lunch box handle reinforcement
For my child, the handle often sticks out and lets the box fall to the ground, opens the box and flies the contents.
I decided to make this attachment a bit more robust.
No matter what mistakes I make, you can do better.
I decided to weld this joint.
My soldering iron is buried somewhere in my workshop, but I have a map gas torch and pipe flux at hand as well as lead-free soldering, so I went.
I knew there was a risk of burning paint, but I went there anyway.
I burned the paint.
If you want to do the same thing with the torch, turn the flame down a bit.
Also, be sure to have your lunch box facing you so that your welding will not run, but in the area you want.
If I were to get the metal lunch box handle again, I might try JB Weld.
If I want to weld it again (
I might do this if I don\'t have JB Weld around)
I will definitely dig out my soldering iron and have more local heating than the torch.
Overall it is more robust than before and I don\'t want to screw it up again.
