Step 5: Bend the legs

I'm using a slightly non-standard motor, one that doesn't have the usual soldering tabs on it. If you've got a motor with usual soldering tabs you can skip this parts.

Because of the type of tabs I have on my motor I need to bend one of my wires. To do this I just take some pliers, grip the very end of one of the resistor legs, and bend at a 90 degree angle.

I only do this on one.

Again, if you've got regular solder tabs you won't need to do this.
