New Product Roundup – June 17th to June 23rd

Happy Saturday! We are back with another New Product Roundup! Three more additions to the shop this week – a weatherproof enclosure we use in our Raspberry Pi Weather Station, an excellent starter Solder Station for your workbench, and a new breadboard jumper wire assortment – two times the parts, and a lower price!

Before we have a closer look at each of these new products, a quick note: We will not have a New Product Roundup next Saturday, as it is the Canada Day long weekend. Our showroom will be closed from Wednesday June 27th @ 5PM to Thursday July 5th at 10AM for an extended weekend. Online customers do not need to worry, during this closure orders will continue to process and ship. Have a question? Please feel free to contact us.

Alright – lets have a look at these great new products!

Our showroom will be closed between June 28th and July 4th, but online orders will continue to ship.

Alright, with that message out of the way – let’s go have a closer look at each of this week’s new products!
