Just a quick question on this desolder pump (i'm thinking of getting one myself).

How does it stand up to the heat? The tip on mine (don't know the material) has held up pretty well to heat. I can hold it against the iron or under the air unless i'm using very high temperatures. (There's some minimal deformity around the tip)

I would absolutely f*%king LOVE a cheap desolder pump that like yours forms a good seal, and takes the heat well enough that i can actually melt the bloody solder
