Introduction: Easily Connect a Multimeter to Your Breadboard With Jumper Wires and Paperclips
I was bored of having to push the multimeter legs onto the jumper wires, so I created a simple way to attach them directly to the breadboard, with two removable jumper wires and a couple of paperclips.
Step 1: Tools
For making this, we need:
-Two wire jumpers.
-A soldering iron.
-A breadboard (obviously).
-Very very basic soldering skills.
(Yes, the pliers are photoshopped, because I forgot to put mine on the photo)
Step 2: Open a Paperclip and Turn It Around the Tester Pin
Step 3: Cut Off the Excess
We only need around 1.5cm for soldering the wire.
Step 4: Solder a Jumper Wire to the Paperclip
Remember the 1.5cm leg that we left on the paperclip? It's time to solder a jumper wire to it. I'm awful at soldering, so expect a better result than mine.
Step 5: Improve the Contact
For better contact, apply pressure on the paperclip while it's on the multimeter.
Step 6: Repeat the Same Process and TEST!
Now we are ready to go, test whatever you want on the breadboard.
