Description Links

The Resistor Lead Bending Tool is a compact and versatile device made from high-impact ABS plastic. This tool is designed to facilitate precise bending of resistor leads to achieve the exact spacing needed for PTH soldering. It is double-sided, offering a range of spacing from 10.16mm to 38.1mm for 1/4 Watt resistors and 12.7mm to 38.1mm for 1/2 Watt resistors.

The Resistor Lead Bending Tool is a staple in the SparkFun PTH soldering kits. It's an invaluable asset when dealing with multiple resistors at once or over extended periods. The tool is straightforward to use: simply insert your 1/4 Watt or 1/2 Watt resistor into the appropriate spacing groove and bend the leads over the edges.

It's worth noting that while the tool is primarily designed for 1/4 Watt and 1/2 Watt resistors, it can also accommodate 1/6 Watt resistors and specific diodes. However, these must be carefully centered before bending to ensure accuracy.

Key Features:

  • Spacing for 1/4 Watt Resistor: 10.16mm - 38.1mm
  • Spacing for 1/2 Watt Resistor: 12.7mm - 38.1mm
  • Constructed from durable, high-impact ABS Plastic

Whether you're a professional electronics technician or a hobbyist, the Resistor Lead Bending Tool from SparkFun is a must-have addition to your toolkit. It simplifies and streamlines the process of PTH soldering, saving you time and ensuring precision in your projects.
