RE: Thank you. My experience with the pump was exactly like yours.

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.
