Also good for household cleaning ;)
Cheaper than I could find anywhere else.
Looks neat. Makes me feel like a professional :) Still needs a container to hold it in place. I keep mine in a slot in my toolbox.

Very reasonably priced.
Doesn't cool down the soldering iron tip like a wet sponge does. No holder included. Taped up a bit too much, was kind of difficult to open Can easily make a holder using an old pop can, just cut the top off and leave a few "tabs&... Read more

Cleans the tip of your solder iron very well an smooth. Works much better than the standard sponge.
My Ball fits perfect in the gab for the sponge of my solder station.
I think its more safe to the tip than the sponge. If you are not so lucky like me that it fits in the solder station you should think about a good holder for it. Otherwise it will slip ... Read more

I use both a sponge and a 'half dome' filled with these metal coils. (Mine isn't from DX, but it looks similar to sku.34154)
My original ball got all gunky with solder, so I ordered one of these to replace it. It works just as well as the original in 'cleaning' the iron. A bit small. I don't know if my original holder is bigger then the DX one (I doubt ... Read more
