For a few years now, I have accumulated an assortment of Detailmaster pyrography handpieces. Mainly this is because the local Woodcraft store stocks them and a selection of tips. Iâ€™ve been happy with them except for one thingâ€¦ those darned cords attached to each handpiece. 1) They are difficult to wrap up and they make the handpieces messy to store neatly. 2) They get tangled whenever I am swapping 2 or 3 different handpieces while working on a design. 3) They have been known to pull handpieces to the floor because of tangling or even the hanging weight. In April, I attended a workshop with Cynthia Gibson. She uses the Razertip products and I was impressed with how she was able to store all of her handpieces in a toolroll-type bundle. None of those 5â€™ cords to get in the way. I even bought one of the Razertip ball-end handpieces from her. Different feel, but nice; I wonâ€™t hesitate to add more from Razertip, but I wonâ€™t be getting rid of my Detailmasters... This past Sunday, I cut the cord(s), both figuratively and literally. Radio Shack carries male and female RCA-style plugs like the Razertip uses. I went with the solder-type attachment because of the high connect/disconnect frequency. Viola! My cord problem is solved. The plugs come with both red and black in each package; I decided to use the red for all fixed-tip handpieces and black for interchangeable tips. I then spent a number of hours working on the bowl in the background of the attached photo after the conversion and didnâ€™t notice anything different with the balance or maneuverability of the modified handpieces.
