I want to make a small branding iron to mark my bee hives , and am looking for suggestions for what /how to do that . I was thinking about using something like 1/16 x 1/2 inch iron , but am unsure whether to heat and bend to shape or to weld small strips . There will be at least one shape that must be bent , the number 2 . I have a logo designed , consists of a nested A and W , with a 1 & a 2 in the vees of the W for "The 12 Acre Wood" . It's been suggested to bend it up from heavy wire , but I'm not sure that'll be rigid enough to get a uniform imprint on the flat wood surfaces . Any alternative suggestions ?
