Intro: How to Print on Wood
This project was inspired by Jay's video here
Step 1: Make a Custom Tip
Grind the head of a carriage bolt flat
Sand it smooth
Step 2: Modify the Soldering Iron
Start by unscrewing the tip,
Then measure the diameter of the 'shank'.
Step 3: Installing the Custom Tip
The bolt is now filled down and cut to fit into the soldiering iron, i commend keeping it short about 10 mm or 1/4" .
Step 4: Transfer Your Design
I printed a flipped design off at school as I don't own a laser printer that uses toner ,this is essential for this to work.
Then I taped one side to my work piece then rubbing the paper with the iron a few times.
This cold be improved in many ways;
-making the tip shorter
-using car engine valve
