SparkFun Electronics will be closed in observance of memorial day on Monday, May 29th. We will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, May 30th. Any orders placed after 2pm Mountain Time on Friday, May 26th will process and ship out on Tuesday, May 30th.
Description: This is the Large SparkFun Solder-able Breadboard. A bare PCB that is the exact size as our full-size breadboard with the same connections to pins and power rails. This board is especially useful for preserving a prototype or experiment you just created on a solderless breadboard by soldering all the pieces in place.
The large solder-able breadboard also includes real estate for screw terminal connectors and a trace down the center gutter for ground.

I made the most complex soldering project that I have ever done, using this breadboard, and it worked great. The only issues came from my own lack of soldering skill, but that is improving some. It took a while to complete the task, because I was working with a new iron and new lead-free solder, so it was a learning experience.
I like that the breadboard has 2 separate power rails, with the option of joining them, which I did not do in this case, because I needed 2 different voltages on those rails.
The only thing I don’t like is that there isn’t a project enclosure that fits the board. I would have gladly paid more money and ordered one, had it been available.
Otherwise, works exactly as you’d hope
I really like the ground bus down the center channel (I wish the smaller board had that as well) and the provided jumper connections make it very easy to join the power rails on either side without having to use wires. You can also join the central ground bus to the negative rail with another provided jumper, and even optionally ground the mounting holes.
I used this board to create a +12v/-12v power supply for a synthesizer project; the extra ground bus made it a lot easier to deal with two power rails.
