Introduction: Make a Breadboard at Home

A Breadboardis a very useful utility for any electronics enthusiasts, beginners, or professionals...Here you can test out your circuit to see if it works out as you expected or not.....without even falling in the hassles of soldering components into the veroboard......cz you solder the components and then you realise it doesnt work out as expected and you have to unsolder all the components and change the circuit, again solder the components to test it..........thats a big task......But hey, you have a solderless breadboard, where you just plug the components in, if any problem unplug the components...change the orientation and then again plug it in.....Its so simple for prototyping your circuit.........Yeah, I know some of you are thinking why bother making it wen you have it on the market....see, some of us cant just buy it for monetary problems, distance from shops too big, or they want to make things from their own hands.....there can be many reasons on why making breadboard on your own can be useful......Heck, you can change the orientation of breadboard according to your whims!

Step 2: Resizing the Plastic Bracket Into Required Length

Resizing the Plastic bracket into required length

Gently cut the plastic bracket into reqd length using blade cutter.....After cutting obtain the top and bottom parts.....

Step 3: Prying Up the Holes of Breadboard

Draw up the schematics of holes onto the plastic bracket.........Light up a candle.....Take a compass and heat it up and then insert it into the bracket to create a hole,......like wise pry up the rest of the holes.......

Step 4: Preparing for the Conduction

Take up the old notebook hardbound cover and cut out a piece identical to the plastic bracket....Keep it on the bracket and pry up some holes at the top and at the bottom....

dotted portion represent the holes in the cardboard and yellow portion is the rest of the cardboard....

Cut out thin cardboard slices from the old notebook cover and paste on the yellow portions .......PAste 2-3 layers of cardboard so that it gains a height from the doteed portions.......On the dotted portions paste the alumunium foil or alumunium sheet......It will be.the conduction channel of the breadboard......

Step 5: Finishing Touch....

Insert the cardboard into the plastic bracket.......Yippee the breadboard is made............
