Brass Branding Iron

Thought I’d share some close-ups of my branding iron that didn’t make the cut for my video. Material is 360 Brass. Handle is zebrawood (I think), turned (slowly and amateurish-ly) on a lathe.

Cutting time was ~45 minutes per face + tool changes. Feeds & speeds: ~14 IPM, 0.1-0.2 mm DOC (varied by endmill) @ 10k RPM. Uncoated carbide endmills.

For the full, long and drawn out walkthrough of my process, see:


I watched this video on your feed. Great job Winston, thanks for all of your tips and best of luck on your future ventures.
