Lead forming tool?

by george_graves on Fri Feb 19, 2010 6:55 am

Every once in a while I see a lead forming tool for sale - I noticed that no one really carries these.

Ever other month I need to stuff 200 resistors into boards - would one of these be helpful? I've never used one.

Thanks!

I have the one sold by Evil Mad Scientist Labs - it's great! I love it!

Great not just for resistors, but for custom length jumpers for breadboards.

I don't have one, but I was thinking of getting one. This looks like a cheap enough source of them.

I first saw one in this kit. I didn't get the kit because I have many of the things that are in there.
