  • As someone mentioned in passing, this is commonly called a Molly-Guard.

  • Has anyone compared this to the USB soldering irons? For tip size, heat etc? I use a USB one for doing QFP-48 (surface mount) soldering with old-school lead solder and it works great, but this might be even better.

  • This is what I use them for. I make a board that pops into a DIP socket to upgrade a legacy part. This is the best solution I’ve found.

  • Why not stock the 64 pin version of this instead? Or at least the 40 to match the male counterpart?

  • What are the other diameters of the pins themselves?? Thanks.

  • I don’t know why people are whining about the price. These would be $14 a pop from the regular electronics distros.

  • I like this project aside from the part where you replace a top-line synth module with a bleep chip. What are you doing with the synth module? Are you interested in selling it?

  • Where are the other 27 dog pictures?????????

  • This is a good idea. Design by committee is tough, but filtered input from the masses could go a long way to improving several of the products. Personally I’m not so big on shift-register designs, preferring an I2C connection. Where I’ve gotten stung before from Sparkfun is carving up boards to get to pull-up/down configuration pins that were tied directly to ground or vcc.

  • Corner. Self painted into … check!
    Recommendation for this and similar boards: when given the option of allowing the user to configure the device via pin settings, please allow for it. By using a pullup, pulldown or jumper on ADDR you would have allowed us to easily change the I2C address without an x-acto knife. This board, not so flexible.

No public wish lists :(
