The classic Hakko 808 Desoldering Tool for removing through-hole parts on printed wiring boards. This unit is used but has been cleaned and serviced with two new A1231 Valve Plates (see pics) installed in the pump as part of a recent maintenance. The filters have been changed and the solder collection tube has been cleaned.Solder suction is very good. No calibration to the heat setting has been performed. Included with this Hakko 808 tool. New rubber seal for collection tube. Used 1.0mm cleaning rod. New Tips, size A1002, A1004, A1006, A1007.
For years I changed out parts using solder wick or a pencil-type solder sucker. When used with the correct tip, this tool works so much faster in comparison. From my experience to keep the best performance, the tip and heating element head has to be kept clear of solder and flux build up after every work session of use. You can also prolong the use of the round filter by peeling off the top layer after it becomes clogged with solder flux residue.
If you are not sure how and when to use this tool, there are lots of You Tube videos to get more information. I like this video as it shows the pros and cons of using solder wick, a manual solder sucker and the Hakko 808.
