Heat-Set Insert Tip

Heat-set and soldering tip.jpg
Status: finished
Release Date: 2021/9
Initiator: Luzian
Materials Used: M8 brass threaded rod
Tools Used: Metal Lathes


For my Voron build I needed to use heat-set inserts. There exist special brass tips but I couldn't find any that fit the style of tip used on my soldering iron so I decided to make my own on the lathe. I found some left over M8 threaded rod out of brass which is great because it conducts heat and can be machined easily after the threads are gone.
