From time to time I check around to see if there is anything new in the way of tools in my price range. I saw one unit on Ebay that looked like it might fill the bill. It was being offered used, so I thought I would have a look on Amazon and see what it sold for new. after seeing it, reading the questions and answers and the reviews, I have one on the way.

I know there are some that may dismiss Chinese products out of hand, but are there any of you who have used one of these? I have a couple of projects I want such an extractor for, one being a Magnavox Astro-Sonic that needs capacitor and resistor replacement. This looks much more appealing than a single shot manual extractor.

For the price, you can't go wrong. They have at least 3 different tip sizes available which is good. If you decide to purchase it, buy it from Amazon just in case it has problems or doesn't work out for you.

I bought a different brand at more than twice the price... :roll:

That's good to know. I did get it through Amazon.

This one is slightly more compact, it is self contained with the heating element and the pump in the gun.

I see. I guess I've gotten used to working with a temp readout. among other things, it gives me an indication of heat transfer and how hot the joint has become.
