Here is the tool I use. Just under 4 ins long.

It is spring loaded shut and has 2 tiny slots the roller table locates in. There is a roller table in it here.

You heat the bit sticking out the opposite side.

I use one of those cigarette lighters that give a flame like a tiny blow torch. $3 each from the local servo.

I prefer this over a liquid because it is fast to cool just by gently blowing on it. I feel I have better control.

If it isn't right just add heat again. Another few seconds with the lighter.

You can keep adjusting it till you are happy.
Learning all the time.

Cool! I like that. This tool would automatically hone your skills. Nothing like a second chance. Or third.
Keep winding things,
