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 a 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.

Be sure to checkout the SMD Soldering Tutorials to see how to use solder wick.

For when you need to fix mistakes

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,
