The Mechanical Pencil Solder Loader, just a cooler way to store/load your solder. Using a 0.7mm mechanical pencil and some 0.7mm solder, this little beautiful thing is made......
So, why would I need something like this? Wouldn't directly using solder from it's spool easier?
Well yeah but who knows? If you are someone who does electronic repairs outside, you wouldn't really want to bring a whole spool with you right? It'll be quite heavy and troublesome to hold them outside. But with the
Mechanical Pencil Solder Loader, you can easily store your solder and use them whenever you like!
In my opinion, this solder loader should go well with the USB Rechargeable Soldering Iron: Solderdoodle Pro!
You could bring both of them easily anywhere and use them whenever you like!
Anyways, this is just a strip(or strips) of 0.7mm solder loaded like pencil leads into a 0.7mm mechanical pencil.
Step 1: Preparing the Solder and the Mechanical Pencil.
Get a 0.7mm mechanical pencil that takes in 0.7mm leads and also a spool of 0.7mm diameter solder.
Then, cut the solder into smaller strips of about 10cm (4 inches). Cut a few so you won't run out of them that soon.
After cutting them into smaller strips straighten them so them can be easily loaded into the mechanical pencil.
Step 2: Load 'em In!
Take your solder 'leads' and load them into the mechanical pencil. After that put the cap back and start pressing to load the solder to the tip.
And now you're ready!
Step 3: Use 'em
To use the solder. Press until a length of solder is loaded out and use them to solder your components.
Step 4: Completed.
So that's the Mechanical Pencil Solder Loader! Thank you for reading this instructable. Have a good day!
