Works Well – Goot Wick Soldering Remover (1.5mm x 1.5M) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
This is a value priced item with above average use. It sucks up almost all solder on electronics connections and is small enough to fit into tight spaces.
Cons:
At times the solder doesn't flow well into the braid. I am not sure if this is caused by poor quality solder or lack of flux in the wire. Also, I sometimes had problems with the plastic spool and the wire unwrapping itself. As with most soldering items, when it gets hot it smells so try not to inhale the fumes.
Other:
Bottomline:
This is a necessary soldering item for any level of skill. It is cheap and works effectively well enough to make it a great value. I have just begun to learn how to solder so I quickly went through the strand, so plan on purchasing more than just one!
