PART FINDER FRIDAY – 0.1″ screw terminal blocks! Most terminal blocks are big and chunky, for large gauge wires, and they require 3.5mm or 0.2″ spacing. But what to do if you want to upgrade a project without relaying it out? We splurge and get these (pricey but well made) Phoenix terminals. They fit nicely in 0.1″ header holes and snap together to any length. For example, here is a boarduino we modified with a few of these strips.

Let the part finder help you find love, happiness and that elusive part!

    why not start to carry these? Seem perfect for all sorts of things.

  2. hi dave, in general we try not to carry just-parts, there are tons of companies that do, and we link to best ones.

  3. Please create a unique tag for the Part Finder Friday posts, so that I can look through all of them at a glance. EE and Announce — the tags used for this particular Part Finder Friday — have too many other things to be useful in finding the Part Finder Friday posts.

  4. They often come in more colors then just ugly-green. I’ve bought black ones before and they look a bit sexier then the green. You know, if you’re into that sort of thing.

  5. We design these in 2008 😉 http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,49908.msg364240.html#msg364240
