Thanks for the research…much appreciated.
I would also like to know if it works with a Yun. Or what I would need to adapt the weather shield to the Yun. Thanks in advance for any help or tips! (no guesses please, I am interested if someone has actually done it, I know you guys can make anything work :-) but I would like to have a little head start and know the Yun and weather shield really play well together :-).
PS: FYI I noticed today (Dec. 11) the GPS module and the rain/wind sensor package are on backorder :-(.

It was very interesting seeing the digital calipers taken apart. Thanks for sharing this.

I don’t see a good way to cut these without losing a pin since the amount of plastic in the wall between each pin is so thin.
If you accept losing a pin you can make the cut on the side closer to the pin you will lose. So you get to keep the entire wall, thin as it is – it works.
I used a sharp wood chisel and a hammer and got a good cut. A very light touch up with some sandpaper dressed the ends nicely.
I should have read these comments before I figured this out the hard way - I looked closely for the breakaway score, couldn’t find it, assumed it was some kind of fancy “invisible” breakaway and even though I sensed something was wrong I tried snapping one of these with a pair of needlenose – epic fail and the 7 pin header I was shooting for became a 6 pin header :-( Duhhohh. LOL
No public wish lists :(
