Powered desoldering pump

I've chatted with a few people who regularly use the electronics bench and desoldering is always a point of contention. A dedicated desoldering pump will help in retro device repair, and will allow easier harvesting of components from old PCBs (and we've all soldered the wrong header pins to a pi, right?)

Maintenance will consist of buying “cleaning pins” every once in a while, these are dirt cheap so can probably be member funded or added to the consumables list.

This unit will sit nicely alongside the other Soldering stations, on the left hand electronics bench
