Self-Made Prototype BoardWe have already discussed once, how to make a prototype board, if you don't have one, but if you do have textolite. Today I will teach you another way, which I myself used when I was little. This method will help you make a good and convenient prototype board with the help of a certain number of tools, but without textolite. In order to do that we will need the following: a sheet of plyboard, cardboard or pressboard, small pieces of steel or brass, brass wire, or, if that is not available, steel wire with copper coating - it's very good that many clips today are made of steel with copper coating. As for the tools, we will need an awl, a screwdriver, straight and bent pliers, wire cutters and scissors. And, just like always, it would be good if you have a soldering iron and fluxes. So, the first thing we need to do is to make lamels. Lamels are the contact groups of your prototype board. They are, in fact, the bands that need to be cut out from your work material. After that, the plate that you have cut out needs to be bent and straightened. You need to make ten such lamels. Then you need to make buses. This is most conveniently done with the help of brass wire, or, if you don't have that, just take a steel wire with copper coating or a regular hookup wire. When all of the parts are ready, you need to make holes in your base - four round holes for the buses and 10 straight ones for the lamels.And your prototype is almost ready. All you need to do now is just tin it. This board is good for assembling pilot designs. But if you are looking for a permanent solution, it would be best to just go with a real printed circuit board.
