Tiny test pins. Stolen from Missus...

Tiny test pins. Stolen from Missus...

Tiny test pins. Stolen from Missus...

(OP)
I got soo tired when trying to connect to a little breadboard weighing around ten grammes and using test clips/cables with 1 mm2 Cu cables. The tiny EZE-hooks dont't work very well if you need to attach to female connectors and they can't be used to probe tiny IC pads.

So I took a tour around the house and found this:



Great for little projects. You can even stack them by sticking them into the cable. Color coding is in the pin-head.

And - if you haven't tried Blockly yet: DO! It is serious stuff in LEGO disguise.

Half full - Half empty? I don't mind. It's what in it that counts.

Nice idea. I just realized the pins also connect mechanically with the wire.

The De Luxe version: Put on some shrink tubing to make it stronger.

Yes VE1 - there was some blood-shed. Those pins need a woman's delicate and trained fingers.

True sign of a good engineer... finding things seemingly totally unrelated to the task at hand, but in reality provides the perfect solution..

Skogsgurra,

I got the turtle to level 10...

Whatcha doing with your propeller?

What I do with the Propeller? Having fun! Mostly.

But it will turn into a shaft voltage supervision and alarm thingy when I got all mechanical details and environment (heat, oil mist, vibrations and heavy EMI - running on VFD/PWM controlled motors up to a few megawatts size) under control.

The reason I use the propeller is that I can switch between 96 MHz and around 20 kHz by setting a few bits in the clock register. And, yes, I usually feed the display from one of the output pins. Idling at around 25 uA. Of course, the parallel processors and the flexible A and B counters are also used fully.
