Solderless breadboard lead length

  1. I'm just getting started. I've used my solderless breadboard a few
    times now, but for some reason last night I was having problems. For
    some reason, I was getting no current. After debugging the circuit for
    a while, I realized that the problem seemed to be the leads on my wires
    weren't quite long enough to reach all the way down into the socket. I
    stripped these wires myself (not that tedious when you are watching TV
    or something) and I thought I made them long enough to reach down in but
    not expose any metal above the socket. Apparently not, even though I
    felt the friction fit. How long should they be? Is there a standard
    length?
     
  2. 10mm should do it.
    (Standard ?? thats mine)
