Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 17th 2012! We are pleased to announce our annual Adafruit’s Father’s day sale, 10% off all tools and iCufflinks & ties (in stock) through Sunday 6/17/2012 (11:59pm ET). Give Dad the gift of electronics and pick up a soldering iron, accessories for building things or if you just want to get him a gift certificate, we have those as well. The 10% off applies to the tools section only (and iCufflinks and ties) and cannot be combined with other discounts. To get the discount use the code fathersday on check out in the discount code area on check out. Limit 1 use per customer. Here are some Adafruit goodies we think Dad will love!
iCufflinks – Sophisticated. Modern. Open Source. Gorgeously machined aluminum with a subtle pulsating LED. Perfect for Father’s day or for that geek who loves technology and needs to get dressed up for a special event. Welcome to the future!
Get Ladyada’s Electronics Toolkit for Dad – perfect for taking on electronics project challenges together!
Pocket Autoranging Digital Multimeter – fully featured meter in a compact package, great as a backup meter if Dad’s already got a full-sized one!
Panavise Jr. PV-201 – This awesome little circuit board vice makes it easy to work on small PCBs (like most Adafruit kits!). Once Dad has one, he won’t know how he made things without it.
USB Microscope – Give Dad the gift of SUPER VISION! As electronics get smaller and smaller, you’ll need a hand examining PCBs and this little USB microscope is the perfect tool. Its smaller and lighter than a large optical microscope but packs quite a bit of power in its little body.
Circuit board necktie – printed from a vintage circuit board silkscreen, this tie is black with silver ink.
1 GS/s Digital Storage Oscilloscope – The ultimate debugging tool for Dad’s electronics, this oscilloscope will turn Dad into a “Circuit Whisperer”.
DSO Nano v2 – Pocket-size color digital oscilloscope – This cute pocket oscilloscope is a perfect companion to Dad’s tool box – it is not as complicated as a benchtop scope so its easy to use.
Beagle USB 12 Protocol Analyzer + Sticker – USB complexity got Dad down? Does he need a hand with enumeration? Is Dad Reverse engineering a USB device? Dad will fall in love with the Beagle 12 USB Analyzer.
38 Piece Screwdriver Set – take apart almost anything!
Precision screwdriver set (6 pieces) – This set contains 6 screwdrivers, 3 Phillips (#1, #0 and #00) and 3 flat (2.4mm, 1.8mm and 1.4mm). These sizes will open up pretty much any consumer electronics you come across. We picked this set to carry because it is better quality than most low cost sets.
Sugru – multicolor pack or black and white pack – Soft-touch silicone rubber that molds and sets permanently. Sticks to aluminum, steel, ceramics, glass, wood and some fabrics + plastics! Sugru also has a cool poster called “Dad’s guide to fix (almost) anything.”
