Step 1: Tools Required

BOM (bill of materials):

gel pen

Step 2: Step 1

Take ball point pen and remove its refill. you can even use small stick thinner than gel pen's refill.

Step 3: Step 2

Take some solder and wind it around ball pen's refill or stick.

Step 4: Step 3

Open gel pen and insert spring

Step 5: Step 4

carefully remove solder off the refill and insert it in gel pen

Step 6: Step 5

Insert solder in cap and screw the cap.

Step 7: Done!!!

Solder pen is ready for you to use.

    I kinda dont get how the solder will get heated and extended at the open end when the tip is all melted up. please explain.

    In reality it's even more than 2 cm. I usually pull around 5cm out of my tube to get more space for maneuvers, which is why solder doesn't get hot enough to melt the pen tip(nozzle).

    you have to remove 2 cm and melt only 1.8 cm so that you can pull it by 0.2cm
    measurement can be changed

    Hmm this gives me an idea how about modding a mechanical pencil to eject the lead when we press the plunger ?
