This is an excellent idea - I just ordered 3 of each. I haven't picked up a soldering iron in probably 30 or so years. The last time I did it, I ended up using half a spool of solder and a really big solder blob on the bench.

This is genius. Won my Mintypi so Wermy did the actual soldering, but was thinking of making something like the GBA pi thing that Ryzee made. Gonna need to brush up on the necessary technique.

Probably a dumb question, but i'm going to ask it. I've ordered 3 of these, and finished two... Every pin goes great, and shows continuity (near zero resistance on my cheap meter lowest setting 200ohm), except for some reason the ground pins show more resistance... I've gotten the same on two boards.. just confirming, this means i don't have the ground pins soldered correctly? It shows like 1500 on the 2000ohm setting.

You can't get a real meter with a continuity setting like a cheap $7 Harbor Freight meter?

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.


Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!

Don't think I've see those stores in Canada. This meter is the only one they carried at my local hardware store. My brother in law is going to give me a Fluke-117A next time I go see him. He tells me it's more of an electrician meter than anything, but it should beep.

I wonder if there is a threshold for resistance they beep at. I'll try googling that I guess.
