The Chem-Wik solder wick you recommended is great stuff.<br /> To me, it's the Hoover of solder wick. <br /> <br /> cheers

Willie rocks!<br /> <br /> <br /> Many 'no-name' wicks don't work very well and you risk cooking the component you're desoldering.<br /> <br /> Another thing I've discovered when desoldering, especially on offshore-made items that use cheap solder, is to reflow the joint with a touch of fresh, quality solder like Kester 275 60/40. That makes it wick or suck out a whole lot faster and cleaner.
