For the most part I bought this for pyrography (or woodburning) which is a method of writing and drawing into wood with high temperatures. But there are a bunch of other woodburners out there, why did I buy this one? Well, this one comes with adjustable tips (And boy, do I love my adjustable tips!) for other jobs such as soldering, hot-knife cutting, image transfers and stamping, as well as some lead-free solder, which I appreciate since I was shopping for solder at the time, too.
This is such a fun tool!

This is such a fun tool!! It does get a little hot on the grip after you use it for a while ( i have also been using it at the highest temp.) I decided I was going to teach myself how to wood burn- it’s been fun and this was super easy to use. I’ve had a blast making Christmas gifts- definitely took some getting used to though.
Good tool for home use!

I am very happy with the wood burner from Walnut Hollow. So far I have only tried a couple of tips, but they work great. A bonus is that it comes with a plastic carrying case to hold it and the assortment of different tips, though I have yet to put mine into it so I am not sure how it will fit. I like the adjustable temperature control, though I do find that at times it has moved after I adjusted it to the highest temperature, and I don’t find out until I realized it was not burning as quickly as it should have. This is one thing that could be improved, a tighter temperature control mechanism. I just used a piece of tape to keep it at the high temperature I needed. Overall, this is a great tool and the price on Amazon was the best I found. Good purchase, happy buyer. I would recommend this brand of wood burner to others.

This is a great woodburner for the money.The adjustable temp control is real great feature that is hard to find on inexpensive woodburners.In addition to the stand I use a piece of tape to stick the cord to your bench.A more flexible cord would be a nice improvement though.Overall I would give it an A+.
Does the Job with One Minor Tweak…

This tool did a good job for what I needed it for. The internal thermostat can be a little frustrating, especially when working with a small tip. The tip would obviously lose heat much quicker than the internal thermostat, so the pen would decrease heat/turn off because according to the internal thermostat, the pen was at the selected temp, when the tip was much cooler. I solved this problem by blowing on the thick metal portion of the pen, decreasing the internal temp and allowing the entire pen to warm back up. Turning the pen off and on also works but is more time consuming. All in all this pen helped me to do the job I needed. I would eventually like to invest in a higher quality pen, but right now I am in college so things are pretty tight. I attached a picture of the completed work. My project was a clipboard for grad school. Check out WinWood designs and their note catcher clipboards here on amazon. They’re beautiful, American made and look like they’ll last a lifetime. Happy Pyrography everyone!
great for fine art!

i really wanted to do fine art and didnt know if this tool would work based on reviews. but it would be my first time with wood burning so i didnt want to spend a lot of money. this tool turned out to be perfect! i followed directions such as letting the tips cool completely before changing them. i mostly used one tip for the whole thing anyway. yes the cord is short so sit near an outlet or use an extension cord. yes the dial easily rubs against clothing changing the temp. i just duct taped the dial to the medium high setting when working on alderwood. its the wood that determines the temp. the handle did not get too warm to hold. when looking at videos of wood artists using more expensive tools i noticed they use a heat resistant glove. so all tools likely get a little warm. see pics for what you can achieve. love it!
Awesome Kit For Beginners
3 people found this helpful.
For a pretty cheap priced woodworking pen this one is a great set for many uses. If you are just getting started or need more tips and adjustable temperature this set is for you. I purchased this kit mainly for the flat transfer tip to transfer logos to wood from a copier print. With the adjustable temperature setting you can practice with transferring until you find the perfect temperature them make a mark on your dial for transfer settings.If you use a regular woodburing pen for transferring you will find that you need to scrub off the heat so as to not burn the paper but keep enough heat to liquefy the toner to make the transfer work better. This is where the adjustable setting makes it’s money.
Great Tool for a pro or hobbiest!

This product arrived promptly, and was beyond my expectations considering the price. I love the look and feel of the versa tool! I couldn’t wait to get started, I allowed about 5 minutes for it to heat up, and started practicing right away. The tool is easy to use, didn’t get overly hot during my project, and was simple to replace the different tips. I found this to be a fun and relaxing project, and will be using it a lot considering more time spent indoors due to winter coming. I think this is an awesome edition for any artist, or crafter and will likely share this with my son as he gets a bit older. I think it’s a fun activity for kids, with supervision from an adult, and the possibilities are endless! I’m working on a few ranch signs, and Christmas ornaments already. I’m happy with this tool, and love the versatility, all for a great price too!
… wood burning art and thought this would be a great in-expensive beginners tool
7 people found this helpful.
I have been wanting to learn how to make my own wood burning art and thought this would be a great in-expensive beginners tool. I love the options that this comes from, the amount of different points, in my opinion, has so far not left me with wishing I had more options. The actual tool itself works well, the only drawback to it is that it does take a long time to heat up, but then it works perfectly once it does.
Love it! Perfect for Beginners!

Absolutely love this versatool. I just started woodburning. The adjustable heat gives me better control. I haven’t tried shading work too much but I’m really happy with this for just regular old burning work. Not crazy about the brass shaped tips, however. The regular tips are great.
