  • Better than a wet sponge!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    o All metal, solid construction
    o Amusing instructions on box
    o Works as advertised
    o Reasonable price

    Cons:

    Too light - it moves around too much when pushing soldering iron tip into metal ball. I fixed this problem by adding some lead fishing weights under the metal ball of wire.

    OtherThoughts:

    The metal sponge could be bigger as it tends to shrink into the container - the addition of the lead weights under it helped partially solve this problem.

    Bottomline:

    Although I was initially skeptical as to how efficient it would be compared to the conventional wet sponge for cleaning soldering iron tips, i use it definitely works better than a wet sponge. Buy one now :-)
