Step 4: Cut the resistor

Picture of Cut the resistor
The first step is to cut the resistor.  Take some wire cutter and cut the legs off the resistor.

Go as close to the middle as possible.

Throw away the middle and keep the legs.

Sorry, bad reading ... Is the resistor really important ? I think you can use a paper clip to make the legs.
Hello, I was wondering what kind of resistor is it ? is it a strong one ? How many ohm ?

not to be mean or anything, but resistors are kinda expensive.
to cut off the wire of the thing just to get the wire is something I woudn't do

I guess it all verries from person to person.
