soldering

When you solder something, why can't you just melt the solder on the tip of the pencil and place it on the thing your soldering?

Soldier won't stick to a cold metal. Soldier is drawn to heat so when sweating a pipe joint you heat the pipe to draw the soldier in. copper wire is the same way.

have to warm the work up with the iron so the solder will flow into the poors in the material you are joining to make a good bond. Reason some of the modern tronix fails is poor or "cold" solder joints from a flow or wave solder machine. In the world of tronix they often have a gray color when cooled rather than a bright shiney finish, make sort of a connection for a while then fail. I think the #1 failure in new stuff we tested was poor solder, first thing we'd do was grab the 10X loupe or the microscope and start looking at solder.
