Report Transistor tester in Projects Q/A Posted September 18, 2003 :) sorry if i sound too naive about handling cmos. 1. how about if i have to align the pins to the socket, what do i use to straighten the pin. someone advise that i can use a long nose plier provide the plier is insulated and i dont touch the pin directly, also they say i dont have to worry about electrostatic energy here in the Philippines bcoz we have humid weather here. Is this true?2. my workbench is made of wood and also have wooden floor.3. do i have the plier attach to a ground?your reply would be highly appreciated. thaanx in advance!
