Better than a wet sponge! – Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner (Black) Reviews

posted by OzTrev on 04/12/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
o All metal, solid construction o Amusing instructions on box o Works as advertised o Reasonable price
Cons:
Too light - it moves around too much when pushing soldering iron tip into metal ball. I fixed this problem by adding some lead fishing weights under the metal ball of wire.
Other:
The metal sponge could be bigger as it tends to shrink into the container - the addition of the lead weights under it helped partially solve this problem.
Bottomline:
Although I was initially skeptical as to how efficient it would be compared to the conventional wet sponge for cleaning soldering iron tips, i use it definitely works better than a wet sponge. Buy one now :-)
