    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.

                Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

                For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.

                A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
