I usually make a custom PCB for my electronic projects. Throughout development the PCB, however, changes several times. Making a custom PCB at each stage is not practical for several reasons including price, long waiting times between versions and being very wasteful. For all these reasons I use a test board/breadboard/prototype board that can be changed easily and instantly before development reaches a final stage.

For further information on how I made this, including all details you need to build your own, please see my blog entry @ http://diy.viktak.com/2011/07/using-smt-chips-on-tth-breadboard.html

Brilliant!

I am so stupid i did not figure it myself! I really do make small PCB every time using toner transfer method just to test a small circuit.

Also, no need to deep the pins into the glue. You can keep them relatively clean, so you can reuse the chip the way you like later.
