I try to use paper clip but they are too fat to enter on those kind of hole

good but they are soft.

the wire will have the same purpose of the one of the solderless adapter, it will be inserted on a board hole of the same size of the D0 point

Thanks

I'm already a electronic technician with great skills on soldering, I use flash tsop by soldering wires directly to the main flash.

I have like 8 solderless adapters adapters here, tree different versions.

I just want find were i can buy a roll of this sturdy wire to try to make a homemade solderless adapter, and if all goes find i will make another tuto to offers a cheap way option since those solderless adapter are almost disappear from stores and also the price are blowing up.

thanks!

Edit: Nevermind, I thought you needed flexible wire not hard-wire for the pins.
