Features of the Colwood Olympiad Burner

If you're looking for a wood burner that can handle the widest range of materials, you'll want to check out the Olympiad.
This Colwood wood burner is designed specifically for materials that need extra heat to burn properly. Whether you're working with delicate papers or thick card stock, the Olympiad can handle it.
Anyone who has ever used a wood burner knows that a consistent burn is essential for a good outcome.
Unfortunately, many wood burners on the market today are subject to voltage spikes that can make it difficult to get an even burn.
However, the manufacturers of the Olympiad have figured out how to compensate for these spikes. The result is a wood burner that can provide a consistent burn, even when the line voltage is fluctuating. If you're looking for a burner that will give you the best results, be sure to look for one with voltage spike protection circuitry. It's the key to getting perfect wood burning results every time.
And because it has such a wide heat range, you can be sure that your materials will be evenly and thoroughly heated. As a result, you'll get clean, consistent burns every time.
The Olympiad is proud to include a 120V 10amp receptacle, located on the back of the unit. This receptacle can be used to power a variety of accessories, including lamps, fans, and tools. The electrical outlet is powered whether your wood burner unit is on or off. As long as you have the unit plugged in, you have power. With this new feature, the Olympiad is sure to be a hit with pyrographers and carvers alike.
Thanks to the extra power outlet, users will no longer have to worry about tripping over cords or running out of outlets. In addition, the 120V 10amp receptacle is UL-listed, ensuring that it meets the highest safety standards.
The front of the Olympiad burner has an on/off switch that is lighted so you can see whether your woodburning pen is powered or not.
There is a dial control that controls the temperature of the tip. The control goes from "0" to "10". Start by testing a medium setting and adjusting your heat as necessary. You'll be surprised at how little heat you need to accomplish your task.
The middle of the unit features the receptacle for the Olympiad woodburning cords.
