      I'd love to see a closer pict of the heads of the irons. Look different from the ones I usually see.

      Nice looking heater for them BTW.

        Nice work on the brands. Looks even on the test wood.
        That heater, is it a propane weed burner?

          yes it is, we call them tiger torches here in Alberta, not sure why seeing as its to cold in the winter time for tigers

          DSW I rap the ends like that so the brands dont roll when they are put in the pot. If one part of the brand isnt getting hot then you can flip them over to the other side(if you know what I mean??) it also feels good in your hand it gives some weight to the end of the iron, kind of like good golf clubs, its hard to explain unless you pick them up yourself, if you make a set try it and you will see what I mean,the last reason is because the are very rugged irons, they dont bend very easy, even if and when the iron is hot the heads dont bend making for uneven brands.
          The picture kind of shows what I am trying to say, I can flip the brands over to the other side with out them rolling back

            You needed to make a flat spot on the top of the heater for calf fries

              I already did, thats whats on the end on the very top, its just a small little frying pan, I would have made it bigger buy the rancher just wanted a little one?? so I made that one.

                Thanks that makes it easier to see. I like the look of them and they certainly look sturdy. I didn't think that the wraps were just those little joint hiders that they use on metal fence pickets and such.

                  Dan Dan Dan, I thought a man of your distinction would know why a Tiger torch is called a Tiger Torch! If you look on the end of the torch you will be amazed to know that Tiger is the company and wait for it Made in Airdrie. I found out from my dad he insists that's the only thing Airdrie is famous for. Oh yeah and Lynx Welding of course but that goes without saying!!! It's a balmy -36c thins morn might go plow the driveway for sh**'s and giggles!

                    Well kook at that, I never knew that, hmm who'd thunk eh! ya that Lynx welding is the poster "BOY" for welding !! He should have his own reality show, in Airdrie, I heard he welds for Paul Brant all the time. We'll most likely see him in the next Ford truck commercial, Maybe a singing welder reality show is in the works

                    -17 here today its real windy!! so it must be up around -30ish bad day to be a welder

                      I'm surprised there are three separate irons.

                      I wouldn't think the cattle would be very happy after the first one!!

                          Well Fred, usually when the branding is going on it is a great time to make steers out of the little bull calves. Take the calfs nuts and peel the thick layer of hide off of it and throw them on the stove, let them fry just a little and then GULP their gone

                          Must be a country boy thang HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

                              Those are some good looking irons, I like the way you wrapped the wire on them. Good looking heater also.

                              As far as irons go, no I dont need any but thanks for the offer. I don't brand, only tattoo the ears. I raise registered charolais myself.

                              You do any ranching??
