Overdid it with the solder
« on: December 07, 2011, 09:22:34 pm »
If you've overdone it with the solder there's no better way to remove it than with a solder sucker. Set the spring-loaded syringe in the down position, melt the solder (sometimes adding more solder helps), put the tip of the tool into the molten puddle & press the red button. The syringe fires and rapidly sucks the solder from the fitting. The old solder freezes in the tip and is pushed out when you re-set the tool (you can also easily take the thing apart for a proper clean up).
