Sometime back (can't find the post!) there was a discussion on using these edge / pcb connectors to fabricate 2, 3, or more conductor male / female connectors. Based on that discussion, I bought several and now I am ready to use them. However, the details are not obvious or are lost in my fading memory. Two questions:
1) the male parts have nice break off indentations and it is simple to break them in groups of 2, 3 or whatever. the female parts do not break cleanly. is there a trick or did I buy the wrong items? How do I separate the female elements?
2) the connection pins for the wires are the small protrusions in the pictures- I assume the typical approach to connect a wire is to have good soldering skills and solder the wire to these small pins along with some heat shrink tubing. Is this correct or are there other methods?
