Fault or not regarding solder

Dear Mutables,

after a break i’m soldering my Ambika and make maybe a mistake. For the Jumper JP-1 to JP-6 i solder from the picture the left one instead the right one. The legs are not so long.
Is this a mistake or not?

Thank you very much for an answer.

All the best,

They should all be long (like the one on the right).

This is strange, why do you have two different parts? The one on the right looks too long.

Dear Olivier,

sorry i don’t no why. Here once again a picture with a measurment.
Please advise, thank you.

All the best,

Left one!

Dear Olivier,

thank you very much for this good news :wink:
Hopefully my last question to this, can i use the other one’s if i cutted a little bit down?

All the best,

waldemaR

Yes, you can. I mostly use them and cut them to my taste, as at some time i ordered a batch of the wrong size.

Dear nightworxx,

good news too. So i will gohead.
Thank you All for the fast reponse and help.

All the best,

waldemaR

The 6 soldered on the mobo have their legs cut anyways…

Just a little tip regarding what is the “right” length for the SIL header pins: The perfect length is exactly the length of the plastic frame so you can use that as a guide to cut longer pins

Dear altitude,

thank you, you are 100% right.
