I'm at my wit's end trying to figure out methods to separate Dupont wires.
I ordered an 8 pin SOIC clip from eBay. Due to low funds I had to opt for the cheapest alternative. It arrived along with a 40 bundle of Dupont wires.
Initially, after attempting to connect the Dupont wires to the clip, I noticed that the Dupont connector is too large for the clip (4 connectors to a side) to fit all 4 sides of the clip. After stripping the clip's plastic fitting out of it to a barebones wire with the metallic adapter it fits.
Will the Dupont wire connector as a barebones metallic adapter short out my chip if I use it to connect it to a Raspberry Pi?
I'm trying to get it to a state where I can reprogram the chip with my Raspberry Pi without shorting it.
Would using paper in between be sufficient to stop it from frying? Nothing else will fit to separate it unless there is an alternative I could do with household items. There really isn't any alternatives for me as I can't afford a "Pomona" clip due to their expensive pricing.
