More leadbending

When I first began building, one of my concerns was bending the leads with
the right spacing so that I didn't stress the component when mounting it to
the board.I began using a small scrap of perfboard to measure between the
holes,then using it to bend the leads.I put a lead through the inside hole
I measured to, then bend the component flat, bend the other lead over the
outside edge of the perfboard, then transfer the part to the circuit board.
It's very easy. Odd spacings can be accommodated by tilting the component
on the perfboard when bending the leads. ( A 3 x 3/4 in. scrap works
well.)
