What Is The Best Carrying case for your Burner, Pens & Accessories?

For years people have been asking me if I sell a carrying case to hold the burner & all the accessories. IMy Razertip Carrying Case. don't sell any & never will but I will give away my trade secret....the very best case I have ever found & have used for over 18 years is a cosmetic train case. I also call it my CSI case because it's the same case that it used in the show CSI.

I bought mine at JC Penney many years ago during the holiday season. It came fully packed with cosmetics that I gave away. Keep in mind that this case is more than 18 years old & has been to a lot of classes & shows but it has withstood a lot of abuse. This one is aluminum but they are available in a variety of materials.

Razertip burner carrying case.My burner, all my pens, cleaning tools, etc. all fit inside. Now you are going to say..."but you only recommend 3 pens, so why do you carry so many in your case"? The answer is simple...at shows people want to see a pen that will accomplish a certain task & I have to show them what it can do. The same goes for my classes. I want people to see a variety of pens & let them see what they are capable of doing. It doesn't mean I use them all & I don't but it was necessary to have them available.

So if you are looking for the best carrying case check out Walmart, JC Penney & the cosmetic department in most department stores will carry a case like this. I alsoMy Razertip Carrying Case. suggest perhaps taking your burner with you so you can put it in the bottom to see if it fits.

Just as an FYI, my case measures: 12" long x 8 3/4" wide x 10" high. The bottom section inside (where I store my burner, strop, aluminum oxide & other items) measures 5" high. This may not work for every brand but it works perfectly for my Razertip. It will accommodate either the single or dual output burners & just about anything else you need to carry with you when you travel, attend classes, etc.

Canvas Bags, leather items for Pyrography & Other Crafts Through Amazon

Click on the photos below to go to my Amazon page with these items.

Pyrography on Leather Bookmark.As some of you are now discovering Pyrography is not reserved for burning just on wood. As IRose on canvas bag. perfected my woodburning techniques I started experimenting with burning on other materials.

I did some research & figured if I could find materials that are safe to burn I was going to experiment.

I tried Tagua nuts but discovered this wasn't for me. Many people enjoy burning on them but it just didn't do anything for me so I moved on.

When I first started burning I tried gourds & at the time I didn't like it but many years later I took a stab at it & decided it was pretty nice so I kept at it.

Some other things I enjoyed burning on was leather & canvas. Both are fun & safe as long asLeather Key Fob you take care that the leather is vegetable tanned & the canvas is untreated.

Some really fun projects that make great gifts are leather key fobs & book marks.

One of the roses I did on wood I decided to experiment with on canvas. It was challenging but I had a great time doing it & it turned out pretty nice. I was also asked to write an article about burning on canvas by Fox Chapel Publishing for the 3rd edition of their Pyrography Magazine.

NOTE ABOUT BURNING ON CANVAS: The canvas bag I used was untreated 100% cotton canvas. Be sure to check before you buy that it is untreated. You will also want to iron it before attempting to burn. I also suggest you place a piece of wood (plywood is good) below the area you are burning to avoid burning through to the other side & burn gently & in layers until you achieve the depth of color you want to avoid burning a hole.

Hone Strop.

WD400 - Strop

MY RECOMMENDATION!

These strops are unique because of the special rubber-like material used on the strop. This material eliminates the inconsistencies of leather and will greatly outlast leather strops.  The strop surface can be renewed periodically with a little detergent and water. Each strop is bound to a wooden handle and has a round edge. These are great for honing carving tools and wood burning tips. 

This is what I use to clean my Razertip pens along with #WD402 Aluminum oxide powder.

RETAIL PRICE: $16.95

OUR PRICE: $15.75

Option
   
Aluminum Oxide Powder.

WD402 - Aluminum Oxide Polishing Compound - 1 oz.

MY RECOMMENDATION!

This powder is pure aluminum oxide powder without any wax binders. It comes in a one ounce jar and will go a long way. Just a tiny pinch of the abrasive powder on your strop will maintain your carving tools and wood burning tips. This is what I used & recommend to clean my Razertip pens along with the #WD400 Strop.

This jar will last for years!
