Soldering iron using wax candle and copper wire

Posted on 21st June, 2019

I do not have much scope of using a soldering iron as I am scared of dealing with electricity. However, I wanted to see if soldering can be done with a wax candle.

 

Candle soldering iron
I glued 2 pieces of wood as in the picure. Fixed a copper wire horizontally from the vertical piece of wood. Lit candle is used from below to heat up the wire near the tip.
The copper wire becomes hot enough to melt the soldering wire.


A gas lighter can also be used to make a soldering iron by tying a copper wire on the nozzle and used like a soldering gun.
