Introduction: Multipul Gauge Soldering Pen
This was based on stone3408's instructable of the soldering kit and then i walked past a multi colour pen and thort why not. Umm i kinda did it it in 5 mins so on each instruction ill add in an OPTION: which will tell you ways to make it better.
This is my first instructable. enjoy :P

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
1. Multi colour pen(easily bought from any $2 shop or cheapo place)
2. Difrent size solder wire ;P if u dnt no where to ge this go back this is pointless or read on :)
Use the materials said in the options through this instructable.
P.S. I love my smileys :P :) :( >:)
Step 2: Demolish That Littel Pen!!!
WE all no that every instructable you need to be able to take apart or demolish something.... Well its time to do it to a pen!!
Ok well unscrew the pen adn then pull out all the ink cartridges (i left one in to try and make it drawable while i work. It didnt work very gud).
OPTIONS: IF your pen don't screw out then i dunno chop it or somthing.. You are all smart people just use ya brain ;) Soz my com wont swap the pictures to the right order sorry :P
Step 3: Solder Time :P
OK now choose your dif size solder and then you can either place straight into it like i did. Or you can use blue tac to make it stronger down bottom or if u can find somethign thin coil it up so you don't have to refil after evry use.
rememebr this sint the most versotile way of despensing solder but if u can coil it and git it to work it should go well. and hopefully people will add onto this idea so we have the best solder pen despenser lol >:)
Step 4: Finish It Up
Now simple screw the lid back on and you can write wat size on the pushy down bits if you want now push it down and u got ur size gauge... remembr this is m first it wasnt great but if you can try to improve on it aye
cheers nato :P
