    Hemostats are excellent for holding solder wick so you don't burn your fingers or melt the plastic roll the wick comes in ... not that I've done that.

    I bought three of these curved and straight. Poorly manufactured, terrible really. All went straight to the garbage can.

    • You may have gotten some bad ones. We use these all the time and they've worked quite well for us. If you still have them, contact cservice@sparkfun.com if you're unhappy with them.
