I suspect that it would be possible to do the trick, my ears, buddy, but I would advise you to try a gas soldering iron, their prices are not so expensive and they will always be useful in the garage. Regards
I made a soldering and welding machine as shown here in the photos, but the heating temperature is still too low because the welded plastics do not stick together only on the surface, which gives less strength. So what power should the heater used for this soldering iron be, and where can you buy such a ceramic tube ???
Hi. I bought this tube in an electrical accessories store. Only it was longer and I cut it into three parts. Such ceramic tubes were once used for so-called heating suns. I used a 600W heating coil. The temperature is largely up to from the air pressure that flows through the heater. I do not know what heater you used, but I still use the temperature regulator (simple on a triac) to reduce the temperature. it is welding because the plastic melts to the sides and it should only melt. I, when making this soldering iron, modeled on a similar one made by my friend who has been working plastics professionally for 8 years and he has been testing it and found out that OKA, what concerns ceramics, I know that a buddy is He orders it somewhere in Silesia and they send him if you are interested, I can ask him for his address and send it to you. The price is really penny you.
Welcome back. It seems to me that the reason for this temperature is low, it may also be that the air does not go directly into the heated heater, but into the ceramic beads that protect the heater. I am asking for this address. Regards.
Sometimes I bend and weld plastics (bicycle lamp, some accessories for a bicycle, computer) and it can be done with a gas soldering iron or even a small incandescent lighter (I have one in the shape of a revolver) but in the case of soft, flexible materials it was impossible because either everything was shrinking or burning. But I connected various plastics with a transformer soldering iron, but only when I could not use glue. It looked ugly, it stank but it stuck. However, such a welder would be better than a flame and a hot tip, and if it had precise temperature control it would be great.
