Adequate for the job – Soldering Scrapper Tool Reviews

posted by 1dash1 on 07/10/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Fits my hand very well. Scraping head is slightly bigger than I'd like (for removing sodder from circuit boards), but proabably about the right size for other hobbyists. Not suitable for building & construction needs.
Cons:
Build quality is no more than adequate. In particular, the head tightening mechanism is a friction mechanism and not threaded. A threaded mechanism would be much more effective for keeping a tight blade. However, the blade is reasonably well seated and doesn't wobble too much. It's okay.
Other:
Aesthetically, the handle's knurling is a nice touch. I imagine that certain artists could use this instrument to paint with acrylics.
Bottomline:
It's cheap, it works, what more can you ask for?
