Beginner Electronics – 9 – Necessities!

what's going on everyone my name is Gautam Ward welcome back to electronics episode 9 in this episode we are going to talk about a few of the basic tools

and components that you should really have if you're thinking about getting into electronics now not all of these are necessary but a lot of them are going to be really really nice to have

and none of these really cost a lot so we already know that you're really gonna want some batteries resistors and LEDs but what else well one great thing that's gonna help

you a ton and it's gonna be super easy are battery holders this is a battery holder for two double-a batteries of course we also sell nine volt battery holders they sell for in six double-a

battery holders you can get a variety if you like I have a ton of these two double-a battery holders for some reason and they also have a few 9-volt battery holders they're great because they're

gonna hold your batteries for you and they provide you with wires that you can plug into stuff the next tool is so simple and that is pliers these are some tiny needlenose type pliers are really

really old they have a wire cutter in the middle that doesn't work at all if you're gonna get a wire cutter I highly recommend that you get a tool specifically for cutting and stripping

wires but these needlenose or any type of pliers really are going to help you a lot a lot of times you're going to have to try and get a wire into a tiny place that you can't just do with your hands

pliers are a definite must-have next we're going to talk about two very basic components and those are switches there are all different types of switches here are three that I have I have quite a few

of each of these types this is a really tiny switch you can probably barely see it on this recording right here these are called dip switches and they come tiny like this there yet they also come

eight or four in a row they're really handy to have especially what with what I'm going to show you in a little bit then I have a toggle switch here these are really great for finished projects

having switches and I also have a more tiny switch that I might also use for a few projects I've even put some wires on the bottoms myself because it's easier to work with that way but in general a

few switches are of course a must-have it doesn't really matter what type you get they're usually not too expensive so if you find a few cheap ones you might want to pick them up and see if you like

them or not next we're going to take a look at something very similar the push button I have two types of push buttons this I a dip or rather a flat mount I believe I

could be completely wrong on that push button it's very simple just a really tiny button these are probably my favorite to use when prototyping certain electronics buttons again are another

must-have this is a larger one I put two wires on the bottom myself again and this one's a bit bigger this is something that I would use and a finished product or a finished project

so those are the real things that I just wanted to show you today except there's two more that are extremely important in the last video we created our circuit using just our hands and a few metal

clips and that is really inefficient if we're going to be pro if we're going to be prototyping a bunch of projects you are going to need this is an absolute necessity a couple two to three at

minimum at least in my opinion breadboards this is a solderless breadboard you are definitely going to want these in the next video I'm going to explain how these breadboards work

and how we can use them but trust me right now bread boards are a necessity they allow us to prototype almost any electronic circuit that we want really really easily and along with the

breadboard which we're going to learn about in the next tutorial comes wires now if you have the time and patience to strip a bunch of wires yourself you can go ahead and do that or like me if

you're a bit lazy you can go out online really cheap you can buy a Pew a few priests ripped wires like this or wires like this you might see with a little caps on the end those make prototyping

and sticking them into the breadboard really easy and you can create circuits very easily with some pre-cut wires and a breadboard so I didn't go into any detail about any of these components or

tools that I showed you today I just wanted to get you the ones that I really think that you should have and if you had to choose only two of these to have it's definitely the breadboard

and wires you need to have those so that just about does it for this tutorial in the next tutorial we're going to learn all about these bread boards and how we can make circuits with them thanks for

watching everyone and I'll see you guys in the next tutorial

We talk about necessary tools and components!
