In some crafter's lingo this tool is called a Bunny Burner, named after the
woman who developed it. It is much like a wood burning tool and indeed,
does get very hot. I use this flat disc tool to transfer photocopy images
to carving material that I use to create my own "rubber" stamps. This
method is much less aggravating than acetone transfer and with a little
practice, works consistently and isn't messy or toxic.
