Desoldering
« on: August 13, 2006, 04:24:57 PM »
I was reading an article on how to build a mousebot, and it said something about a desoldering tool.  I know what it means, but what exactly would the tool be and how would I desolder something?

A solder sucker!!!

Basically you heat up the solder with a solder iron, then push a button on this thing and it sucks up all the solder.

You can also use a solder wick

But they suck (in a bad way).

What was in the mousebot article, and could you tell me where you found it?
