    hiueheiuhei you are right, i just modificated the lighter so I stoped burning my fingers


    haha no problem!

    Looks like something Macgyver would make. Does it actually work? Because to solder something properly, you need to make contact with the part you're soldering. With this you would be dripping melted solder onto the project. I could see this working for plumbing since you soldering copper pipe joints. Cool idea though.
