Re: Andy's Postbag and random ebay links

I still use a pair of sidecutters that I inherited from a field engineer ~ 12 years ago :D Inherited = he forgot them at my home. I have a large (about two foot long) ratchet wrench somewhere that literally fell of the back of a lorry, and damn near took out my windscreen. Its quite a good one too....

Re: Andy's Postbag and random ebay links

More pliers and side cutters. I probably didn't need them, but they were in the going extra cheap bin in one of the two identical cheap German supermarkets.. Four in the (damaged) package, picked up for less than £1 per pair. Surprisingly well constructed, solid German engineering. Cutters_and_Plier...

Re: do we need or want a smoke generation section ?

Multi-pops always score double on the smoke-o-meter. :twisted: I once popped a whole bunch of small transistors by failing to realise that the "equivalents" had the pins in a different order. I very carefully removed all of the old set, neatly soldered in all the new ones, switched on and ...

Re: SMD fuse, help with identification

Nice bodge! I would probably have simply left the old fuse in place and tacked the wires on to the ends of it. After all, it wasn't about to "un-fuse" itself any day soon. Will it work... course it will :D One other suggestion. Go easy on the hot snot holding down the fuse, you don't want ...
