      Comments about RadioShack® Replacement Tip for Cat. #6402060:

      I have the RS desoldering iron, I like using it.
      The drawback is now you can only order one of these at a time when they are in stock, and they are almost always out of stock.
      I modify guitar effects pedals for a living, and I go through one of these every week.
      I have called and emailed several times over the past 2 months asking to buy several of these at once. I used to be able to order 20 or more at a time, but not now. Looks like I will have to get a different setup for desoldering since I can't get supplies from RS.

      If you have a light project, or a few light project, then the RS desoldering iron and replacement tip is a good way to go.

        The desoldering Iron is a great tool for removing components. It is much more efficient in the removal of components than using a soldering iron with a solder plunger/bulb. However, the replacement tips are made of poor quality. After 10 or so desoldering jobs, the tips begin to degrade, making subsequent attempts to desolder components a longer task. Since I bought this item in April 2013, I have bought up to 5 replacement tips in a short span of time. I hope Radio Shack would consider improving the quality of these tips.

              seems like the pin hole on this thing cant suck up the melted solder, original tip worked just fine till it burnt out but this replacement is worthless

                  this is the only thing i go to radioshack for. it is the most efective desoldering tool that i have come across, unfortunately the tips need to be replaced constantly. great marketing... i might feel more inclined to shop at radioshack if i thought they sold anything of reasonable quality. too bad.

                      We use these every day to replace transistors off of circuit boards. However - as the other reviewers note, they don't last very long. If you leave the desoldering iron for a long time (say 8hrs a day), after about 3 days the metal gets very brittle. That being said, when new, the tips work quickly and spreads the heat well. After a few uses, they have to be replaced or you'll be waiting a LOOONG time for the joint to desolder completely.

                      We have to keep a ton of these in-stock and you should consider that too.

                      Trying to find an alternative.

                          I have had one for many years and it works great for removing components from boards. I have had the same tip for at least 10 years and it is ready to be changed. I hope the replacements hold up as well, but based on recent reviews I am concerned they have changed the metal alloy. We'll see...

                            If you are looking for a desoldering tool that actually works, this is it. It makes quick work of removing electronic components from a circuit board.

                            The bad thing is the tips are total junk. I bought my unit about 3 weeks ago. The tip that came with the unit lasted me exactly one day before it began to crumble. I bought 3 replacement tips and those were somewhat better quality than the original, yet I have already gone through 2 of those tips in the past 3 weeks. They simply begin to crumble after a while. It can't be that hard to make a steel tip that wont break, after all I am just moving tin and lead.

                            As I said, it works well so it is still worth buying the tips for me.

                                very poor quality product. Extremely short usable life. Would have not bought the iron and tips if I knew the tip life was so short. If you buy this product, be sure to buy several tips to complete your project.

                                  This works with the de-soldering Iron. They don't seem to last very long. They use to make a Iron Clad tip that held up real well and lasted about four times as long as the standard tip. I'd give that one 5 stars but not these.

                                  This tip is very useful for desoldering parts from circuit boards, but as others have commented it wears out fairly quickly. One tip is good for a couple of projects. Make sure you have a few spares in the drawer.
