Have you ever been going along building a circuit on a breadboard, and suddenly, you need to check something with the multimeter, but your good probes are nowhere to be found, and your backups are too large to fit?
This instructable will go through how to make a standard 1/4W carbon film resistor into a cheap probe adapter for use with breadboards.
Step 1: Gather parts.
This instructable is fairly simple, and only requires four items.
A generic 1/4W carbon film resistor (the most common type. If you are unsure of your resistor type, its probably this)
Some needlenose pliers.
