full time metal fabricator/artist

Time lapse of my soldering iron heating up

I was making some stencils for a comissioned art piece, there were some tight rounded corners that I wanted to burn in to create smooth transitions in the lines, but I didn’t have an appropriate solder tip.

So I made one with the same technique I sharpen my tungsten electrodes for tig welding, the project created it’s own backdrop as I decided to do this time lapse of fresh shiny copper being heated up, picture taken every 3 seconds, mildly interesting and only 7 seconds long.

I’ll be sharing photos of the comissioned work soon.

Thanks for reading.
More to come.
