R U using a burner/cauterizer?

I love mine, got the replaceable tip version as the tips get hammered fast if you abuse them.
FinLuvers mention about decreasing the heat will make life more awesome.
I love mine for removing errant fibers that escape my grasp when finishing a head AND this is a great tool for burning a corner in a Bong or pipe bowl, minimal fire and it burns clean. (Warning, using as a smoking tool will decrease the life of the tip, buy extras.)

Mine came from an EMT friend & work just fine when I need one. I use them most of the time to get a nice sealed-end cut on Dacron backing or for creating eye sockets on deer hair heads.

Hi Jim.

THAT was exactly what I wanted to use it for.....embedding eyes in heads! I will check with my medical friends...

I used mine on occasion, mostly to just clean up errant fibers. It works great for that purpose. I suggest the replacement tip model as mentioned, I had the non-replacement head model and one day it just died, thus of no further value.
