    Pros:
    The angled jaw and flat cutting side is made for cutting soldered through-hole components and does so quite well. the PVC handle grants decent grip and the spring is just right.

    Pros:
    When i first saw these things in DIY videos on the net, i thought they where redundant as i could just use solid core wires. well you can, but these combine the best of both words. the headers are solid for so the fit into breadboards and header sockets wh...

    Pros:
    it is your average arduino with extra pins for pwm/pwr/gnd for easy use of servos and the like. The same is true for the analog pins for hooking up sensors, potentiometers and such. It is very common, but with the new smd Arduinos I'd like to point out that...
