  • Ah, fascinating! A company I used to work for also used pogo pins extensively in test fixtures. But, since mechanical engineers designed the fixtures, our approach was a bit different. We machined a plastic plate to match the board under test and inserted the pins in pogo pin receptacles in the plates. Pogo pins do wear out eventually, and using the receptacles makes replacing them faster and easier when you can’t readily carry the fixture over to a soldering station.

No public wish lists :(
