Optional Heating Tool Choices

The above Branding Head can be used with any of the following heating tool options:


Heavy-Duty Fire-heated Iron Handle
Brand the old-fashioned way with the fire-heated handle. Inexpensive and simple to use.

Hexacon BI-350
Our finest quality heating tool. Made in the USA and highly durable, the BI-350 is built to take anything you can throw at it, ideal for day to day use. There isn't an iron on the market that can match the BI-350.

Hexacon DP-350
The same quality heating tool as the BI-350, only designed to be used on a drill press. With self-leveling technology the DP-350 is ideal for factories and home garages alike.

PRO-1000 Propane Heating Tool
The PRO-1000 is like a Fire-heated Handle with it's own built in fire supply. It's ideal for use when electricity is not available and the tool of choice for those who work in the field.

Adding a Temperature Control Unit
A Temperature Control Unit allows the user to find and set just the right degree of heat for any specific application. This accessory regulates the amount of power transferred into the heating element so the user can better control how dark the branded mark will be. A temperature control is a smart investment as it not only promotes continuous consistent marks, it also prolongs the life of the electric heating tools (BI-350, DP-350 only).
