Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.
During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

This machine is used for pyrography (such as wood/leather burning).
To use, make sure you're working in a well ventilated area. Don't use pine (too resinous), MDF (possibly toxic fumes), non-vegetable-dyed leather (risk of chromium fumes from chromium tanning solution). Preferably work on a heat-protected surface.
Set dial to 0 on the machine. Plug it in. Turn on switch. Very slowly and patiently wait for it to heat up when you turn the dial. I've found 1 to 1.5 is fine for leather pyrography. You don't want to go too high or else you'll just scorch the surface and possibly catch fire.
