I wish my desoldering pump had adequate heat near the back. Every 10 solder points or so, this tube gets clogged with solidified solder. I have to use a blowtorch to clear it.
@yakkoj In almost every occurrence, I've found that replacing the phrase "I have to use a blowtorch" with "I GET to use a blowtorch" increases overall enjoyment. FYI.
@xmanmonk I should have had that mindset last week when I was using propane torch to try to unsolder some old plumbing. I had to cut it instead.
@mcscx I have this Aoyue Int474A++ vacuum desoldering station. Works well if I remember to keep everything clear. https://mastodon.sdf.org/media/F5y_wbB-1kiw2Usg9rA
