Branding Instructions


Traditional Wood Handle:

The handle is threaded but the tips are not, you should be able to press fit the open end of your new tip snuggly over the threaded ends, twisting in a clockwise rotation as necessary. If the tip feels too loose the fit can be made more snug by first wrapping the threaded end with a few layers of aluminum foil, be sure to remove any exposed foil before heating.

Heat your brand tip until glowing red using a propane torch, Creme Brulee torch or other source of open heat.

Press tip firmly into product. The amount of time and pressure to use will vary depending on a lot of factors, including material, surface quality of material and the temperature of the brand tip, which will vary from design to design.

Always test and perfect your technique on scrap material prior to branding a finished product.

 

 

Soldering Iron (Electric Handle):

Remove the small screw in the side of the soldering iron and remove the tip that comes pre-installed. Slide your new brand tip into the end as deep as it will go and reset the set screw to secure the tip, the set screw does not align with anything on the tip. It is very important to slide it in all the way or you may burn out your electric handle.
You must use a screwdriver that is smaller than the set screw so you can recess the screw into the hole.

Turn the soldering iron on by plugging it in, allow the tip to heat up for at least 5 minutes. 

Press tip firmly into product. The amount of time and pressure to use will vary depending on a lot of factors, including material, surface quality of material and the temperature of the brand tip, which will vary from design to design.

Always test and perfect your technique on scrap material prior to branding a finished product.

If your soldering iron seems to be too hot then you may need to reduce the power running to it using a wattage regulator, we recommend the "Inland MiniPhaser Temperature Controller" These can be found on Amazon.
