The Lead Bender for Resistors and other electronic parts is a very helpful, simple piece of plastic (real mould, not 3D printed like those from Aliexpress)!

This forming tool or bending template provides you with an easy way to get the exact distance between two resistor leads that you need to solder right.

It works for axial leaded resistors, diodes, chokes, capacitors and so on with a body length of 4.5 to 13.5 mm, which includes for example resistors up to 5W.

We here at UNIVERSAL-SOLDER use a lot of leaded resistors for prototyping or assembling DIY kits for our customers and have found this tool to be extremely handy to produce a constant high assembling quality.

Just insert your resistor into the groove of the Lead Bender for Resistors and bend the leads over the edges.

    For a tool I didn’t know I needed, I love this. Bending leads on components is always so fiddly, this makes it super easy and you can do multiple at a time. Doing rows of resistors has never been easier.

    That’s it. Does what it says. Reasonably priced.

    It won’t make you Ben Eater level good, but certainly upped my game.

    If you are doing thru-hole soldering, this is a “must have”. This allows for very efficient bending of the component leads and the components just drop in. Nice, neat construction when you are finished. I had tried other lead formers which did not center the body of the component so I ordered this one and centering is now no problem. Shipping is a little expensive and the product was slow to arrive (although well within the advertised window). Well worth the extra cost.

    Nice sturdy build and will work nicely for measuring out and bending the ends neatly for making hook up wires. Came all the way down from Canadia to Bemidji Minnesota, but got stuck at customs for a bit.

    If you are doing a lot of breadboarding then this tool keeps your resister layout neat and tidy. Keep one on hand in your kit.

    Makes Lead Bending much easier

    The CANADUINO Lead Bender tool is very useful for getting good bends for resistor leads, and makes it much easier to do.The tool is of very sturdy precision construction.

    Want those perfect bends before you solder, this is the tool for you, inexpensive too.
