Pyrography is burning detailed pictures and decoration on wood. Pokerwork is similar but cruder. The best way to do either is with our machine which we have manufactured and perfected over the last 30 years or so.

What can the Child machine do? Why is it used by the best professional pyrographers in England?

penOur machine is in a class of its own for fine detailed work. The point is very fine and hot. It can be used as fluently and accurately as pen and ink to create detailed pictures and designs. The efficient design of the pen is the secret of its success. It is slim, light and comfortable to hold. The tip is close to your fingers so it is like holding a fountain pen. Even with the tip running at 1000 degrees centigrade very little heat runs back to the handle. This is because the space age alloys used in the construction have an extremely low conductivity to heat. The pen can be used for many hours at a time without the handle becoming uncomfortably hot. The terminals are very reliable and the point is easy to change. You can easily buy or make points from (special) wire and fit them without technical skill. A huge variety of points can be made by you quickly and at extremely low cost. Points can be filed to a point for very fine detail or made up to 4mm wide for heavy duty work.

Can it be used for feathering effects on carved birds?

It is not designed for this but does it rather well. It is easy to make the tips using nickel chrome wire. The cost of making a new tip is very low indeed and you can devise shapes to suit yourself. The big advantage of using our machine is that the handle stays cool and it is very light and accurate - it can be used for long periods without tiring.
