Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWEFUL I spent extra on delivery to obtain this de-soldering pump for an urgent job. On my first attempt to use it the internal spring force caused the nozzle to eject! (The nozzle screw thread is a bad match for the thread in the tube.) To get the job done, I have re-assembled the nozzle after wrapping it's thread with PTFE tape. After having modified the pump I think I cannot now return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I needed to fix a wobbly USB socket on a portable music player and needed to remove some "enthusiastic" soldering all over the traces. This certainly does the job and the screw fixing is pretty reliable in my experience despite what other reviews said. Marking down to 4 out of 5 as its feels pretty low quality and probably not worth a tenner. I've used similar tools that are much more solid and made mostly of metal which feel like they'll last 100 years - this one certainly does what is needed but I don't expect it to last very long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad I needed a pump in a hurry so bought this one. After reading one of the reviws I was a little worried. But once I started using it I was surprised. It did the job well enough, ok maybe not as good as a pro pump but like I said it was needed in a hurry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This turned out to be a bit of a bargain. Reduced to half price for the day and I had a £5 discount voucher, so only cost £5. It works fine and I have used it on several jobs so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job, Very simple review really. I bought this item to remove solder from components on a circuit board. And yep, it does it well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what was needed The solder pump was just what was needed to de-solder some bad caps and replace them, and the click and collect option was just what was needed to make sure the item was available when I visited the store.

What is the significant difference between N40 CH and N91 LL

Asked by: ninetyfive
N91LL is a discontinued reduced to clear item and is priced accordingly. It is also a "whitebox" item so comes in plain white packaging, but it does represent extremely good value for money.

The tips on these pumps wear out in time, can you tell me if you keep spares as " customer support" and how much they cost.

Asked by: Arthur
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.

Is this a specific anti static design or just general as some pumps generate static discharge when released and thus are not suitable for removing solder from sensative semi conductors etc! Which type is this?
Asked by: Justin
These are not anti static
