So I bought a bunch of DB3 microswitches and diodes. Can someone give me some tips on how to bend the leads to prep for soldering?
I believe I should be passing the leads through the holes on the terminals to help secure the diode. What is the best way to do it? Or is it actually helpful?
I tried a few times and the best I came up with was to create a sort of "omega" shape: Ω
I passed the ends of the leads from the inside of the terminals to the outside and then bent them up with needlenose pliers.
Want to find out the best way to do it without mangling the diode leads!
