A compact desoldering braid dispenser for printed circuit board repair and related work that enhances worker safety, increases productivity, and reduces waste is available from Xuron Corp. of Saco, Maine.
The Xuron® WickGun™ Desoldering Braid Dispenser is a handy tool that lets users dispense, position, and cut-off braid completely using one hand; freeing the other to hold a soldering iron. Eliminating finger burns and waste while allowing faster desoldering, it has a thumbwheel for advancing and retracting the braid and a trigger for cutting it off when saturated.
Featuring easy to install cassettes, preloaded with 15 ft. each of copper braid in four sizes from 0.035” to 0.110”W, the Xuron® WickGun™ Desoldering Braid Dispenser is ESD safe and REACH and RoHS compliant. This tool is capable of speeding desoldering by a factor of five and cutting braid waste by 50%. It is ideal for assembly rework, field service repair, and hobbyists.
The Xuron® WickGun™ Desoldering Braid Dispenser sells for $39.95 (list) and the replacement cassettes sell for $6.45.
