Small but OK – Aluminum Alloy Desoldering Pump Reviews

posted by rtortore on 05/15/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Metal body and components. Well made and the edges are well sanded and not sharp. It is small, but the size has advantages for tight spots near capacitors where a larger sucker may have problems.
Cons:
The body of the device is rather small - in effect about half the size of a 'normal' solder sucker. The locking part of the plunger does not always engage, but isn't too bad. The plastic tip isn't heat resistant, so be careful when using - you dont want to burn your tip! ;-)
Other:
For the cost - you can do no wrong ... it is inexpensive and less than the cost of a roll of desoldering copper tape.
Bottomline:
For the $$$ go for it ... cit would cost you more to drive to the local store to see what they have!
