Solder Wick, 0.055″, #2, 5ft

Solder wick, coffee, and paper towels keep SparkFun running. You can steal someone’s diagonal cutters for a minute, but you’d better ask before touching their solder wick.

Solder wick is composed of copper threads braided together. Flux is normally added to help the solder flow from where it is not supposed to be (the jumper) to the wick. Hence, solder wick is sometimes called desolder braid. Yes, you really can solder anything, and solder wick is a large part of the process.

We tried a lot of cheaper solder wick before finding this supplier. This is a cheaper version of the wick we use. We may start using it actually. It works great and the price is awesome.

This wick is 0.055″ (size #2) wide and 5ft long.

    Soldering wick in general is one of the best things to have on hand when taking apart or salvaging old components as well as for those mistakes where you may accidentally solder two pins together.I find wick a lot easier to use than a desoldering pump,

    Made a mistake in your soldering? Don’t worry – If you want to see what the product can do, take a look at this youtube video demonstrating good rework of soldering with simple tools:
