  • Pyrography

    I would like to add another level to my scrollwork with pyrography.
    Any recommendations as to who makes the best burners?

    My friend, Alfie Fishgap (www.fishgap.com) swears by the Colwood Galaxy. I've got other friends who swear by Razortip...both are really good burners.

    I've also heard great things about the Burn Master by Wood Carver's Supply...they even sell a combination unit burner/micro motor rotary tool. The Burnmaster can be adapted to use ANY burner.


    The reason I mention the micromotor is that I found mine invaluable for removing the fuzzies from the nativity scene I recently cut. Chuck severa pieces of 0000 synthetic steel wool in a mandral, and run it against the back of the pieces at about 1/2 speed...the fuzzies just disappear!!!

      Bob,

      I would love to see a series of articles that flow with patterns in the Scroll Saw Work Shop Magazine that teaches how to incorporate wood burning into the project.

      Nothing serious, just how to highlight and or add 'flavor' to scrolled pattern.

        I have used just a cheap wood burner on some of my scenic pictures where I thought the wood wood become too weak if I cut it. For instance I had shingles on a barn that would have weakened the wood too much, I just burned the lines in and it really looked great. I also burned the vertical siding lines on the barn. I used a very fine tip on the burner.

            .. and apologies if I'm telling you something you already know, Rolf, but there's pyrography section on the FC woodcarving message board here - http://www.woodcarvingillustrated.co...splay.php?f=58

              Thank you Ian,
              I was not aware of that web site.

                The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                Now,...

                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
