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

Completely made of metal. Opens easily allowing you to change to curls after they are filled with solder.
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.
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.
Very good and inexpensive unit. Easily modifyable for your personal needs.
