"Great product. Although I am very new to pyrography, I wanted a sturdy and reliable 'starter pack' to learn with. This machine, despite seeming to be more expensive than other pyrography sets, is very good indeed. The pen is very comfortable to use and you get extra nibs and wire. I'm pleased that I invested properly in this machine."

"I bought one of these last year for my husband and he was very pleased with it as had used some of the cheaper versions and found them to be limited due to the lack of temperature control. This year I also bought one for my father as he is also very interested in wood craft. He has been using it since he got it and is very pleased with his first attempts at pyrography. Thanks very much for the speedy delivery as well!!!"

"This pyrography machine is a great piece of kit. It seems very robust yet is capable of very fine work. It comes with a few fine tips and one spoon-shaped bit. Guidance for making more tips is widely available on the internet and the wire necessary is cheap and readily available. I would like there to be a wider range of tips available to buy because some of the specialist ones are a bit difficult to make. "

"First class unit. Bought this after trying a cheap Chinese version. No overheating with the Peter Childs model, which exudes a general feeling of quality and longevity. Fortunately Turners Retreat also stock all the accessories and spares one could require, coupled with an excellent service record. "

"I have been using the Peter Childs pyrography machine over the last few weeks and can say I have been very impressed by it's capabilities. I really like that you can make your own tips and that the machine comes with a small booklet suggesting ideas on various tips. I have found the variable temperature marvellous and rarely go above 5 as this is excellent heat for me. The pen shape is great and does not heat up uncomfortably when I am working over an extended period of time. The price is very reasonable for this machine and the possibilities are endless. One final point. It has the mark of quality because Robert Sorby have taken on the manufacture. Brilliant!"

"I bought this pyrography machine as a birthday present for my wife. Up until now she has not used it but she will when time permits. Our daughter bought the same machine many years ago so we know how good they are, and my wife has used our daughters machine many times in the past. Our daughter is now married and has moved away, the reason for buying my wife her own Peter Child pyrography machine."

"My review is based on being new to pyography and never having used other makes to compare with the Peter Child machine. The machine looks good, and well made, the heat is controlled by a rheostat so doesn't feel as smooth as a digital controller but is ok. On and off switch light is not very bright. I found the pen to be comfortable though it does get hot using thicker wire tips, I prefer using approx 1mm wire, but fine and medium wire are ok. I would like a spare pen but at £38 Perhaps later. Woods I have used are Pine and Birch ply, the machine works well for me and I am happy with the purchase, though I would like to try other makes to compare."

"This is arguably the best hot wire pyrography unit and in my opinion gives the greatest control for detailed work. The unit arrived on time, well packed and allowed me to create a wedding present for my wife’s friend - excellent equipment from an excellent supplier"

"Great service, delivery took a little longer than I expected but I'm so happy I waited. The product is fantastic, well boxed and well presented. I've used a few of the soldering iron types of unit and the Peter Child machine blows them out of the water for detail and temperature control. In short it's amazing, thank you"
