Title: Prototyping hardware suggestions (wire leads, etc.)
Post by: tatou on March 30, 2016, 08:57:55 AM
Hi all,

I have a few boards/kits under my belt, so now I am starting to breadboard/mod/prototype circuits to experiment and learn more. But I've found wiring up offboard components (pots, toggles, etc.) to be annoying: banana clips are often too big and clumsy, but I don't want to actually solder hookup wire to these temporary components, especially if I'm trying to find the "right" pot value, etc.

Attached is a screenshot of some "slide-on" wire terminals on solder lugs I saw in a YouTube video... but I haven't had any luck guessing what these would be called to try and buy some. Any help?

Also, any other tool/hardware suggestions that would be useful for prototyping pedals is welcome. Thanks!

Thanks! I'll give those a try.
