      Talk about timing....
      Just yesterday I bought the pens I need to start getting into it.
      I have Sue Walter's DVD, and just got her book for Christmas.
      I plan to use them, (pyro tools), for carving, and to add a new dimension to my inlay work....

        Good luck Jim. I enjoyed Pyro for about seven years. Hope to combine scroll and pyro work as the new year progresses and my shed warms up a bit. Harder to burn when very low temperatures hehe, though at least its not freezing yet.

        I have two machines, one uses wire that one can shape yourself, good for fine work and some shading techniques. And one uses pens with interchangeable blade type burners, they are mostly for burning carved animals or other 3 dimensional objects, though still good for flat work. Can't recall the names offhand, will post a couple pics tomorrow if the high winds die down (starting too) and I can get back to sorting my shed.

        Enjoy

          Below, my two burners are a Janik wire tool and a Colwood blade tool, plus a nice tip for you, a picture of my burn area where I used felt backers to create a none slip area which makes it easier to keep work steady while burning and protects the back of a project.

          Bit blurred but will do.

            You inspired me to get a site up, so I have placed what old photos I still had left onto it. I hope to add to it as I do more pyro-Scroll-and pyro/scroll hybrid projects.

            Cheap freeby site, but adequate for my needs.

              Wow,
              Sunlion, I just toured your site. Very impressive...!!!
              I can only hope to become as adept as you at pyrography...

              This is a new and exciting thing for me....

                  Thanks Jim, Paul,

                  My style is somewhat different at times hehe, I love celtic design as well as many other types, I am quite ecclectic where my creativity is concerned, though most of the work on site is nature and/or celtic in style on those pics.

                  I have had great stisfaction form burning and hope you both have too, I find it very rewarding. All I have to do now is try and develop my scrollsawing to catch up, hehe, talk about glutton for punishment (for future long term pleasure that is ).

                  In the process of trying to develop a hybrid Pyro scrollsaw pattern in Inkscape, will post it if it works out. Been a while since I designed on computer so its still a learning curve in the sawing and design as yet.

                  nm, once up to speed on that I can start to saw and burn hehe. be warm in my shed then.

                    Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                    Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                    Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                    HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
