$5.80 at Amazon and called a solder sucker.
One of the things at Radio Shack actually worth having is a de-soldering iron.
Looks like a soldrering iron, but has a big squeeze bub.
You heat the solder joint with the tip while holding the bulb squeezed (adding a little fresh solder to get some flux in there helps melt the old stuff) and when it liquifies you release the bulb to suck the solder away from the joint.
Without squeezing the bulb, it can serve as a soldering iron in a pinch.
