Bandsaw a Large Breadboard into a “DIY Mini Breadboard”

Honestly I can’t say I ever considered this before – at least not from a full-size breadboard. I typically save my breadboards that have ‘exploded’ or burnt areas on them for demo but this is equally a good re-use of a defective breadboard if you don’t do a lot of workshops or demos.

You can make your own mini-breadboards by cutting up a larger one.

Full Flickr set is here, and read more here.

FWIW we sell a full suite of breadboards in various sizes including a 2×8 point ‘board I’d be a little nervous about bandsawing down to size!


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. While a bandsaw will be a lot faster, a hacksaw should work just as well. A simple blade-holder version is a good thing to have in your maker toolbox for many reasons. The idea of getting more life out of a breadboard with some bad connectors by chopping it up is great though.
