Solder wicks.


Recommended Posts

I am hoping this is an appropriate forum.
How do I use a solder wick to clean up messy drops of solder?
I assumed it would be like a reverse solder - ie heat up the wick & the affected area & the solder would magically run up the wick. It hasn't happened.
What is the correct way to use a wick to clean up messy soldering attempts?

you can use diy solder wick. i strip out old tvs for high voltage parts and then grind the boards for perf. well at least when i had time. the grounding strap on most older tvs the cathode ray kind was a silver? or platinum? braided wire it works quite well.
