Accessory request: desoldering tip - oritron - 02-22-2024

Hi Pine64 friends,



I believe the Pinecil has dramatically changed the game in entry level soldering irons, even displacing soldering stations. With another accessory, it could do the same to desoldering tools.



I'd love to see a tip featuring a hollow nozzle, and a press-fit connection for a length of silicone tubing connected to a small (filter and) pump. The fast, precise heating and temperature control of the Pinecil would push this combo handily beat out the $300 price bracket of desoldering tools, like the Hakko FR-301, even without pump control in my hands.



Thanks for considering this!

Thanks for getting the ball rolling on this @tllim . I was wondering if the product team has found out anything noteworthy yet? I could lend you a tip that is pretty close to what is needed if that would help, if so feel free to contact me directly.

There will be a new desoldering device introduce soon but just not as you described. The main reason on not develop such tip is required high power consumption.
