      I would buy this again

      This was a very good buy. I can consistently remove all solder from a DIP type IC pin in less than 2 seconds at 600 degrees. My first try the part literally fell out. My station came complete with 3 Cleaning Pins, 10 Cotton Filters (one is used in the gun and the other is at the other end of the hose on the base), 5 Steel Wool Filters, 2 Glass Tubes and 1 Tip (2mm I think). It did not include replacement O-rings. It’s not difficult to clean and do recommend doing this often as others have mentioned. The glass tube can be removed while the iron is hot without getting burned to dump out solder, which is a nice feature. The holster angle on the side of the unit can be adjusted so that the gun does not rest pointing down, which will minimize clogging. My unit sits near the edge of my bench allowing the cables to hang off. The only thing it didn’t have was the hose is not tied to the wire between the gun and the base. I’m considering a TechFlex sleeve. It’s not heat proof, but I don’t think the wire is either.

      This is my second 6340 desoldering station. I don't know how old the first one was but, when a replacement was needed i purchased another one. Easy to use and maintain with readily available consumables, I look forward to years of service from this one as well.

      1 year so far with great results

      Never had one of these before. Always used large amounts of solder wick for the last 20 years. De-solder stations were always to expensive for my blood. But now I use this station all the time and it works great! Has paid for it's self in time and wick savings.

      Good Machine

      Overall: 4.5 out of 5
      Value:
      Quality:

      This is a really good unit for the money. I have mostly used expensive "professional" stations and I would say this is nearly as good for 1/5 the money. I use the nozzle cleaning pins (PN 72-6347) to clear the residual solder and oxides whenever it stops up, (Hey MCM they should be included with the unit.) The gun is really easy to clean and the filters are cheap. Keep it clean and it works great!

      Solution for tip Clogging

      Overall: 5 out of 5
      Value:
      Quality:

      Clogging is a common problem with all de-soldering stations, a simple solution is replace the station iron holder with one that holds the iron in the vertical position [tip up]. As a certified PACE electronic workstation repair, I advise all my students not to use the downward iron holder. You are simply fighting gravity and it wins every time whereas tip up it works for you! A simple fix is to attach a magnet[s]to the workstation and epoxy a place of steel to the handle. Students have made several nice holders which are too difficult to explain here, get creative and you'll be doing a lot less de-clogging.

      Time saver

      Overall: 4.5 out of 5
      Value:
      Quality:

      This unit is much cheaper than a Hakko and does well. It's only drawback is that it clogs much too often (several times a day) and is time consuming to clean. Need better tools to remove clogs.
