I need help with the entire concept of a "transfer tool". I've currently got a Lenk L25TT 25 Watt transfer tool. Nothing transfers. I think I'm doing it right. I print out my design on my laser printer, which uses dry toner, put the drawing face down on wood and, after the tool has had time to heat up, I press it on the design.
I've tried moving the tool fast, slow, agonizingly slow and even standing it in one place, but if any transfer occurs (and I stress the IF) it's small isolated patches that do me no good. I even tried a desperate move and dug an old electric clothes iron out of my closet and tried that on a variety of settings, up to scorching the paper. I tried plywood and, just in case the texture made a difference, I also tried a piece of pine that had been sanded. The results were identical.
Am I doing something wrong or is the entire concept flawed?
Thanks in advance
