Well I may have to make the plunge soon and I am starting my research.

Anyone here have a desoldering station or special tool (other than a simple sucker) that they world recommend.

I'm trying to keep the price below $125 bucks, need it to be able to work in tight places and not damage the board.

Do those "Chinese" bulky desoldering guns with the electric pump work? They are I think 90watts and about $80. Or should I be looking at a "station" where the pump is remote which cost more $$$$.

While this will be for occasional use. When I need it I want it to work.
