Tin sponge – Goot Desoldering Wick Remover (2.5mm x 1.5M) Reviews

posted by erdabyz on 10/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
-Absorbs solder like a sponge. A lot of solder.
-It's made of copper which is very thermal conductive, so most heat you apply to desolder won't heat the component.
-Doesn't produce fumes or bad smells
Cons:
If any, it comes in a dispenser which has a problem. If you cut the wick very close to the aperture of the dispenser, the end of the wick can get inside, and you'll have to destroy the dispenser.
Other:
-Perfect for SMD desoldering to recycle components from old PCB's and save money (or get strange components)
-Also good to remve solder bridges between component legs.
Bottomline:
High quality, 1,5 meters and lots of components to recover.
If you wanna work with very small SMD components, buy a thinner one (1.5mm)
