Exhibit description

A soldering iron serves to join elements which are resistant to high temperatures.

For this purpose, a special binding material is used, called solder. To some extent, soldering resembles glueing: once heated, the solder melts and sets, joining together pieces of metal or glass.

This particular soldering iron is powered with gas. A gas burner heated the soldering tip, which then heated the solder.

Before this exhibit made its way to the museum, it was used in the workshop of the gasworks in Paczków.
