I thought I’d glue a surface-mount 7414 onto a resistor pack, just to make it easier to prototype. Then I thought, hmm… a resistor pack would be useful to pull down signals when the driving logic hasn’t be initialized.
So, here is the picture:
I soldered wires onto the resistor pack first, then submerged them in water so they wouldn’t come undone when I soldered the other end.
Works like a charm (0.1″ prototyping spacing).
