I have tried something similar with steel wool and a Radio Shack desoldering iron. But it doesn't work well. I have real hot air tools so maybe I"m spoiled. However, for bigger parts, an "embossing gun" from the local hobby store (about $20) does a great job. If you could fit a cheap tip on it, it'd be even better.

yesterday I finally got around to actually think about this for a while. I have thought up my own design that I'll try to get around to making. Unfortunately I am really low on $ and am to young to get a job. >:(  ;D
