Cool instructable...
Is that the refill of the pen ?

giusepp3 (author)sharktooth2016-02-08

Yeah, this is like a pen refil. More like the inner tube of a automatic pencil.

guy, i think d straw will melt on sensing high temperature

giusepp3 (author)AjayeobaI2016-02-08

The plastic straw just conduces the gas, the tip is made of metal and its why it doesn´t melt (:

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.
