Oh! It would have been better, in my view, if we had been told this at the beginning. We could then have advised about the tread-grooving devices used on commercial truck tyres.

The idea is that I can cut/shape rubber blocks with a heated chisel shape so no soldering involved!

I'll try the aluminium and see how that does, using copper would be much more difficult for me.

This is to make a heater chisel with the rod fitting into a 100w soldering iron


Looks like it to me yes

One tiny typo and your message was presumably missed

[heater / heated]
