From telegraph.co.uk / jonathan mcmahon: A few words on telegraphs, pins, and pinheads.
From telegraphforum.com / jason mcmahan: I’m back with another article about pins and pinsheads, a fun, yet very real topic in the telegraph industry.
From theregister.co/jason mccahon: Pin and pinhead etiquette is a topic that is rarely discussed.
In this article, I’m going to cover the basics of pin and pin head etiquette and how to tell if you have the right pins and how you should be looking for a new set.
Here’s how I know that my pin and the pinhead I have are both the same size, which can be verified by the fact that they both have the same length of pins and the same width of pins.
First, a little history lesson: pins are pins on the ends of electrical wires.
They can be made out of any material, but usually have a metallic sheen to them.
These pins are used for everything from powering up devices, to connecting switches, to attaching a telephone wire to a computer.
The wires inside the pin and to the pin head have a diameter of about 1mm.
This is a standard diameter for the pin in a pinhead.
It should be noted that pinheads are designed to hold up to 20,000 pins.
The pinhead is designed to handle 1,000 pin connections.
A pinhead and a pin are made of different materials.
Pins are made from metal and can be found in many kinds of materials including, but not limited to: stainless steel, aluminum, plastic, wood, paper, rubber, plastic tubing, metal wire, copper wire, and many more.
When I buy a pin, I expect it to be the same thickness as my pinhead, and that it will be the exact same diameter as the pin.
That is why I have to know that the pin is the same in diameter and thickness.
Pinheads are sold in two different sizes: the standard pin and a custom pinhead that is made specifically for my pin, and the custom pin has a wider diameter than the standard one.
To confirm that a pin is made from the same material, I can check by simply measuring the pin diameter on the standard pins.
For example, the pin I have on my pin head has a diameter about 1/16 inch larger than the pin on the pinheads I buy.
If you don’t have a standard pinhead you can order one at your local electronics store or online.
Once I have a pin and its size confirmed, I then make sure it is compatible with my pin.
If I have no pin I can also test it with a wire I have already soldered on.
Finally, I take the pin that is already connected to the wall and pull the wire into the pinhole.
I will take care to not bend or break the pin, which I can tell by taking it apart.
If the pin breaks while in use, it will snap on the wire that is attached to the pins, which will cause the wire to snap on to the wire in the pin hole.
Some pins are not compatible with all pins, so I have had to make a choice to either purchase one of my pins or an alternative pinhead for a specific pin.
