Branding iron tool rest

Recommended Posts

I just hand hold the handle and rotate the brass branding "iron" in the flame.  Periodically I test it for hot enough on scrap wood.  The propane torch stand on it's bottom.

I'm not familiar with any commercial brand holder, it should be simple to fashion one from stiff, heavy wire.. Buy a couple feet of AWG#6 bare copper ground wire and band it to the shape you need.

Personally, I stand my iron on its head, on the eye of my kitchen stovetop.

oh interesting never thought about a propane stove like a camp stove for that taste, seems like it would work really well since its a wide flame.

My kitchen range is electric. Still heats the iron with no trouble.
