Redesigning the soldering iron! Answered

Hi, we’re a team of engineering undergrads hoping to redesign the soldering iron. Specifically, we’re looking at making it safer and more usable by younger teens and children.

We’re looking for any feedback or advice you might have, especially if you have kids, so if you can spare a few minutes to fill out our survey, that’d be awesome. Or if you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email at: solder.otter@gmail.com. Thank you for your time and input!

also, does anyone know why there is so much metal exposed towards the tip?

Soldering Irons are like chain saws they are as safe as they are going to get.

Make a cold conductive solder instead.

The exposed metal on an iron is to store heat without transferring that heat into an insulator, and it is cheaper to build giving the maker a higher profit line.
