There's a mega in there somewhere?

I've shipped 20 kits now I think. More boards are on order, due in ~12/19. 3 of those are sold already!  I'm getting pretty good at counting out & bagging up connectors :)

I bought a bigger qty this time and have lowered the price some:
$40/US address, $52/international address for a kit with board and all connecters. $35 each additional kit.
All are shipping USPS small flat rate box - I can fit at least 5 kits in a box for the same shipping cost. Maybe more, but that's been the biggest request so far.

Received my Mega Screw Shield today and it looks solid. A little bigger than I was expecting, but it's no surprise given all the pins. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone needing easy connectivity with their Mega.

I was thinking recently that the 2nd/outer row of screw terminals could be mounted on the bottom of the board to make it easier to access the 1st inner row.
I have more boards on hand right now, will have connectors early next week to ship out more sets.

These boards will work with Due boards also.

The kits went together well and my rats nest has disappeared!   

The thought of mounting a row of connectors beneath is very clever - Next time!

Cheers!

Spread the word - I have more boards & connectors ready to go.

You can solder your own screw shield, it won't be difficult.

Hi, I would love to take one fully assembled mega screw shield. How do I proceed?

Hey Crossroads - love these shields - but i have a Freetronics Ethermega - built in Wiz5100 which sticks up at the front of the board and fouls most boards - i guess i could just cut a notch out of the front section of your board - you do not have any traces etc running through the front of the board ?

Not sure where you want to cutout - most of the board is pretty free.

Looks like maybe nothing as the screw shield does not cover the whole mega, stopping short of the USB-B on the original.

OK good one then - if it does not come far enough forward to hit the ethernet jack that is great - each of the other mega shields i have tried for various things has fouled on the board.

This board makes a Mega Truly useful... Best $40.00 I ever spent on a Mega shield..  Of Any type.
