>I'm trying to make a custom woodburning tip like the ones described in the Pyrography article by Molly Winton in the articles section. Got some NiCr wire but am having problems with the copper nails. Why use copper and not brass or copper plated steel? I know that copper is the second most conductive element and that silver (the most conductive)nails are reserved for vampires. My homecenter now carries plated nails for use with copper plumbing supplies and the only other copper nails I can find are very small.
So why copper? Is it just for conductivity?
