No Breadboard???
« on: November 14, 2003, 12:12:56 PM »
And want to interniw different Jfets etc?
  I use Longsocket [five or more pins in a row...
  I assign the pins to where they're connected in the schematic at these points:
   Pin 1 ['bottom pin']   source/emitter,
   Pin 2 [of the socket] gate/base,
   Pin 3  collector
   Pin 4 collector
   pin 5 toward Pos. rail in negative ground ckt.
             ..  [or whatever pin assignments you choose of course]
  Then just orient the leads [say D,G,S]  of whatever transistor in pins 1 through 3, then insert different fised R values in pins 4 and 5 to bias the different transistors you would like to try out.
Convention creates following, following creates convention.
