Step 1: Solder Iron Assembled
All three parts when assembled.
Put copper wire inside antena pipe with same diameter. I grinded it a little to be able to fit inside. At the other end put steel wire with same diameter.
Step 2: How to Use
Use it with candle.
Put the flame only to copper.
Clean copper part for best effect.
I use it for years, becouse of easy conceilability and travel sizes.
It works great, heats fast - in about 15 sec.
Its usable with other sources of flame like alcohol.
I have made upgrade to electric for stationary use - just one old fuse(ceramic) and heater wire (cantal) from old water heater. Only 24 volts, becouse of open wires.
