Worth the price – Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner (Black) Reviews

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

Pros:
Completely made of metal. Opens easily allowing you to change to curls after they are filled with solder.
Cons:
The bottom grip surface is made of only three tiny rubber patches. This makes the unit a little shaky when you poke the soldering iron into the curls. This can/could be easily solved by replacing the three patches with a single larger patch covering the whole base of the unit.
Other:
At first sight the amount of curls inside seemed a bit too little. After using it, however, it's actually ok. It's a good thing you need to insert the soldering iron well inside the cleaner so that the spills can't escape the container.
Bottomline:
Very good and inexpensive unit. Easily modifyable for your personal needs.
