Shack notes: Soldapullt de-soldering tools

I’ve owned an Edsyn DS 017 Soldapullt for probably as long as I’ve owned my Weller TC202 soldering station.     Edsyn claims that this is the original de-soldering soldering tool, and it very well could be. It works great, I’ve de-soldered many joints with it over the years. A couple of months ago, I decided that maybe this tool could use some rejuvenation. At the very least, I wanted to find a replacement O-ring to see if that might improve the suction. There is a maintenance kit for this uni...
