I've used the suction bulb before. What I liked better was the solder
wick. It is a copper braid that you get hot with the solder. It wicks
the solder right up. You can get the area pretty clean this way. It can
even wick solder out of a thru-hole (in a PC board). Several years ago,
I aquired a vacuum pump driven de-solering station. Pretty nice. I used
this on a couple of Mac-11c ECUs when installing a socket for the QLCC
chip. This is by far, the way to go. Barring that, go with the solder wick!
