Cleaning Replaceable Tips

If you are looking for a simple way to clean off the carbon build up on your woodburning tips, then you need this honing paper. This honing paper is a 600 grit paper which means it is rough enough that you will only need to slightly rub it against your wood burning tips to clear all the carbon build up away.

Not cleaning your wood burning tips will result in damaging your woodburning tips and lessen the life span. If there is too much carbon build up you will not be able to woodburn with sufficient temperatures which will make your woodburning projects harder due to the heat fluctuation. 

 You can also use the Colwood cleaning burrs, simply insert the burr into your 1/8" collet on your handpiece, and you'll be able to remove carbon buildup in seconds. This will help keep your tips functioning properly for longer and give you more hours of comfortable burning.

These are the best methods because it quickly and easily removes all the soot and residue from your tip, so you can continue your project with ease.  

Having a clean woodburning tip will help to produce cleaner lines while wood burning.
