comment Noun for for u-shaped bend on electrical component's pin (wire) to aid in placement (Beading / Ribbing / Crimp)?
Jim has it right, the confusion is caused by the German word "Sicke", which seems to be used for both, the reinforcing bend e.g. in an angle bracket, and the formed leads of an electronics component. jwpat chose to ignore my description and answered the question in the "title" directly, giving me the information and an example that helps very much. Thank you all for contributing.
