    I just put on order some boards full of prototype patterns. The board is
    of my own design from several years ago. It has patterns like SO-a
    zillion that you just snip off the amount needed. The snipped off bit is
    then super glued down on a sheet of copper clad and wired up.

    I only ordered this after looking to see what I could buy. There are very
    few available prototyping methods and they all look bad. What do you use?
     
  2. 3M used to sell some ready-made PCB pieces like that with adhesive tape on
    the back. It was good.

    I do not think it is really worth the effort to build a prototype by hand -
    some parts of it, yes - but mostly I just get the whole thing put on a PCB
    which I then attack with the oscilloscope, green wires and scalpel as usual
    ;-)

    Wainwright makes this sort of thing, with adhesive backing. They are a bit
    expensive.

    Right now, I'm designing and building a test box for a completed PCB. I
    mostly just need to hold a few resistors etc. The biggest prototype I've
    ever worked on, used up two desks and then ran into a computer to do the
    rest of the work.

    Do you have a link?

    Christianson Radio(sp) used to make some that were very good. Like all
    good products, they quit making them.

    They look like good adapters. The connector adapters is something I'm
    sure I will use.
