 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I was recently working on a project where mounting an Arduino and breadboard to a piece of wood helped me to keep my project together. This inspired me to release an Arduino mounting plate that could hold the Uno, Mega, and Due. As far as I could see in my research the only products out there only worked with the Uno.
The Universal Arduino and Breadboard Holder is a laser cut and etched acrylic platform that keeps Arduino projects sane!

I would love to have feedback from the community on this product. Is the price reasonable? Are there features that you would like to see? If more than five people give unique suggestions I will send a free mounting plate to one of you!

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

Yes, unfortunately shipping from US to NL makes it more expensive.

- some room for a battery pack (down/under/bottom)
- hole(s) to pass wires to under it (I imagine this plate being on the top of a box)
- if it was a bit wider you could add an array of screw terminals to extend it => think like https://www.sparkfun.com/products/retired/9282 -
- some room to place a sticker with project name or in a school the name of the student

Why limit it to such a little breadboard area?

- The price is right.
- A clear transparent cover to place on top would be a good additional option and presumably would increase revenue for you smiley. Maybe you could put the stickers/logos there, as already suggested.
- An option for plastic spacers/screw/nut, to allow filing down the plastic nut to fit into Arduino holes. (I noted from your photos that you hit this problem with metal ones)
- A final note is that I tried to do a checkout on Amazon.com & it said it wouldn't ship to Ireland, Germany or UK (3 different attempts with 3 different addresses I have stored). Don't worry too much as I was only trying to see what the shipping cost to Ireland is.

Best of luck with this, as there seems to be a lack of good value enclosures / bases for Arduino compared to Raspberry Pi.
