Customized Electric Branding Iron
Had been gifted the branding iron for Christmas and it took the stated 2-3 weeks to receive the customized head. I gave the unit the recommended 15 minutes to heat up. Only took a one second touch to get a crisp brand on a piece of red oak. Very happy with the product so far.

Nice but ....
It was a Christmas for my son-in-law. He loved it and the idea of signing his work. However he already had designed a logo and wanted to incorporate it. Turns out it was too expensive for him to go outside the standard design, so it was returned.

BEST ANSWER: The customized Electric Branding Iron Gift Set uses letters that are 1/8" tall
My husband and I are both carving now. Can I get an additional head with his initials and changed it on this iron?
Christine on Oct 27, 2015

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.

It states that there are 15 options to choose from..... Is there somewhere I can see those options?
Laurie on Nov 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you look at the pictures on the item's page on the Rockler website, use the scroll button on the right to view additional pictures. The last one shows the graphic options available. As of the date of this answer, the direct link to the picture is http://assets.rockler.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/720x720/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/s/t/standard_design_branding_irons_1.jpg
I started to order one of these, but I have not been asked what Information I wanted on it. When do they ask for my information?
Floyd on Nov 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The gift set includes a card with a number that you will need to use when accessing a website that will let you choose which branding iron head you want and what you want it to read. Once that is completed the head is then made and sent to you
What is the tread on the head?
William S on Nov 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The model I got just inserts into branding iron and has one phillips head retaining screw.
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!
How long does it take to heat and burn multiple pieces?
Alex M on Dec 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There is no set answer. Depends on size of brand, type of wood, how dark you want the brand. You also have to make sure its hot enough after branding a few pieces. I recommend that you you the same wood and experiment of how long to hold and how many. hope the helps
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
Gloria
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
What is the difference between this item 54404 and item 48893? One is $30.00 more but they look the same ... ?
BIGJEEPMAN on Jan 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I believe the 54404 is a gift set that comes with a certificate to get the actual customized branding iron, The 48893 is the same except you are ordering the customized branding part at the time you order the iron so they come together. So bottom line is a timing issue. My guess is they are overstocked from the holidays on the gift pack. Call rockler to be sure.
Is there an expiration date on the voucher???
Kimberly H on Nov 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I do not remember if there was because we sent it in right away, but I don't think so. If there had been, it would have been some time before it expired, or I would have noticed. It's a great iron and it would be a great gift. Sorry, I can not be positive, Calvin.
Can I just get a head made I already have the iron?
James B on Nov 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know the answer, but I would love to know the answer too. I want to have another one made but don’t know how to order it.
Can I use it on brass shell cases that I make pens out of?
Joel G on Jul 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It might not work on brass or any hard metal for that matter. You'd need a metal stamping equipment for that. This work very well on wood or on any surface that carbonize easily so as to leave the burnt image on the surface.
For your application, try an engraver or etching tool.
How does this iron work in hardwoods??
Craig W on Dec 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes it works with hardwood... just leave it on a bit longer. Time varies by species. Best to try it on a scrap piece of the species you want to "leave your mark!"
How do I order what I want to say in the branding iron?
Maria E on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: With the iron “handle”, you will receive an order form to complete and mail in. You specify the text, shape, and optional graphic at that time. The branding “head” will be made using the card you submit. It takes 4-6 weeks to get your actual brand after you mail the card. SLOW process, but let’s someone buy the gift and then the recipient decides on actua brand.
