Magnetic Soldering Aid

Introduction: Magnetic Soldering Aid

About: Retired to age but still working. I work a lot with technical constructions and manufacturing for my own part and for the school. Everything from furniture to machine parts. Has a workshop with among others ...

Magnetic soldering aid.

Tools for holding together steel wires during soldering. Mainly intended to be used in the construction of ball tracks. Ø1.5 - Ø3 mm. The parts are glued with epoxy adhesive or soldered together. A hole should be threaded M3.

The magnets should be facing North towards the south.With the screw you set a distance which is the sum of the two threads diameter.The wires are magnetized North and South respectively and are drawn to each other.


Magnetisk Lödhjälp.
Verktyg för att hålla samman ståltrådar vid lödning. Främst tänkt att användas vid konstruktion av kulbanor. Ø1,5 - Ø3 mm. Delarna limmas med epoxilim respektive löds samman. Ett hål ska gängas M3.

Magneterna ska vara vända Norr mot Söder. Med skruven ställer man in ett avstånd som är summan av de två trådarnas diameter. Trådarna magnetiseras Norr respektive Söder och dras till varandra.

    You should move the magnets far from the soldering. Heat does destroy the magnets. Don't ask how I know.

    The magnets just get a little warm not hot. Steel conducts heat rather poorly. The Curie Point is above 130 ° C (266 ° F). But you are right, that magnets are destroyed if they get too hot. I have tried solder magnets and it is possible if you do it quickly.
