5-in-1 Wood Branding Iron in Brass

About: Maker, adventurer, aerospace enthusiast. Digital fabrication evangelist.

I scoured the internet to learn how to make myself a branding iron that didn't require welding (to attach to a handle), but I wasn't satisfied with what I found. Although I applaud the makers who took the initiative and carved their own branding irons with Dremels, I thought we could do better, we have the technology. So here's my process for turning a block of brass into a branding iron that can be threaded onto a 1/4-20 rod using a desktop CNC.
