5 stars 14 ratings and 13 reviews
$7.49 

Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner
High quality tip cleaner uses brass coil sponge which provides superior tip cleaning with virtually no thermal impact. Considered far better than the common damp sponge method because there is no thermal shock when tip comes in contact with coils. Weighted and padded base provides notched sides allowing cleaner to also serve as an iron stand.

    Way better than a wet sponge

    I've been using this for several years and have never looked back. It cleans the tip of the soldering iron better than a wet sponge, and doesn't cool the tip. The base is weighted with a rubber pad on the bottom, so it holds in place on the workbench nicely. The brass coil lasts a long time... after regular use for several years, I'm still on my original coil (I've rotated the coil a couple times). I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

    The cure for a dirty Tip

    The base is weighted with a non skid foot pad. The base is metal = should survive many trips to the floor. The actual scrunggie pad is a bit softer than expected. Still fully useable. Will probably buy spares.

    No more cooling down after wiping or rolling the tip to get it clean. Really helped speed up big soldering jobs on multi-pin connectors.
