In this instructable, you will learn how to me a solder pen. While soldering, lead gets heated and burns our hands. So I made this solder pen to get rid of the burns.

Step 1: Tools Required

BOM (bill of materials):
solder
ball point pen
gel pen
spring

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.

    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 ?
