I'd find a suggest in a forum "Use IDE connectors to make a breadboard" than I did it!
Making the breadboard wasn't very difficult, just a bit boring when i connected the wires.

Step 1: Materials Needed

You'll need:
- 8 IDE connectors
- some insulated wire (I used the cable attached to the connectors)
- glue
- solder tin
<p>Thanks!! I made one</p>
<p>Saved money making these and not buying a breadboard.</p>
<p>Now have about 20 of the soldered ribbon connector bits thanks to this instructable perfect for making XL breadboard/s.</p>
<p>can it be done with a 24 pin serial cable port?</p>
<p>I don't think, the ide connectors have the right spacing for insert ICs</p>
You inspired me so I thought I'd share. It's an AC to DC converter.
<p>I've always seen DIY with a lot of stuff, but this... seriously dude, that was genial. Thanks for sharing.</p>
Thank you, but is not a my idea, I found a message on a forum like this &quot;why not use IDE connector to do a breadboard?&quot; and I tried to create a board like commercial breadboard.
Great instructable, I can't believe I never thought of that!
