What a helper! – Aluminum Alloy Desoldering Pump Reviews

posted by Raitis on 05/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Cheaper than locally. Actually way cheaper for what you get. Works really well Seems to hold up against the heat Easy to clean Fun to work with Don't have to worry about it breaking
Cons:
I have no idea where to get replacement plastic tips for this, since that tip still do melt a little if touched to iron and I will probably need some of those...
Other:
Although the case is made from aluminum, the guts are plastic. I would expect them to break eventually, since those are the moving parts. I doubt if that will happen anytime soon though.
Bottomline:
If you need a cheap and sturdy desoldering pump - buy this.
