When the crimping pliers first showed up in your store, I thought “hay great, I could use that, but I didn’t realize they were so expensive”. I’m sure many go through this same thought wave.
Then I got to thinking. Looking at my various electronics projects, and the number of connectors I use, and typically pay a pretty price for pre-assembled, these things are actually quite a bargain.
I don’t mind paying for great tools that make otherwise very hard tasks very simple. I’ve received the pliers, and am already putting them to use. It’s good tools like this that make my electronics dreams that much easier to achieve.
I am happy that you guys continue to look out for and stock all the ‘little things’ that make a maker’s life easier. This is what keeps me coming back to you again and again.
And I picked up a Netduino Plus while I was at it – William
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
