Feel free to bring projects you want bent to Noisebridge!  You can come any time, but Monday nights are perfect, 'cause Circuit Hacking Monday happens at 7pm every week -- lots of hardware geeks of all skill levels collect and help each other.
 
Best,
Mitch.

Not all bending is best done on the solder side ....

One method of Bending is using clips to component leads whilst sussing out "what" it does. 

In the case of Pot Hacks=  it's an easy way of using a pot with microclip end leads to pull a circuit point up to volts or down to ground.

I don't know which bin NB currently has suitable clips in but I"ve also made clips from midsize safety pins and insulation sleeving. 

Slide the insulation from a stripped wire of appropriate size over a safety pin's sharp end- dimensioned to reproduce factory clip's slide insulation after the point end of aforementiones pin is bent back into a smallish "J"hook suited for holding onto transistor/resistor leads etc.

Hook goes around lead. Insulation slides toward hook.. Bend away:> 

Sighs. me has to now do a piccy session.

Heyas!



I would like to learn how to add a variable potentiometer to a variety of circuits.

Sometimes it is possible to find cool bends by messing with the solder side of a circuit board.

I would like to put a pot in some of those places, but need to learn how to do this properly.



Is this something I can do at the meetup in SF?
