After the first wacky try to make a branding tool (HERE), i made me new tiny brass branding iron stamp for my wooden toys.
This time, instead of using a common font, i did vectorize my signature and let the CNC mill do the work with a our smallest 0.3mm drill. Afterwards i made a brass mount with M2 screws for holding the stamp plate in position. The signature stamp is approx. 15mm wide. I still have to get a good feeling how long i have to press on different woods till the signature is burned clean into the surface. So far i’m pretty happy with my new tool and it heats up very nice while clamped into a 40W soldering iron.
Now all my new wooden stuff will get some hot mark on their butts for sure! ^____^
I’m a huge fan of brass, it’s really easy to work with it and it’s perfect for my next small experiment: branding my wooden toy hordes! I used the CNC milling cutter to get me some small brass stamps with my name engraved (first attempt was a miss, because i forgot to mirror inverted the letters…urgh!). I used a soldering iron and needed some patience with the sightly goatish PEARBLOCK guys, but finally i got the result i was looking for!
There are also a few pictures of a new wood fellow, i call him the PEARDEER! I finished him with a nice and shiny semi gloss finish, hope you like him…
