Russian Burn Out Art

A burn-out art from Russia 1

Look at this device on the picture above. I wonder if there is a suitable name for it in English in Russia they called it “a burner out machine”. It was used to make drawings on the plywood, by plugging it into electricity outlet and making the needle at the end of this handle red-hot.
