How How


Your not making a pen hot. Your making a pen with a blunt metal end hot using batteries. It's a matter of finding the right material that will get hot enough from a pair of AA batteries. Chances are that commercial product has a Teflon coating on the tip to allow it to flow over the material easier. Do a search for battery powered heating element.

Super super :)

I immediately thought with "battery powered heating element." IT :

This is great work track.

Thank you very much friend.

How about a soldering iron with a suitable tip, although you might need some form of dimmer inline to lower the heat.

Suggest you buy a gold or silver felt tip pen - they work just as well and MUCH cheaper.
