A very useful tool, this HOT POINT CAUTERISER from the United States generates 2200 degrees of heat.
This is NOT a disposable tool - the batteries can be replaced when necessary.
This Hot Point cautery takes two AA batteries - simply press the button on the side of the tool and the element will glow red hot - excellent for zapping stray hackle fibres getting in the way of the eye of the hook, cleaning up deer hair stubs, heat kinking spanflex legs on patterns, etc, etc.
For a little more control over the heat, I suggest you use one new battery and one almost exhausted battery - and the trick is to hold the element close to the item you wish to singe off rather than pushing the element into the material.
