Walnut Hollow 42099 Tool Review [UPDATED]

After a bit of research, I decided to try the Walnut Hollow 42099. It includes two pyrography pens, one regulator, and ten extra points 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. You can use the regulator and points 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 as 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 ten additional points make this tool ideal for professional wood burners as they know their way around the craft. The heat shield helps protect your hand while working, especially for those not used to the heat.

POINTS (tips)

These replacement tips allow you to use different burning techniques. Each point creates a unique texture and line on the wood. All 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 woodburning techniques. The Cone point burns fine lines, dots, and curves. The Flow point is used to burn curves, dots, and fine details; it works well for cursive writing. The Shading point creates smooth, even shading gradations or dark, bold shading.

Pros 

  • Easy to use
  • You can reach considerably high temperatures
  • It comes with a power regulator 
  • It comes with ten more tips
  • Lightweight
  • Has a heat shield to protect hands

Cons

  • It 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) simultaneously. 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 

Durability

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

Accessories

As stated above, the Walnut Hollow 42099 has two hot pens. The two pens ensure that you get results without experience as they include an easy-to-use value pen. Still, it 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 ten 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.

Our Verdict of the Walnut Hollow 42099

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 need. In its industry, it does a great job of beating the competition.
