Default burning tool

I have a burning tool and I havent used it in a few years. I went to use it and it doesnt work. So, I was wondering if this thing uses batteries or works by some other means. I hope there is a way I can fix it.....any advice would be great!

This will sound like a pretty dumb answer, but if there's a cord/plug end out the back it's .. if not. Batteries. Now the question is how do you get at the damned things?

I'll bet you don't need pliers. Look it over good. There is probably a way to get it off with less force. Look for a tiny screw in the plastic, or ridges for a good thumb grip.

Sorry about my first post but the burning tool thing was almost more than I could resist.

Ok, Ok ... I'm taking bets as to how long this thread goes before it gets pulled.

I'll start:

Question: "What do you give a man who has everything?"

Answer: 10,000 units of Penie Cilin?


Sorry Tam, but DD and I are going back and forth with bad jokes. Funny as all heck, but 'bad' never the less. Welcome to the Asylum!

"Abby something." Love the movie and the huge rings on the castle door: Looking at her ... you know what's ... "Those are great knockers." Maybe you have to be 70 to know the reference?

Priceless one liners. Priceless!

getting back on track

the cauterizer you have runs on batteries and are really hard to change out as they are meant to be thrown out. they are most used in the medical profession.

if you really need to use one (apparently you didnt) then just buy a new one that has replaceable tips and batteries

you can get one here

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

I also have one of these, the medical type.
Someone on the UK forum sold a few a year or two back.
They are as mentioned a sealed unit, and are meant to be discarded when the batteries run flat, BUT, you can get round it and replace the batteries fairly easily.
If you use a sharp Stanley knife/craft knife, and gently make a cut around the plastic cylinder approx one inch from the battery end, you can replace them.
Once installed, hold the end cap tightly and put some electrical insulation tape around the cut section to keep it in place until the next time.
I did it myself in about ten minutes, you could use a fine tooth hacksaw if you prefer, just go gently.
These burners are far too good to bin, and you can get many more years out of them with this trick.
Either that, or start dating a nurse!!
