For the price, this solder dispenser does what you'll likely buy it for. I wouldn't consider this for a production environment as it's pretty much stamped and folded steel. The hole for the solder is just that, a punched hole in the metal frame. I have not had any problems with the dispenser cutting solder or binding. Bottom line is this works for the intended purpose, but it isn't fancy (nor is it expensive).
convenient, handy, easy to use
I have been doing business with MCM for years and always had great service.
