In today’s post I’m going to talk about how to refill your flux pen. If you’ve never done it before, then it might be a little tricky and even a bit messy. But, I’m going to break it down into three easy steps.
First, let’s start with the tools you’ll need to get this done. Of course you’ll need some flux refill to fill the pen. You’ll also need a pair of pliers, to make it easier to remove the dispensing tip. Additionally, you might want a rag or paper towels nearby for any cleanup and to keep the flux off everything.
Now let’s begin the steps…
1. With a pair of pliers carefully remove the dispensing cap and attached felt tip.
2. Slowly refill pen body with liquid flux from refill bottle.
3. After the pen body is filled, secure the dispensing cap and tip with the pliers into the pen body.
*Note-The felt tip can be easily replaced with a new felt tip, simply by sliding the old one out, and sliding the new replacement tip in it’s place.
Now that you have your flux pen refilled you are ready to get to work and finish off those pesky soldering projects you put on hold until now. Good luck and happy soldering!
