Put the brass banding iron on the stove top for a bit to get it hot and give it a test.  I'm happy with it!

Yep!  It's a Beauty, an American Beauty 250 watt.  Found the best price at Home Depot online.

I figure it can double as a short length lightsaber...lol

I have an American Beauty iron, my uncle gave me, when I was about 16. It is 500 (!) watts, and was used to solder lead pluming lines. I don't think they make one that large any more.

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

I got the makers mark iron put together   I think it is going to work out well. 







Finish the first part of cutting this one.  I need to cutting the lugs off the ends and mount in the vise to finish up on the ends.
