Re: Removing solder from holes

It's expensive but a HAKKO FR301 solder removal tool is the best way I have found to remove solder either from a hole or for component removal.

I second this, though my unit is a Hakko 808. I don't recall exactly what I paid for it, but it's worth every penny. The only thing that's more valuable in terms of price vs performance is my thermal wire stripper. I recall it costing ~$400 USD, but it's more than paid for itself and makes wire strippingĀ so much easier and precise!
