reflow sharpie pen
My sharpie pen dried out so I tried running it under hot water. That didn't work and I knew if I used the lighter trick it would just burn the felt tip and ruin it. So I came up with this.
Materials:
1.Sharpie Pen
2. Soldering iron
3.Paper

Step 1: Heat

heat up the metal on the tip of sharpie. Be careful not to touch the felt tip because they will melt. I had my Weller soldering iron on 55. I would start lower it was just the first temp I tried.

Step 2: WRITE!!!
