+1! Nothing beats a desolderstation imho
But, these things get the job done too and they are better than the regular cheap soldersuckers

Look what my wife bought at Action. I must say it was because she discovered the power of the Korean magic sponges that I bought in bulk and she used up quite a few in the house.......

99 Eurocents for 5 and they are larger than the one's I had from Korea. Haven't tested them yet but.....don't see why they would work any different.

Been looking for the stuff that Superully uses for restoring bad wood parts, Borma Wachs Holzhärter....



Here is the factory link. Company is in Italy:
http://www.bormawachs.com/gb/restoration/221-liquid-extra-strong-stripper-radikal-abbeizer.html


I could find one source in The Netherlands but they are way too expensive. Also, you have to buy 1 liter minimum and I think I need less of this stuff since I only need to do some corners on my Q*bert.

So, here's a German webshop that also sells smaller quantities:
http://www.kreativwerkzeuge.de/index.php?HHGsid=141e0dd3373002d680b57432a3ec2e3e&SEQ_TOKEN_501013acf1214dd933fbf0a20285e977=8cb4e4f63a945b3fbf4ff8e259363e51&module=search_result&keywords=borma&x=0&y=0

I mailed him and he does do international shipping for very reasonable prices, 250ml = €5, 2x250ml = €7 (to The Netherlands, ask him for your country).

Received 250ml. Of the Borma Waxhs Holzhärter today.....I found out this webshop is very near to a well known place for me.....I had to LOL when I discovered it.

I noticed that it seems like February is "sell your Müter rejuvenator month" in Germany......

http://www.ebay.de/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR2.TRC1.A0.H0.Xmüter.TRS0&_nkw=müter&_sacat=0

More and more pop up.....I saw one go for less than 6 euro !!!

The best one's (or should I say easiest to use) are the 95 and 2005.

Thanks, but the link is not working.

I will use this for the weak wood in my Robotron (fucking worms):
http://www.ebay.de/itm/Vosschemie-Yachtcare-G4-Holzversiegelung-Haftgrund-fur-Estovoss-PU-Lack-1-L-/400033687917?pt=Bootsteile_Zubeh%C3%B6r&hash=item5d23dda96d

I tried it on a wooden and pretty rotten box with many worm holes. It hardens the wood and kills everything inside. I have painted the box with this stuff and after 10 minutes all kinds of strange insects came creeping and dying out of the gaps in the wood.
There are like 5000 warning signs on the tube. lol

Booooooooooohh ! Wink

Looks nice but......I've done two color matched paints now and both were matched by one of the most advanced color detecting devices in the world which can't be bought for any money.....some of them are actually so beautiful I find it hard not to stare at them and they are called Human Eyes.

The Ms.Pac blue was absolutely perfect....and judging from the primer color, the Q*bert yellow is looking spot on too.....

But......Nice idea for sure.

Needed still some parts for the Q*bert PSU and found that Reichelt had them. Had seen them at www.flipperwinkel.nl but they were cheaper at Reichelt and the shipping was the same BUT Richest accepts PayPal....and also....I could include a tool I really wanted because the small tin-suckers I have used so far all show problems in the long run...:




I had worked with one like this before at a job I had many many years ago and it SUCKS ! I mean, it doesn't suck but it sucks Wink

Yeah yeah yeah I know about those fantastic desoldering stations but I don't have the budget for one right now....all in good time Wink

Huhhhh, they seem to have it listed twice.....this is the one I ordered:

http://www.reichelt.nl/DS-017/3/index.html?&ACTION=3&LA=446&ARTICLE=7183&artnr=DS+017&SEARCH=Edsyn

Dunno, maybe the cheaper one Is a smaller version ? But it says 330mm which seems the same size......

2,38 is nuts !!!! I'm thinking of ordering one or two more for that price......

I had ordered an extra tip when I ordered mine but that tip alone is more expensive ?!?!

[edit] I just measured mine.....exacly the same size ! I need some electronics parts anyway so I'm ordering 2 more of these, nice for work too SmileySmiley
