Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Preparing Paper Clip

First You must bend paper clip like on photo, then heat lower "legs" over fire (I used lighter).

Step 2: Finishing

When lower part of paper clip is hot (don't touch it!) push it into candle. It should be few milimeters (or more) under surface of candle. After this it should look like on the photo.
That's everything, your iron soldering stand is now ready!

PS That was my first tutorial, if You find any mistakes or have some tips, please write a comment :)

    Just FYI.
    Good tutorial.
    However, I see a misspelling in the 2nd section.

    First you must bed paperclip
    First you must bend paperclip.

    Otherwise everything looks great! nice work! The misspelling is not a big deal, the meaning is easily understood. Just thought you should know!

    Good idea! Nice job!
