  • Thanks for your comment. There are ways, means, instruments and gizmos when working with LEDs, personal and practiced rhythms play a big part. What works is always an option.

    And I ask myself the same question. It's possible I have a desire to have my toys behave but I hope not.I found many interesting projects in this vein on Instructables including your "Small LED Tester" but decided to fabricate the Caddy for many opposing features. Sadly I expect "25%-30% of working time" would involve looking for a 'decorative box'. The best I can manage is to keep all my gizmos in one tray.Hopefully I didn't "re-gift" someone's work here but it does get difficult ensure everything's fresh. Recognizing someone's contribution seems not only "Emily Post's Etiquette" but makes each presentation more authentic.

  • Very elegant. Although I don't often use a tactile switch on a breadboard this makes the option clean and easy.My picture was chosen after reading the post by RyanC168 but I'm not trying to address his query.It did remind me that all breadboards are not exactly the same. There is perhaps an 'authentic' design but the alignment of the power/ground strips to the matrix is a common difference. A one-pin header would maybe make the insertion on the breadboard a bit easier but the daughter board/switch will still be slightly skewed.The Instructable makes a gizmo that is physically nice and stable, off the breadboard as well as on. It will likely be useful with any breadboard, including a 170 tie point 'mini'. If the skewed appearance of the switch is an aesthetic affront, the gizmo works just…

If the skewed appearance of the switch is an aesthetic affront, the gizmo works just as well bridging the columns.My kudos to the author.
