must have for soldering – Solder Tip Refresher Reviews

posted by mashersmasher on 07/08/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
-works better then local stuff and will clean your iron instantly improving the life of your tips.
-comes with this sticky thing on the bottom to stick it on your soldering stand
-cheaper then local stores which sell ones like this for around $15 Canadian.
Cons:
-small tin but this stuff lasts for months if used regularly and years if used occasionally.
-price is good but not "extreme." i'd still buy it otherwise but if you took off a 75 cents i'd be really happy :)
Other:
$6 on this will save you allot of money that you'd be spending on tips especially if you do surface mount soldering! since you only really need to use them once every time you solder you'll probably have it for years before needing to replace it.
Bottomline:
buy it. it's cheep and you can get allot more out of your iron without spending money on tips
