Great new build from Gene Denney up on Thingiverse.

We have plans to use several hundred Feather boards a work, currently we have around 100. Since I have to solder the stacking and female headers, which don’t work well with a breadboard for soldering, I designed this jig to hold them steady and straight while i solder. Thought it might be nice for the community. Thanks.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Did you consider using press-fit connectors instead? If you have a mechanical press and a jig to support the work-piece it can be much faster. Not sure if a 3-d printed piece would work for the jig, I suspect it depends on the number of pins in the connector.
