Xuron WickGun™ Desoldering Braid Dispenser Eliminates Finger Burns and Waste

SACO, ME--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2014) - Xuron Corp. is re-introducing their compact desoldering braid dispenser for printed circuit board repair and related work. This handy tool enhances worker safety, increases productivity, and reduces waste.

The Xuron® WickGun™ Desoldering Braid Dispenser is a handy tool that lets users dispense, position, and cut-off braid completely using one hand; freeing the other to hold a soldering iron. Eliminating finger burns and waste while allowing faster desoldering, it has a thumbwheel for advancing and retracting the braid and a trigger for cutting it off when saturated.

Featuring easy to install cassettes, preloaded with 15 ft. each of copper braid in four sizes from 0.035" to 0.110"W, the Xuron® WickGun™ Desoldering Braid Dispenser is ESD safe and REACH and RoHS compliant. This tool is capable of speeding desoldering by a factor of five and cutting braid waste by 50%. It is ideal for assembly rework, field service repair, and hobbyists.

The Xuron® WickGun™ Desoldering Braid Dispenser sells for $39.95 (list) and the replacement cassettes sell for $6.45.
