I recall seeing a soldering iron demo at Datyon one year, that used liquid
fuel, something like lighter fluid, that contained a miniature blowtorch
that heated a real honest-to-God copper soldering tip. It took it only a
few seconds warm up, and worked just like an electric soldering iron. It was
about the same size as 150-watt electric job. That's what I thought of
first upon hearing about a "Coleman soldering iron."
I have actually tried to solder using the same technique as the one
described earlier, when the tip on my Weller soldering gun would break it
two. I had almost identical results. Ended up making an emergency
replacement tip out of a piece of #10 or #12 bare copper wire.
