  • does not work with tower pro micro servo. Arm doesn’t fit on servo ‘hub’.

  • Tried this with recommended servo, rob-09065 and it fit and the gripper worked ok.

  • I’ve looked into the wr703 router and you have to reflash it using openwrt written in linux. Don’t know linux and don’t have linux laptop!

  • found a way to do it - use a vise. You have to carefully line up the pins with the corresponding wires. The first time I tried I shorted out some of the pins. It seems to take a lot of pressure to pressed through the cable. I wasn’t using sparkfun cable, so I don’t known if that is the problem.
    I saw a youtube video that showed the process, but he barely used any pressure. His connector was a three piece kind.

  • Is there some special tool or technique for attaching these to ribboncable. I thought I could press down with a small screwdriver and ended up bending the pins!

  • Can this be used in the Costco ‘wind-up’ flashlight? the one on it has died.

No public wish lists :(
