ok i have many of those sparkers like the one in your catalog

the problem is soldering a wire to the bottom metel thing

the metel heats up when the solder sticks to it then it falls apart and cant be fixed

can i suggest that you sell a different type?

and

how did you attach the wire on yours?

You don't need solder when you have 18,000 volts.
The current will find its own way home.

Just wrap a wire around the base, as in these instructions:
