    Is this part in the Sparkfun Eagle library?

  • I need crimp terminals for my stupid 9v batt. clips with stranded wire, but this'll probably stay on longer. And I don't wanna have to go right back to The Shack.

    • If you're trying to use the battery clips with a breadboard, tinning the wires with a little bit of solder will effectively change those stranded wires into solid wires you can push into the breadboard.
