    3.5 jack or 6mm jack?

    Soldering SOIC-8 opamp to a BrownDog?

    im doing it with a 0.050 solder- the only size i have available around me. you should probably go for a smaller diameter solder, 0.025 would probably save you from alot of hassle it really is simple once you get the hang of it. CHEERS

    Having problems with my DMM

    yeh the leads give me a reading of around 0.05 ohm when i short them before measuring. like i said i can get a stable reading only when i press on the resistor leads really hard, or if i hold the leads of the multi' and bind them to the leads of the resistor with my fingers- doing the...
