Hey Guys, I usually use one of those mechanical pump solder suckers; however, I need something better. I’m looking at desoldering stations and am unfamiliar with the technology. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!
I find the bulb is kind of magic! I expected that it would get most of the bulk off, but leaving an annoying bit behind. But the molten solder seems to have some kind of stick-together viscous group-mentality such that once most of it is moving it all follows. I've had leads through pcbs that have been completely freed by one suck.
