CD4050BEE4 broken leg.
  • Something happened yesterday, i broke a little metal leg of the CD4050BEE4 thing. Do you think it’s a good idea to repair it with tin(making a new artificial leg made of tin)? The thing is that i’m in france, and command a new one cost me a lot in shipping.

  • If there’s enough of end of the leg protruding you can solder onto it.

    Get the leg from a spare chip or a piece of small wire. Insert it into the socket where the missing leg would be. Insert chip, tin the end of the wire/spare leg. Press against chip and hold (with pliers), heat up to tack it on.
