I'm a stay at home dad now. A lower back injury then surgery kept me from returning back to work doing cabinetry. I like working with my hands and messing with all kinds of things!

    it is possible to repair and resolder the leg back in to place you can remove some of the black chip casing to exspose more metal to solder too, or use a jumper wire to complete the connection.

    user scottm477 posted a picture of his connected projected above.- use the alligator clips to connect to the 3.5mm jack. connect the opposite end of the alligator clip to the signal generator, cut or use extra wire, power on both units. you should be able to generate sound frequency's through the audio testbed that correspond to the frequency numbers on the signal generator.Also, (if you own one) you could also use an oscilloscope to "see" the signal being generated as shown in the instcructable in step 9.

    you can add the jumper if you want, it appears that you can add pass through and could tap into the 5v and ground by also adding the jumper pins. ( you do not want to jump them to one another.) user scottm477 posted a picture of his connected projected above.- use the alligator clips to connect to the 3.5mm jack. connect the opposite end of the alligator clip to the signal generator, cut or use extra wire, power on both units. you should be able to generate sound frequency's through the audio testbed that correspond to the frequency numbers on the signal generator.Also, (if you own one) you could also use an oscilloscope to "see" the signal being generated as shown in the instcructable in step 9.
