Awesome! I wonder if that's what the Friend Box Company was like at all.

I liked the homemade branding machine contraption with the rats nest of wires to electrically heat the brand, and also the homebrew advance mechanism.

Anyone know why magnesium was the material of choice for the branding plates?
