Step 2: Modify Male Header : Long Side

Picture of Modify Male Header : Long Side
Three of the headers we're going to leave alone, but one of the male headers will need to be modified to handle the offset female header on the Arduino. Let's get started:

Bend all the wires on the long side to about a 20 degree angle. I made a little template to get the angle right.

Thanks. I usually use the through headers by pushing the pins all the way flush with the plastic strap, put them through the stripboard and solder them at the copper side :-) That is not gonna be so eay with these :-) , yet , it is a good solution.

All that wasted energy by so many coz Arduino misplaced a header :-)

so i presume this pin makes an angle to the right and is not 'coming towards me'

correct. we're looking to make a change along the axis containing all the pins
