The name gets a laugh more often than not, but what this syringe-looking rig really does is suck solder away from an area you didn’t mean to put it on. MRO2Go has the Edsyn Soldapullt for about $11, which isn’t too bad when you try to think of a better way to get solder off something. At least in theory.
I assume you actuate the spring-loaded plunger when the solder has been melted by your soldering iron, and then is sucked up into the barrel of the tool. Unfortunately I can’t find instructions on the terrible Edsyn site, so I have to ask if anyone out there knows how to use it. Why? I picked one up for $1.00 at a garage sale this weekend.
