Walnut Hollow 42099 Tool Review

After a bit of research, I decided to try the Walnut Hollow 42099. It includes 2 wood burning pens, one regulator, and 10 additional points all for one price. Add versatility to your crafts, allowing the use of two tools with different tips at the same time. 

Use different points for different techniques, each point creates a unique texture and line on the wood. The regulator and points can be used with any Walnut Hollow Hot Tools. This pen is fitted with a U.S.A two pin plug for 120V outlets hence anyone out of the U.S.A  will need to get an adapter like I did.

Who is this for

The woodburner value pen in particular is the perfect pen for anyone wishing to learn wood burning or those needing a new reliable pen. The heat shield helps protect your hand from the heat while working, especially for those not used to the heat. The 10 additional points make this tool very ideal for professional wood burners as they know their way around the craft

POINTS (tips)

These replacement tips allow you to use different for different burning techniques. Each point creates a unique texture and line on the wood. All of the points included are interchangeable with all Walnut Hollow Hot tools so if you have another tool from Walnut Hollow all the more convenient for you.

The Universal point performs all fundamental wood burning techniques. The Flow point is used to burn curves, dots, and fine details; it works well for cursive writing. The Cone point is used to burn fine lines, dots, and curves. The Shading point creates smooth, even shading gradations or dark, bold shading.


  • Easy to use
  • Considerably high temperatures can be reached
  • Comes with a power regulator 
  • Comes with 10 more tips
  • Lightweight
  • Has a heat shield to protect hands


  • Will not work for customers out of the U.S.A without adapters

Dual Plug

This power regulator allows the use of two tools with different points(tips) at the same time. It has a weighted base with non-skid feet for added safety and ease of use. The 400W output maintains a consistent tool temperature. Easy to read dial with on/off indicator and equipped with two three-prong outlets. Extends the reach of your tool when working on larger projects 


With that powerful Power regulator, you can rest assured that your tool will last a very long time.


As stated above the tool has two hot pens but comes with a high-quality dual plug-in power regulator to control the temperature of your pens, reaching a maximum temperature of 950 degrees. It also comes with 10 more tips to make your work easy and bring out the best in you, you can get extra tips on top of these 10 but for me, they are everything I need in the little work I spend woodburning, I haven’t even used them all yet. The two pens make sure that you get results even without experience as they include an easy to use value pen

Our Verdict

In its industry, it does a great job of beating the competition. I give this product 4 stars out of 5. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to start or is a professional wood burner as it has everything you could possibly need.
