    most useful soldering tool

    posted by raystorm6432 on 04/08/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    All metal construction is perfect for soldering and ensures that nothing catches fire. The copper mesh scraping pad inside dissipates heat quickly and draws tin off the soldering tip quickly and cleanly. The soft pads on the bottom keeps the whole thing fr...
    Cons:
    None that I could find.

    Very useful item for the hobbysts and professionals

    posted by metheoneandonly on 06/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This item simply does what it's made for: takes the surplus solder off the soldering iron with ease. Also the box is heavy enough to not to slip on the desk. Very simple to use. Does not make any poisonous smoke. Very useful and worth buying.
    Cons:
    The price may be somewhat lower, but is not too high for what you get..

    Well built and useful

    posted by ubiratamuniz on 04/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This piece of hardware is just useful. It really cleans the soldering tips (it is good to use it while the soldering iron is still hot) and it is not messy, as it has that "metal cup" in which the cleaner "metal sponge" rests. Oh, and th...
    Cons:
    None really.

    "stuff" for cleaning the soldering iron

    posted by jungleboogie on 01/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It works as it's supposed to, you put the soldering iron inside and it removes the solder that's left on the iron. No mystery
    Cons:
    I think it could be a bit cheaper, for what it is. The base could be a bit heavier too

    Very useful to electronics DIY

    posted by Inage on 01/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Does a great job of cleaning the solder iron. Much quicker and better than a wet sponge. Iron retains temperature so you're ready to go right away. Durable construction. Looks like it will last a long time. Comes with english instructions.
    Cons:
    No cons so far after 2weeks use.

    Pros:
    Small product, adapts well on the bench and easy to clean, product very practical rather than wet sponge, enables a very good cleaning of the tip of the welder

    Better than I initially thought

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very good manufacturing quality, much better than I initially expected. It is also bigger than it looks like in the photograph. I prefer this type of tip cleaner over the traditional wet sponge as you usually find a dried sponge and have to spend some ti...
    Cons:
    Perhaps a little more weighty would be better in order to give it more stability over the table, I do not mean it is too light,...

    What a great product. It had a solid construction and the wool inside is very nice. They seem to have added a sticker on the bottom so your can attact it to any surface you want. metal materials which is nice.
    Cons:
    It could be a little heavier and cheaper. For 6 bucks its a little expensive but it is an investment if you want to go into el...
