Soldering iron

In the early part of the twentieth century, soldering irons were solid copper blocks three or so inches long with cross sections of about a square inch and having an iron rod extending out from it about eight inches. The rod was pointed so that a wooden handle could be driven onto it. The soldering iron was heated by putting it in a fire. It was taken out of the fire for soldering, and as soon as it cooled to the point that solder could no longer be melted, it had to be reheated.
