Wood burning pen source?

Dominic Greco in Richboro PA
>Hi everyone,

For give me if I have asked this question before. I saved much of my woodworking info on my old hard drive and it isn't until I look for it that I realize that it's gone.

I'm looking for sources for wood burning pens. Most notably with the 10A type tip as sold by Woodcarver's Supply. Now I know that Woodcarver's Supply sells these pens. That's not the problem. What I've found is that their standard pens (Like the one supplied with my Burnmaster Hawk) get very hot, and are uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time.

When I asked this very question a couple years ago, I seem to remember someone (it may have been Art Liestman and Molly Winton) recommending the Detail master pens. But I'm not sure if I have the right one here. I'm looking for a pen that won't roast the tips of my fingers while I'm using it! :>)

Anybody have any recommendations?
