Driver chips

Install the driver chips next. The pins will only fit in one direction. It may be necessary to straighten the pins slightly before inserting them into the board. I found it easiest to begin inserting the pins by tipping the chip and starting the first two pins on the chip on the right hand side and then gradually inserting the rest of the pins into the holes as you lower the pins towards the left.

I alternated the soldering on the pins to keep down heat. Then I trimmed the leads.
