That should work; I've seen things like that.
A solder pot is a pot full of molten solder. Think of a crockpot or a
soup mug with an electric heater in the bottom. Insert bars of solder
and let them melt.
I never understood what those things are meant to be used for; they
show up in tool catalog but never with any explanation. Is component
removal the "official" reason for them? Or tinning wires?
