If the item is cold the method is as follows: Heat up the area of galvanizing to be repaired ( take care not to exceed 200oC as this will damage the galvanized surface).
Heat up the end of the stick with blow torch or similar until the stick starts to melt.
Rub the end of the stick onto the area.
Re heat the stick and surface as required
