Make your soldering much easier with this – Soldering Remover Ball - Color Assorted - Color Assorted (Large) Reviews

posted by JohnEdwa on 12/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Perfect for keeping your soldering iron tip clean.
Helps a ton to get all the burned flux and unwanted soldering blobs off the tip.
Cons:
Isn't really about this item, but these are supposed to go in to heavy stands so they wont roll around, and I haven't found one from DX yet.
But, this still works, just have to be more gentle with it.
Other:
Remember, keep your pants on when soldering.
Solder is really, really hot, and has a nasty habit of bouncing everywhere if you violently stab the tip to clean it.
Bottomline:
If you don't have one of these, and do even a tiny amount of soldering, this helps to keep the tip nice and clean, making soldering easier, and keeping the tip in good condition longer
