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.

Amazon (Open to alternatives if found) [KATSU Tools 140W Desoldering Rework Station](

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