Simple Resistor question - winkydink - 06-22-2012 07:24 PM
I need to replace a resistor on a Philco 48-200. The leads on the new resistor are shorter than the old, and will not reach the posts I need to soder them to.
Q: Can I just soder a wire to one of the leads to make it longer without causing any problems ?

Yes and use shrink wrap or spaghetti to cover.

Or just cut the old resistor close to the body and use the remaining stubs to solder the new one to.
Here goes the ol' heatshrink again.
