Repeat the above process for the other side of the resistor.

To complete the discharge tool, strip the ends of the wires.

To discharge from small points, it may be helpful to cut the exposed ends of wire into a point shape and solder them to maintain the shape. Alternatively, the probes commonly used on multimeters can be soldered to the wires to create a more precise discharge tool. For large electrolytic capacitors used in power supplies, electric motor start circuits and camera flash units you may want to solder 1 end to a large alligator clip and the other to a well insulated screw driver.
