You got it. Not with a flame though. I use one of these with a very fine point. Just get it hot enough to melt the two ends and fill the seam.

I'm not sure of the rules here about posting links to other forums, but if you're interested I can point you in the direction of the post I learned from. Just shoot me a PM.

It's an interesting idea. As long as you use Silver Bearing (for drinking water) solder it should be fine. The only downside I can see is it will tarnish, and need to be polished.

Super job for your first! Great idea with the solder.

The pen ( including the solder) has a CA finish so the solder should not tarnish and if the CA is thick enough will help overcome the lighter density. Sort of like using CA over softwood. It will add a hard shell finish. Still, a drop on the floor can still cause damage.
