Default Re: Poor solderability of old components, solutions?

To get leads clean I use a green nylon scrubbing pad, just clamp it round the lead and drag it through twice. Cheap and very effective.

I use an off cut of fibreglass net rod rather than a fibreglass pen, about as effective but you don't get the sharp fibres and it will last a very long time
