Default My new toy..








It has been a very long time since I saw a label that writes "made in Japan"


Probably the best de-soldering tool (for its money of course).

Nice.



I live in a town where soldering doesn't even exist. Seriously. They sell soldering irons and solder, but no solder braid, solder suckers, tipping solution, or any irons above the basic "plug it in and it gets hot, oh and the stand is crap so it's a fire hazard" bullcrap. Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, Harbor Freight, Walmart, even a local shop, none of them care soldering supplies beyond plain rosin core solder, and that's no help to anyone since if you're going to solder something odds are you're going to need to desolder something too.

I hate this city.

Nice tool, crmaris

I just use my soldering iron for desoldering duties. Seems to work fine for the little use it sees for that purpose

Here in Europe I couldn't find it anywhere so I ordered from US.

@Elledan. I also used a plain soldering iron for desoldering duties (along with solder wick and a good pump). Till the time I had to desolder a PSU heatsink with its mosfets and of course not destroy it (very difficult )..

I'd probably get a desoldering station if I had to do heavy lifting like that It's always a pain to desolder something which sucks the heat away almost faster than you can apply it, like heatsinks

Ohhhh I'm jealous now. I want a 808 so bad. I currently use a 456-16 63W and a ratshack solder sucker to desolder heatsinks. It works well, but it is a bit messy and takes some time.

I bought two tips extra with it. I hope they will last long. The good thing is that on ebay you can find lots of stuff for it (since there is no support here in Greece I will buy all accessories from ebay).
