Typical Rockler... Outstanding!
I originally bought this kit for some projects that I've been putting off for far too long. It arrived quickly, and just as quickly, fell into the possession of my Better Half. I'll be putting in another order shortly.

Thanks for always having such great products...

Really great, easy to use kit!
This is a really easy kit to use and is a lot like drawing except with heat. I've really enjoyed it so far and I'm glad the wood burning lady recommended me this. It's been really useful and helped me realize that woodburning is definitely a hobby I enjoy. My husband and I are planning all kinds if furniture together where I burn decoration into whatever he builds and I can't wait to see how they turn out!

youny on Nov 9, 2015
Tip has broken off in the pen. How can I remove the metal left inside the pen? A little bit below shaft threading.
DeAnna B on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If it's broken past the head there shouldn't be any pressure holding the threads in. use a nail thinner than the threaded insert, dab some super glue on the tip, adhere it to the piece stuck inside. after it dries, it should back out without a problem.
Why would there be a problem getting the tips to go in the actual tool after only one project? It's like something is in the way and won't let it screw in .
Deb M on Aug 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I haven't had that problem. However, what comes to mind is that it may have become gummed up with burnt sap or other material. I would check to make sure it is cleaned out well - especially the screw grooves. Expansion/contraction of the elements may be involved, but you would need to have a professional look for that issue. I'd be surprised if that was the case.
do these pens work to burn signatures and other words??
David W on Apr 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would say yes. With the variety of tips in the kit, you should be able to find something that would work for a signature or words. Just practice for a bit on a scrap of the same wood as your project to choose the correct tip and temperature setting for the job, and you'll quickly get your technique down. I've used this kit a few times on small projects. I didn't want to spend a lot for the limited amount I figured I would use it, and the kit has filled the bill for me. Great quality for my needs.
I am looking to create a wall of signatures from guests who visit our house. My thought was to have each guest sign an individual 8x11 wood panel that we would post on a wall. What kind of wood panel would work? A cedar shake? Would this tool do the job?
Matthew M on Feb 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Cedar or Pine are good but Basswood is even softer and easier to burn into (I use this wood for carving as well).
I would suggest having folks sign the wood with a marker and then go behind with the wood burner. Most folks will find a wood burner, rotary tool or engraver too unwieldy to give you an accurate depiction of their signature so it's in my opinion that it would likely be better looking if you have your guests sign the wood with a marker that glides across the wood easily and then tackle the wood burning yourself. Pens or pencils tend to dig into wood and jump across grains (resulting in shaky looking writing) if too much pressure is applied while writing or if the wood isn't completely smooth. Markers are more forgiving but they can bleed so try some finer tipped ones on a scrap piece first.
Dumb question will it work to sipe or grove fat bike tires
Dan M on Feb 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Any type of hot iron can shape or groove rubber, but it will be messy and smelly. The toolhead is the correct size and shape and you can control it very well with the way the handle and body is designed. Work outdoors, wear a mask. Good luck
Do you make a wood burning versa tool that has the control non closer to the plug? I find on the one I bought the control knob gets hung up on edge of counter or my project!
Carolyn on Dec 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Interesing question because I experienced the same issue. To keep the temp dial knob from hanging up on the table top edge, I riged up a simple support wire post that lfted the wood burning cord above the table top's working surface. This keeps the knob up and off the table's edge while the wire support is flexible enough to allow for moving the units tip around the work surface. Another suggestion might be to cut the temp/set unit from the cord and after splicing the cut cord back together reinstalling the temp unit nearer the cord's plug end. Once set to the wanted temp you usually won't need to adjust it too often.
How do you change a tip???
Rosie on Apr 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: before use i just use my fingers to twist off the tip. after/during use take a good leather glove (at best. at worst i take a set of needle nose pliers) and gently grasp then gently twist the tip off. but it is an excellent little wood burner
Can i USE this in Norway with a transformer (220-120)? Svein.
Sewest on Dec 25, 2016
I'm not an electrician but have spent some time in Europe (England, Iceland, Belgium, Denmark and Norway) where all my personal electronic items have worked correctly if the translating plugs for the pieces have been used so I have to assume that choosing the correct adaptor (plug) will be appropriate for the wood burning kit, as well. If I'm correct and the plug adaptor works I know that the wood burning kit is a quality piece of equipment and you should find it a valuable addition to your hand tools.
Is this the newest model?

What is the spring used for in the kit?
Trishia E on Feb 16, 2018

Do you think this could work to "melt" divots or small holes to create a recess to glue point back rhinestones in hard plastic/acetate? Assuming there's a fine, sharp-pointed tip in this kit? Thank you!
J2Squared on Dec 25, 2017
I'm looking for a woodburning tool that has a super-fine (tiny) tip that will give me an indentation equal to 20pp/2.60mm on plastic/acetate/polycarbonate. Is this the tool to do that with, or should I be looking at a different option?
