Desolder station
« on: July 29, 2016, 05:05:57 PM »

Since I am starting to do more and more circuit board work I am considering a desolder station or gun of some sort to speed things up and perhaps even make things more tidy.  Any experiences or recommendations would be most welcome. Thanks!

Learn all about solder wick, then a good Unger solder sucker.  If you feel you really, really need to make the investment - Weller are arguably the best.  I like the ones that have an integral compressor (more expensive, but 1 unit).
