Pyography by Peter Child
- Ideal for the finest detailed work but with plenty of power available for heavy lettering
- Slim pencis with handle close to the point gives precise control. Quick and easy to use. High tip temperature enables fast, free-flowing strokes.
- Handle runs cool even with continuous use
- Warm-up from cold in under 2 seconds. Finely adjustable heat to over 1000°C
Low cost wire points can be quickly replaced but can last for years. Range of shapes available.
- Make your own brands from wire at a very lost cost
- Spare pencils can be quickly plugged in to change to a different style of point.
- Salef, reliable, low voltage control unit housed in heavy duty steel case. Maximum out put at terminals is only 2.5 volts. Recommended for use in schools. Versions available for 240V or 110V mains.
Principle of Operation
The hot wire principle used by this machine has many advantages for pyrography. The point is a loop of wire held in screw clamps and heated by the electric current. The loop is pinched together at the tip to concentrate the heat. The points can work at a very high temperture so they burn a mark very quickly allowing free flowing strokes to be made with very little pressure just like using pen and ink. The heat control on the power unit gives precise and immediate control of point temperature up to white heat.
