Rated 1 out of 5 by from The first one lasted a couple of uses before the tip started to corrode and the suction tube got clogged. There was also electrical arcing sounds coming from inside so I took it back and got it exchanged. As soon I plugged in the replacement I immediately heard the same arcing/buzzing sound and the iron started to turn black around where the metal meets the plastic, which was something the first one did not do straight away. In my opinion don't bother buying as it is poorly made and useless after a few uses.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just bought this & just received it: First critism is no instructions at all, which in this case is a pretty major one. The pump body can be removed as per one users comments, but I found this remarkably difficult to do. In this respect it is pertient to point out that the lower end of the pump has a wide orifice and does not fit tightly. Lifting the pump body up enough to clear the half-circle barrier over the top of the black part of the pump stresses the frame exceedingly. Frankly a design that is basically good, but needs refining.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok works well when new, providing the metal washer held by 3 screws is supporting the end and not allowing the element to twist round which eventually will brake the element wire. Long term the unit clogs easily is difficult to clear. Finally the plastic washer which holds the rubber plunger seal brakes due to the fact it is made of the wrong material not heat resistant As these parts are not available this is the end of its life. Hard/moderate use 18/24 months. Strangely enough the elements seem to outlast the pump. I have had 5 over the last 6 years. generally bought in the sales. 2 replaced under warranty now down to 2 working units. Does not help that only unleaded solder is available. I recently acquired a large reserve of leaded solder and the pump works much better with this. All fail in the same way

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great innovative product. It enables the de-soldering of components on PCB's to be carried out reliably and with little damage to the PCB. I was able to remove a 24-pin eprom and replace it with a DIL chip carrier in 20 mins. On a double sided PCB with plated thru holes. The repaired PCB worked perfectly!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A great tool that makes life much easier when de-soldering stubborn components. Some replacement tips and cleaning instructions would have been nice. I bought this because nylon tips for non-electric pumps appear to have been taken out of the catalogue. Grrr.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from One tool does not do it all Build quality is ok,heat is borderline,doesn't state what the tip size is in the advert,and once opened discovered tip can't be swapped,no good for small components.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it, mine broke before I even reached the end of my project. The metal tip cracked and chipped which meant the pump couldn't create a vacuum to suck up the solder. It did work alright when brand new but I'd like to add that I was desoldering using lead based solder and have a feeling it wouldn't be that great with silver based solder which has a higher melting point. It also clogged quite easily and there wasn't a quick way of emptying it during use which meant that you have to be careful that it doesn't spew molten solder over your work!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A nice tool but barely hot enough for lead free solder and doesn't have a clip to hang it up with. The tip is also a little large for small components.

Have you printed a set of instructions yet?

Asked by: andrewt
We feel that the operation of the device is simple enough that no instruction manual is necessary, however should they be required you can use the following as a guide. Plug in the device Wait until the tip of device is hot enough to melt the solder Depress the spring loaded plunger on the device until it latches Press the hot tip of the device onto the solder until it melts Press the button near the plunger to release, the rapid retraction of the plunger will suck up the solder. Repeat as required.

Can you empty out the solder "slugs" , when it is full, or do you have to throw it all away ?
Asked by: Anonymous
These can be emptied.
Answered by: DH
Date published: 2015-07-17

To empty the pump: hold the unit in one hand with the tip facing away from you, now push the back end of the pump body (black bit behind the button) towards the tip with your thumb and lift it away from the frame. With the pump body removed you can pull the black end-piece out and clean the insides. To reassemble, just push it all back together. The pump works well but some instructions would have been nice!
