    Karl, Fox Chapel has a pyrography forum at Pyrography Online Messageboard
    Hope the link works for you. FC also had a magazine, one issue so far, that is still available that has a great list/rating of various woodburners. Also, great articles for the beginner or the pro!

      Pyrography, wood burning tools and equipment - Razertip. has an excellent burner with hundrends of tips. Check the web site for a dealer near you or they could ship it from the factory. The owner, Cam Merkle, who is a carver himself, knows his stuff and is willing to answer questions. He provides good service. phone 1-887-729-3787 toll free. Box-store burners are cheap, but this one has worked for years, is easy to use, with a rapid heat up, and temperature control for different purposes.
      Hope this helps

        Gotta admit that when I first read this post, I wondered. When did Walmart start selling wood stoves?

              Quick question. What are you trying to burn? Pine is not a good wood to burn on. Also, hardwoods are very difficult to burn. Try some baltic birch. Sand it to a 220 finish. I have seen a lot of fantastic work done with those "cheap" burners.

                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
