I love soldering with a torch. It's useful for all kinds of applications, and it's a great way to join metal that's too big for a soldering iron, but too small for a proper torch.

This is a basic introduction to the art, and should get you soldering in no time!

Step 1: Tools and Materials

-Butane torch
-Cigarette Lighter
-Wire Cutters
-“Third Hand” Tool
-Safety Glasses

-Copper Wire
-Lead-Free solder
I am so confused about soldering, will someone please help.
Torch soldering or with an iron? What are you confused about, maybe I can shed some light on the subject.
Third hand thingie, where can I find it? Love them both that you created
Good info here. I learned this technique to make some jewelry for a friend and then realized how useful it is in so many other projects.
the octopus is wickedly cool
Thanks! It's definitely one of my favorite pieces.
