The Jonard Dp-100 high-vacuum spring-operated desoldering pump removes solder from printed circuit boards. The Teflon (PTFE) nonstick coated tip and cushioned shock reduction minimize board damage. The corrosion-resistant spring and an insulated vacuum pulse provide long life. The pump has a regulated return of 1 millisecond + or - 30% and uniform reset pressure of 11 inch-pounds + or - 20%. It has a 13" long corrosion-resistant plastic body.

1) I noticed it was losing suction after a few uses and I opened it up and realized the o-ring didn't fit that tight and was only lightly coated with oil. I recoated it with plumber's silicon grease (Vaseline would probably work too) and it has worked great ever since. I put it on my hand and I could feel it suck my skin in the nozzle (it's pretty powerful, but didn't seem so powerful that it would cause damage or anything). So clean and regrease if you ever have problems.
2) The solder HAS TO BE HOT. I found that the best way was to apply heat, melt the solder, and then while my iron is still in the edge of the solder put the nozzle of the pump in the solder (pushing the soldering iron tip out of the way) and fire it immediately. The nozzle seems to withstand heat well and has shown no sign of heat damage. The technique took a little getting use to, but once I got it it was easy. Better than always buying tons of solder wick.
3) When I was doing some research on them I came across a youtube video showing this one. So if you'd like to see it used and the size, technique etc. here's the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw4lZGk90i4
However, this is definitely not for production work. After about 200 uses, the plastic clip which holds the spring to the plunger breaks, rendering the unit unusable. Replacements aren't available.
Issue number two is that the plastic tip wears extremely quickly. While replacements are available, they really shouldn't melt so quickly.
It wouldn't take much to fix these issues and make this a five-star review.
First impressions were that is was huge! Change is difficult. And I missed the handy size of my earlier tools. But this works so much better and can do things lesser solder suckers cannot dream of. I am still using the original tip, which I notched to fit OVER the tip of my soldering iron all those years ago. When used like this, it clears solder incredibly well. Also it is still going strong, compared to the 1 year lifespan I got out of the small, sub $10.00 solder suckers.
FYI, if you depress the plunger all the way in and press the button, it locks the device into a more compact size for carry/travel.
