New Product Roundup – July 29th to August 4th

Hello everyone and thank you for joining us for this holiday weekend edition of our Saturday New Product Roundup. This week we have four new products to showcase and a very practical Product Of The Week. New to the shop, we have the SparkFun Third Hand Kit, a new Continuous Rotation Servo, a new version of our Arduino Experiment Kit, and a No-Clean Flux Pen from Chip Quick. Our product of the week is the Extra Large Solderless Breadboard. Let’s take a look at each!

SparkFun Third Hand Kit

Are you frustrated with the lack of dexterity from most third hands? The SparkFun Third Hand gives you the ability to hold a board between two alligator clips on two flexible arms with multiple points of articulation. The arm’s wide range of articulation gives you access to any angle of the board that you are currently working on, making soldering that much easier. The SparkFun Third Hand also won’t move around while you work thanks to a heavy aluminum base supporting the arms.

Continuous Rotation Servo

These specialized servos rotate forwards or backwards continuously instead of moving to a stationary position. A normal servo uses a specific timing signal to set the position, these continuous rotation servos use that same signal to vary their speed and direction instead. This servo is great for a simple moving robot when combined with a servo wheel.

Arduino Experiment Kit

Our popular electronics experiment kit is back and better than ever! This new version of our Experiment Kit has 475 common components, breadboarding materials, sensors, integrated circuits, and motors to experiment with. This kit is designed to be paired with an Arduino (or compatible) microcontroller and will allow the user to start interacting with the physical world.

Chip Quik No-Clean Flux Pen – 10mL

Do you need help soldering a difficult project, reworking a botched pin or just making your life easier? This 10mL no-clean flux pen from Chip Quik® is great for all of your solder, desolder, rework and reflow purposes! For those of you unfamiliar, flux is a handy substance that prevents beading of the solder and helps the solder flow cleanly onto the parts you are soldering. This is a must-have tool for any hobbyist’s workbench.

Upcoming Workshops

With the nice weather out there, our scheduled workshops will be taking a break over the summer! Do you have a group or want to schedule a private session? These are still available for booking, please contact us for more information!
