bent jumper pin

Recommended Posts

Got my Venus today, opened packet to find the catch fell off the box and the top of the box is bust on 2 corners lol, but not crushed and it is only a box.

Looking forward to building.

 

Floppy cable works.......(on my abit anyway)

 

bent jumper pin on the audio, will it bend back without breaking?

i remember using a mechanical pencil to bend some bent pins back into place on my 386 back in the day. i wouldn't recommend using this method because im not sure what graphite on the pins could do to it hehe

graphite wouldn't hurt the pin. If the graphite managed to get on the board it might bridge two connections(unlikely). If you use a pencil just blow off the dust. Or just use a pair of needle nosed pliers.
