I've always used a HAKKO 808 for thru-hole de-soldering and wick. The
Hakko 808 isn't real cheap either and it's supplied (tips, filters,

I see Hakko has a cheaper FR300-xxx for about $270.00. It looks like it
uses the same tips.
I guess I am a Hakko fanboy (lol). I love their irons and use a 928 setup
daily, with a chisel tip and a micro-tip.
For Hot Air, I tried a Chinese 862D+ and it is pure garbage. It make hot
air but blows the ground faults all the time (My shop is in the basement,
