Of course you could just buy one here.

Radio Shack sells some wonderful little books by Forrest Mims III that show
you how to build quick little circuits like the divider you asked for. The
books are widely available at bookstores as well.

I run a web-based business.
It pays to stay in touch.

Did you look up Forrest Mims III when you were in the library?

His books are popular and widely available. Radio Shack used to carry
dozens of his books. Now I only find these two items with books he wrote:
here.

But Amazon.com carries several:

here
and there are more...

The effort it takes to build a soldering iron is not worth the money it takes to buy one, go to your nearest eletronic's store and browse around, here where I live you can get a 15-20w iron for $15-$20, but don't forget to buy some solder too. Check out http://www.kpsec.freeuk.com/solder.htm for tips on getting started soldering.
