  • Pretty good soldering wick

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    It's a pretty good soldering wick. Not as efficient as pre-tinned wick but very usable.

    Cons:

    When used alone, it's not that good at catching solder because it's only copper. I use it along with some home-made flux (based on colophony violin rosin found here) and then it's far better.

    OtherThoughts:

    Order at least 3 if you solder / desolder more than once a month. This thing depletes at an impressive rate.

    Bottomline:

    If you need it, this is it. Use solder flux to activate the full power of this solder wick.
