  • Tin sponge

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

    Pros:

    -Absorbs solder like a sponge. A lot of solder.

    -It's made of copper which is very thermal conductive, so most heat you apply to desolder won't heat the component.

    -Doesn't produce fumes or bad smells

    Cons:

    If any, it comes in a dispenser which has a problem. If you cut the wick very close to the aperture of the dispenser, the end of the wick can get inside, and you'll have to destroy the dispenser.

    OtherThoughts:

    -Perfect for SMD desoldering to recycle components from old PCB's and save money (or get strange components)

    -Also good to remve solder bridges between component legs.

    Bottomline:

    High quality, 1,5 meters and lots of components to recover.

    If you wanna work with very small SMD components, buy a thinner one (1.5mm)
