Our new Farmhand branding furnace follows on from the traditional design of these devices, but with some improvements for ease of use. The one-piece snap-in legs are firm and stable, and the one-piece handle-frame and brands-rest snaps into place. The all-steel furnace body is lined with a special cement-based ‘fire-brick’ product to retain and reflect maximum heat. (The burning chamber is filled with styrene to protect the fire-brick in transit. This must be removed before use.) The fire brick refractory can be replaced (see below). Instructions are included. All parts are interchangeable with traditional furnaces. This furnace has a 30cm brands opening, and a single gas burner. Can heat two numbers and a 3-piece brand together.
Stainless-steel brands are most suitable for heat branding. But can be used for freeze branding if required (with possibly less-perfect results). Full ten-piece set. Handles are 56cm long. Digits weight approx 600gm each.
