Silicone Grease where is it used? | 10 September, 2008

I just purchased a soldering station and it came with the silicone grease for the desoldering gun and say's for cleaning spring filter and filter pipe, now do I just smooth this grease all over the spring and tube the spring goes in?

Your supplier is probably the best source of advice on this issue. Some offer tips like: http://www.n0ss.net/hakko_808_notes.pdf

Depending on the design, some use grease to reduce air leakage on: * Filter tubes * Gaskets or O-rings * Threads

We have no relationship, nor receive benefit from the company referenced above.
