Works well – Aluminum Alloy Desoldering Pump Reviews

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

Pros:
I bought this to replace an older plastic solder sucker I bought at a rat shack many years ago. It seems to have sturdy construction and functions smoothly.
Cons:
It sucks. No, wait. That isn't a con. It's supposed to suck.
Other:
Cheaper than anything I could get at the local places and at least as nice.
Bottomline:
If you need to occasionally desolder things, this works pretty good. I have considered building my own powered desoldering vacuum to overcome the limited abilities of ones like this, but its simplicity is hard to beat for low volume work.
