Mini Cotton Candy Machine Heat Source?
I built the cotton candy machine (seen here: https://www.instructables.com/id/cotton-candy-machine/) and everything works as it should, except the sugar doesn't melt easily. I have to stop the motor and heat it up intermittently, instead of the intended use of being able to have it spin continuously. I have a feeling that part of this reason is because my lighter can't get hot enough, and that the machine is on a dremel. It only goes 6,500 rpm but I have a feeling this is too fast for the sugar to heat up. Any ideas? I took apart an old soldering iron and have the heat source, but I don't know how to mount it. Or does anybody know where I might find something to attach the CCM to a regular motor? Thanks!
