Making the breadboard wasn't very difficult, just a bit boring when i connected the wires.
Step 1: Materials needed
- 8 IDE connectors
- some insulated wire (I used the cable attached to the connectors)
- solder tin
Step 2: Prepare the connectors
With a cutter cut away the prominence (be careful doing this) and reduce the thickness of external sides by an half using sandpaper, this step is important otherwise can be difficult insert an IC to the finished breadboard.
Step 3: Glue and wire
You don't need to strip the wires, the connectors will cut the insulation.
Be careful to not ply pins.
To wire the "power lines" use a stripped wire and sold it to the pins.
Step 4: Finish it
The holes on blue connectors marked with a black point are not connected because I broke the pins.
