Desoldering Rework Station sponge washers ?

Post by exxos » Fri Sep 10, 2021 3:17 pm

Those of you that have this type of station...

Does anyone know Somewhere, preferably in the UK, that sells those small round washer things as highlighted in the image ?

I have been searching but can only seem to find them in the USA, which is bonkers :roll:

OH never mind :lol:
Duratool/Anesty ZD-915 Compatible Desoldering Filters

Available in the following two sizes:

17mm diameter (10 pack) - these filters go inside the glass barrel of the desoldering iron.
21mm diameter (6 pack) - these filters go inside the vacuum hose's entrance to the main unit.

@kulamario interesting idea, cotton being fire resistant to some extent.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.
