    A while back I posted a new branding iron

    I got this one from Amazon custom made to my graphic. 2" x 2"

    This is what it looks like

    So having already purchased the electric iron the expensive part, I recently ordered one with my Chinese family name about 1.5"
    Here's two test brands. It fits the same iron, just threads on (M8 thread) easily. Just came today.

    The bad thing is that if I want to use both brands I have to heat one up, then wait for it to cool, switch, then heat it up again.
    I've been using about 10 minute heat up time and a similar cooling time. Might be shorter.

    All ordered from Amazon seller Arokimi, they are sourced from China. and are delivered in 15 days or so.

    improved stand I made:

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

    Sounds like you need another electric iron... You've got the brands themselves now...

    Since my family name is "Americanized" I wouldn't get a lot of benefit from having that particular addition. However I have been considering getting a wood burning variant of the Amish Heritage Workshop stamp made. I do know I am pretty hit or miss on the Daves Workshop logo as it is pretty complex design wise...

      Well, I do feel I have something truly unique here in both brands, not just the design everyone else has but with "your name here".
      Since they can work off any JPG or PNG file, making custom artwork is easy and not all that expensive, maybe get a friend good with art to help And there is a lot of graphics, font's, clip art on the internet to borrow elements of.

      For my Texas shaped stamp artwork, I used Google Images, a free font Website, and Microsoft's Paint application that comes installed with Windows.

        I'm actually not bad myself, The issue is I didn't take into consideration the tree rings for example as the burn marks are very close together.

        I will like redesign mine now that I have the swing of it. Honestly only really needs every other tree ring line removed... I can do that.
    Working...
