Has anyone ever run into this problem? You have a top level shield such as Sparkfun's MIDI Shield with the short headers, but you want to have access to the unused pins on the Arduino:


I now know that I should have put female headers on this, but I've had bad experiences de-soldering and re-soldering parts on PCBs. Things tend not to work afterwards...

I bought and  soldered together two sets of female headers at right angles  and clip the leads on one side:


Problem solved for $3.00 USD!

That is cleaver, thanks for sharing it. Now solve how you can stack two shield boards to an arduino where each must be the top shield, say like yours and another that was a nice LCD display.  smiley-wink

I agree on the female header. Make it something like this motor shield....



but that does look pretty cool.......
