MIG Soldering Iron Concept

the plan is to modify a existing soldering iron remove the tip have a small nozzle at the front (made of a thick disk of metal, drilled with a normal bit until a small hole is poked, thus making a cone nozzle)(thinner than what i put in the picture, because the taper should be 45 degrees) the area where the tip is screwed in to will be where the solder liquidfies a hole will be drilled above that for a flexible copper tube to guide solder in the tube will be heat sinked so the solder only liquidfies when it is near the chamber the solder will be feed with some sort of unreeling mechanism or something that is controlled by a button the feed will be guided to the copper tube via another sort of tubing the pressure of adding solder will force the liquid solder out the nozzle the goal is to have a tiny drop of liquid solder, small enough for average through hole soldering, come out with a press of a button. flux should be applied before. does anybody see anything wrong that could happen with my concept? does anybody have other ideas and suggestions? had this been thought of before?

I saw it on another site in the UK for about ten pounds, (I don't have the UK currency symbol for pounds handy). Good luck!

frank, I have a bit of good news for you. I have a picture of a HAKKO solder wire feeder. This is used to feed wire solder through rollers similar to the way wire is fed through a mig welder. i will try to post a pic, this is my first post in this forum so I'll "try" to post. Good luck with your idea.
