Well, I broke my second $35 woodburner last week. I seem to find a way to strip the threads on the inside of the wand so I can't get tips on or off. Sigh. So, what's a pyrographer to do? I WAS going to go online, do some research and find myself a GOOD burner...but then my wonderful other half tells me he has already done the research, was going to get this for my birthday in March, and would I rather have it now instead? OF COURSE!!! So, happy day, the new burner arrived yesterday. Dual wand, amazing temperature control, heats up & cools surprisingly quickly, and a mind-boggling array of tips. Love it!!!! Can't wait to burn!!!
