Step 6:

Properly done, the insulated part of the wire should partially wrap around a pin before
the bare wire.  That makes the wire less likely to unwrap a bit  and short this wire to that
wire (when you are digging around under it trying to find a problem?)  and makes the
connection quite a bit stronger.

For the soldered ends, I first tin the pin with a dab of solder.
Then make a tiny hook in the end of the wire, slip it over the pin and hold it steady while
you solder it together. Usually that means just touching the tip of the iron to the connection
for a second or two.

Those connections tend to be more fragile as the wire is connected solidly and wiggling
it can cause it to fracture at the solder joint.
hi can you provide me detail for some discussion <br> <br>email: subrotradeindia@gmail.com
Very good instructions. Trying to make it now.
Great instructable!
I had to re-do this thing to add steps. <br>Couldn't figure out how to do that after it was published.<br>So my apologies if it caused anybody any problems.<br>(It was my first time, after all!)<br>Richard
