Re: 475A and de-solder station

Paul Amaranth

A solder sucker and some solderwick braid for cleanup will do the job.

I have an Ungar soldering/desoldering station and I still use a solder
sucker and braid for that job. The desoldering tool won't go over the
can lugs anyway.

You have to be quick or you'll lift the traces from the board.

I am about to embark on my replacement of my 475A low voltage smoothing electrolytics and tantalum caps plus bridge rectifiers. Apologies this is a bit off subject but wondered have any of you tried the "really" cheap Duratool de-soldering station. At less than �100 with some spares; any feedback appreciated. There is a positive review on youtube. Regards Jonathan.
