Simple Transistor Socket or Other Pin Type Electronic Part

About: 18 | Music | LEDs | Deep Bass | Light Shows | Ramen | Computers | Sound Systems | Radioshack | Outdoors Thats pretty much my life!

I did this beacause im making a cnc machine and i need a 12v regulator for the driver encloser. And this will let me change the regulator if it burns out without having to desolder it.

    The is a great idea, I'll try and remember it next time! Not limited to regulators, you could use this for power transistors too (mind the right connections though!)
