speciality irons and having initials out of normal alignment makes it a speciality iron, just like a signature. I used only three initials and found them to be too large for my purposes. I still have the iron and am looking for other ways to use it.
A few years ago I purchased model ntc150 branding iron one of the wires inside the metal. How much would one cost without the head with my name ?
Don B on Apr 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Please contact Rockler Customer Service at 800-279-4441 for current pricing on the replacement handle for your branding iron.
How do i select the brand i want to use?
John N on Dec 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: To clarify, do you mean the branding head? Select the style/size that suits your project needs the best. The type of wood would depend on how much contact time is with iron (hardwood, like maple or oak, needs longer contact time. Good iron, works well. Received it as a Christmas gift a few years ago. Enjoy it.
Can I buy another branding head without buying the whole iron?
ben s on Nov 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe you can get interchangeable heads. Check the catalogue for the branding iron you have.
Hello there,

I would really really like to buy one of your wood burning stamps with a logo of a shop I would like to open. Do you offer simple designs? I know I would like a small circle maybe 6cm or bigger that says “urban drift” for a very organic store that sells all kinds of lamps, shelves, chandeliers, framed art work, jewelry, etc. all made from found wood. Nothing was harmed. Can you give me ideas?
Thank you for your time.
Jessica Seagraves.
Jessica on Aug 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Custom logo branding irons are available. Please take a look at item 21162, you will find the specifications for the required artwork there.
On the customized electric branding iron can you purchase removable heads so you can change them out?
Frank F on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is easy to change branding heads. Simply loosen the set screw and unscrew the head and wind on the new one and tighten the set screw. It is well engineered .
Do I have to buy any additional things to have a custom brand that is not one of your choices with this set?
Kathy S on Jun 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathy it's been awhile since I purchased mine but at that time you were limited to about 10-12 stock layouts that they "dropped" your name into. If you had a custom logo there was a custom option that you could pay additional for however if I remember correctly the cost for a custom head was almost twice the price of the entire unit from Rockler.... check with your local rockler store I believe there is a website specifically for this branding iron that lays out the options!
What's the measurement of the branding head? I turn bowls and want to make sure this isn't to big for what I want. thank you for a response.
David W on Jan 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Enter an answer to this question.
Standard head designs are 3/4'' high and the width varies based on the design and amount of characters
Do any of the designs allow for 22 letters per line?
eric s on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Eric,
My understanding (from the catalog) is : a maximum of 20 letters per line on both large and standard size designs; unless the width of the characters is (all) narrow. In the illustrations in the catalogue, I see that "Rockler Woodworking" takes up 19 spaces with " a little room to spare". I don't know if the foundry folks need that little extra space in their casting process. Might be worth a querry.
Good luck.
Irwin
Can I buy additional heads ?
Ron M on Feb 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but it almost as expensive as ordering the iron and head, when it is on sale. The heads cost $89.00 each:
