Spring Break

Well, the family is heading over to Tennessee for Spring Break, so my posts may be delayed a bit. I plan to bring some stuff with me, so maybe I will have an opportunity to do a bit of tinkering.

Built the Breadboard Voltage Regulator

The Breadboard Voltage Regulator is assembled. Everything went fine up until the breadboard pins had to be mounted. The instructions mention that this is a bit more difficult, and it was–especially when one is highly cafinated. My solution was to use the alligator clip on my "third-hand" to hold each clip in place long enough to solder one pin; then the second pin was no problem.
