Hello Applefritter Forum,
im almost to the point where i will start to solder in the TI Sockets for my Apple 1 Replica.
Everyone knows that these Sockets have sometimes contact problems.
So i'm wondering if you guys "did" something to your Sockets before you install them?
Like put them over night in acetic acid or something like this.
Just to remove the oxidation on the pins for (maybe) better contact.
Or maybe even goldplatet them?
The reason is that my Sockets are slightly tarnish (Sorry don't know if this is the right word).
You can have a look on the pictures.
I'm also wondering if the pins are coated or just raw copper?
Thanks for your help!
Best Regards, Josua
