Huh. I have had no problem with the radio shack leads. 

 

 

Me, neither.  Used them in dozens of Samsungs, LG's, and Whirlpool VMW's.  You can't force them in; the name of the game with these leads is finesse.  If you're breaking these leads, you'll break all fine-point leads, regardless of brand.  Time to review your technique, Brother Patricio.

Patricio, I'm not trying to pry but we need to have a man to man talk.
What do you prefer, back probing or are you inserting from a frontal position? Size does matter, you know, but you still have to be gentle albeit for different reasons. If you have a thin small tool, you have to slide it in gently so as to not damage your tool. But if your tool is of the long and thick variety, you should be more concerned about damaging the hole. Having the proper size is certainly useful, but knowing how to use what you have is more important and will lead to making your customer not only satisfied but also ecstatic.

Thank you for your input Durham.  You a funny guy,  How come you ain't a standup?  I think you more of a tongue guy. :wink:

1) Sat for 30+ seconds then rack moved to 2 o'clock not passing GO then stayed parked.

2) Did not check for matched readings only some kind of continuity, did not have meter on audio was not checking for low resistance.

 

Forced to stop checking because radio Shack mini pin probe broke trying to insert into connector.   I need to find a better set of small probes as this is the 2nd set of RS probes to break trying to insert in connector.   Where may I obtain a couple of sturdy probes for my meter that I can use on this small pins & wires?

 

Thank You Scott.

Fluke TL80A Basic Test Lead Set, Silicone, 600V, 1m Oal  Tis the one I get to use.  works well for the last 11 month!
