Mini lighter soldering iron
To assemble a mini soldering iron from a regular lighter, you need about 15 minutes of your time. With this soldering iron I can solder even the radio elements, even the wires. This homemade will definitely help you out in an emergency. You will need:Next, at one end we make this hook with a right angle. At a distance of about 2 cm from the windings.On the other side of the winding, we bite off the wire without any bends,at the same distance.The end is sharpened a little with sandpaper - this will be the soldering iron sting.Trying on a lighter.Around the lighter we make 5-7 layers of masking tape for thermal insulation of the lighter from the hot tip.Then we install the sting and fix it with the same masking tape.When installing the stinger, it is necessary to take into account that the center of the coil should look exactly into the hole of the lighter from which the flame exits. The soldering iron is ready.A very big plus of this craft is that no electric network is needed for soldering, which can be useful.For soldering it is better to use tubular solder with flux (rosin) inside. Also in the process of soldering, do not hold the lighter for a very long time in the burning mode. No more than 5 seconds. So that the pressure mechanism does not melt inside.
- - masking tape.
- - a small piece of thick copper wire 1-3 mm.
- - gas lighter, ordinary. It is better to take with a piezoelectric element.
Making a soldering iron from a lighterTake a thick wire and wind a pencil or a ballpoint pen. We make 4-6 turns, then pull out a pencil.
How to use?It is very simple to use. Lit the lighter, wait a couple of seconds, release the button and solder. As soon as the sting begins to cool down, we immediately repeat the ignition for a few seconds and continue.
