Reasonably good copper solder braid – Goot Desoldering Wick Remover (2.5mm x 1.5M) Reviews

posted by OzTrev on 09/09/2011

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

Pros:
o Very cheap price compared to local prices for the same thing!
o Very handy for sucking up solder when desoldering components or just cleaning up a the pins of a surface mount integrated circuit with fine pitch.
o Free planet wide transportation :-)
Cons:
o As others have noted, I do not believe that this copper desoldering braid contains ANY flux at all - I've never noticed any and it does not work very well at all until I add my own resin flux to it. Once you add flux, it works almost like magic!
Other:
Much cheaper than anything I can buy in this galaxy.
Bottomline:
Buy it, get some flux too if you don't have any. It does the job provdied you add your own flux.
