Arduino Proto Breadboard

A while ago I bought an Arduino proto-shield in kit form from www.nuelectronics.com, but the problem is that it requires soldering to fix it all together but does allow you to do small temporary circuits. However fitting a small breadboard to the proto-shield makes it more useful. Small breadboards are available but the one I bought was too long by about 10 holes. The alternative is to have a breadboard sat next to the Arduino which then can get quite cumbersome, this method makes a small neat solution for small breadboard applications.

  • The breadboard was marked for cutting.
  • Cut breadboard with a sharp craft knife
  • Trim end to make it neat
  • I have a couple of push buttons on my proto-shield and the breadboard needed to be trimmed to fit properly
  • Stick breadboard down with double sided sticky pads
