Title: Use of a Breadboard
Post by Tilade on 12/30/09 at 19:26:20
Hello, I have a very simple question.  I wanted to connect my Wiring board (Not mini version) to a breadboard.  I currently get the Jameco catalogue and am looking for a piece that will "convert" the hard pins of the board to the commonly seen "breadboard" kind that are on many arduino units.  I don't want to order the wrong piece (not cost, just shipping time) and am hoping the community can suggest either the correct piece or another method that doesn't involve soldering the board directly.

Thanks!!

I use the female .1" pins with heat shrink tubing around the pin part and solid wire.  Works great!

Jameco #741677.

Take a look at this tutorial:
We crimp our own connecters like this. Although I've got no experience with the mail thing, they should be perfect for the job

this is the kind of male thing shown in the picture:

And you don't need a very expensive crimping tool, this does the job more then perfectly, and this one is even a deluxe version

We, Team Vossius, think it is one of the best ways to do this :P
Good luck
