In Reply to: RE: Do you put flux on the solder joint or on the wick? Thanks. posted by Jonesy on January 25, 2017 at 11:31:15
The pump left lots of residue, but I took advantage of that by using the used solder to aid the installation of the new item on the pcb.
A guy from Russia I used to work with had a set of stainless steel pieces of tubing. He would get the solder melted and plug it down in there displacing the solder from the actual joint. The part practically fell out.
And then usualy you could use the original solder over again.
I have worked with quite a few people from Europe, especially eastern Europe. I was told that (especially in the soviet days) parts were very hard to come by so every shop ran like a boneyard. They wasted nothing.
I wouldn't mind having a set of those doodads but they only work on through hole components on single sided boards.
I searched for something like that but couldn't find anything. as it a rube goldberg situation or is it an official desoldering tool?
