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

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

    I think it would be alright with a little bit of chat-ish language for an element of humor, but it got a little annoying to read by the end. I think this is a really cool idea though if you could get more solder to fit in it.

    in this we can solder any wire also


    I don't think this would work to well. You could only have a inch or so of solder coming out of the pen, and then you would have to open up the pen to get to the rest of it.

    hmm. yea i got that problem a little so i just drilled a hole and added a conister to the side so the solder can curl up. Im jsut working on the clicking mechanism to push more out :P Nato

    language is bad, it might be a good idea to do a DIY english, but its the idea that matters. as for the instrucable itself, nice idea. its a little pointless, because you can by small cannisters based on the same principle, but its nice and refreshing to see a simple DIY once in a while.
