I see a 555 hack coming...

You see correctly. I've been giving dirty looks to my Hakko 707 and it's probably gonna get some sort of modification.
*Except AC/DC adapters on eBay. Avoid them all!

It is standard procedure, and essential, to let the pump 'run on' for a second or two to clear the tip after the tool is removed from the solder joint. I find it difficult to remember to do this, and my Pace MBT WILL clog reliably if I forget for a few joints. I have never seen a desolder system with a pump run-on timer, and intend to fit one the next time I have an idle hour.
BT
In effect, my 15 years old JBC desoldering station has this: a timer that power the pump for about one second after you relase the trigger buttom
But it has a lot of other ptoblems, so I bought a ZD-985 (for less thr cost of the spares my JBC requires, and I'm happy with it..
