I am Upgrading My Soldering Station to JBC Tools, I Ran across this JBC Tools CLMB-A Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner For Parts/Repair.
Photos Were Corrupted Not sure Why? I will have to Tear it down again but for now the videos will have to do!

Based on my previous experiences, I’ve learned that it’s often more cost-effective to explore alternative options. In some cases, the price discrepancy can be quite significant, with the company charging as much as 8 to 13 times the actual value of the product, such as a $3.00 off the shelf belt with no part number being offered for $25 to $40.
JBC CLMB-A PCB Parts: PIC18F13K22 (10/03 I Did attempt to read the PIC18F13K22 for a backup just in-case it is needed for a future repair with the XELTEK IS01 it is locked I may have had a bad connection i will try again when I open it up to replace the belt when it arrives)
I am Missing The Tin Collection Tray Part # JBC 0016806 Will See If JBC Still sells this part.
Ultrasonic Cleaning (Headphone User Warning)
Awaiting the arrival of the brushes, tray, and belt. Once these parts are received, I will use the CLMB-A for a while and provide a comprehensive report. I will likely create another video detailing the bearing replacement when the time comes. However, based on my initial test, cleaning these parts proved to be effective. There doesn’t appear to be a significant load on them.
This CLMB-A – Senior Tip Cleaner seems to be a well constructed item, Lets hope the brushes CLMB-A8 at slightly over $100 a set last 3-4 times longer then the hakko brushes. Time will tell but looks to be a quality unit.
I believe the brushes are inside, but unfortunately, it arrived later in the evening than expected, and I haven’t had the chance to open it yet. The brushes were ordered on October 25th, and I was initially informed that they were in stock. However, they were not available and I was not contacted by JBC. If I had been notified at the time of the order or shortly there after that they were out of stock, I could have either chosen an alternative, alternate vendor, or JBC could have checked with me to see if a substitute for the CLMB-A7 Blue Mandrel ones was ok, as the only difference is the color. Unfortunately, JBC’s lack of communication and addressing the situation promptly led to a significant delay in shipping. JBC Ignored my calls and attempts to get this resolved in a timely manor.
