  • Do these have top and bottom horizontal rails (looking at the second image) like the larger conventional breadboards?

  • These are great, but I have one question: What’s the best sort of wire to use with them?
    I’ve got some wires from an old Radio Shack kit (the ones with all the springs), but they feel a little loose.
    Just wondering if there’s a best gauge to use, and if tinned stranded wire is better than solid.

    • I’ve always used ethernet twisted pair plenum wire. Plenum CAT5 is 24 AWG solid, whereas the flexible stuff you have in your patch cables is stranded. A 25' piece will last you a few years.

    • In my experience the 22 AWG we carry works great. Also use the solid wire, the stranded doesn’t work as well.

      • Yeah, definitely! I tried several times unsuccesfully to put the stranded wires from a 9v battery clip into one of these breadboards. The tinned-ness had come off, too. The Devil must have infested those wires.

  • I ment close after so but oops I screwed up.

  • I used this with the PICAxe 8 pin proto board. But it dosen’t fit but it is close to but so advice, it works well to the side or posibly at thebottom of the board.
