Looks strong, but plastic parts break easily – Aluminum Alloy Desoldering Pump Reviews

posted by DENCD on 06/16/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It's very cheap and looks durable. It's very easy to use and has good ergonomics
Cons:
unfortunately the "clicking" mechanism is made of plastic and it did not seem to be able to handle the strength of the inner spring. The plastic part split in half after two "clicks"
Other:
Although it looks well built and quite rigid, it failed after using it twice.. Hopefully some glue will do the trick, otherwise I still might buy a new one since other reveiws appeared to be good and the price is low
Bottomline:
No general conclusion, hopefully a new one will perform better than this one...
