Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Forum Index : Microcontroller and PC projects : Chip-leg straighteners...Am I the last to know that they even exist?

  palcal said  Why aren't they straight when you buy them ???

Automatic TH insertion equipment wants the DIP pins slightly bent out. The machine puts pressure on the pins to straighten them as it inserts the DIP into a PCB.
