  • Fairly good desoldering wick.

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

    Pros:

    It's a good wick with many thin copper strands.
    The price is very good for something like this.

    Cons:

    This wick has none or allmost no flux in it, making it hard to get the solder to stick to it and start flowing with the capilary effect.

    OtherThoughts:

    If you want this wick to work a lot better, just dip it in liquid rosin flux and let it dry before using it, it will work at least twice as good, probably better.

    Bottomline:

    This is great, get it if you need it, but grab one of sku.4697 and desolve it in about 50-100ml of cleaning ethanol to get liquid flux that you can dip your wick in to get better results.
