You could use the branding iron like this. You would just have to heat it with a tourch.
We wanted to be able to use the heat from a small wood burning tool. For this, we have to remove as much excess material as possible. The object is to have a very small thin branding iron so it will not take forever to heat up.
We used a dremel grinder and a variety of dremel tools to grind away material.
The next step is to just start carefully grinding away any material surrounding the logo. We used brass but aluminum should also work. Please see the video listed above for details on the grinding process.
We started by designing a small logo and then creating a mirror image of that logo. We used Corel draw but any graphic design program will work.
We then traced that logo onto transfer film which is available at most arts and crafts stores.
