Thread: Delsodering Cleaning Tool

  1. #1

    Default Delsodering Cleaning Tool

    Hey All,

    So, I have an awesome vacuum pump desoldering gun that I love, but gets clogged once in a while. It came with a .8mm cleaning tool that would clean it out perfectly. I actually lost this cleaning tool and need another one. Does anyone know a source to purchase this cleaning rod ? Everything on eBay is either the 1.3mm or the metal kit which is way to short and doesn't insert all the way (plus gets hot as it's metal). I Having trouble finding the something that will work.

    Thanks !!!

    Should be easy to find something--what was the original made of?

    Hakko sells them direct for a reasonable price. hakkousa.com is the correct site for orders placed in the US.

    Hey Chuck. The original one was metal .8mm I believe, had a plastic handle and was nice and long.

    Thanks VERAULT, but that one isn't long enough for my gun.

    You could buy a spool of 13 gauge music wire and have enough for the rest of your life and any friends. 13 ga. = 0.8mm.

    This is what I am looking for. This is a 1.3mm. I need this in 0.8mm but this length and with a plastic handle. Most are too short and will not reach the tank area.

    Buy the music wire Chuck suggested and cut off a piece long enough and epoxy on a scrap wood handle.

    Go to Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.... and pick up a welding tip cleaning tool.
