Adafruit's super-talented Collin Cunningham shared a great how-to for making custom pins using copper PCBs as the base material—double-sided, copper-clad FR-4 boards, to be exact. Collin used not just any mill, but our reliable little PCB mill to make the project. We got a sneak peek at these neat pins in our recent roundup of community builds.
Adafruit’s Collin Cunningham is like the teacher you always wish you had in school. In his top-notch video series, Collin’s Lab, he makes topics like RFID, MIDI, and solar accessible to anyone with interest. We were thrilled that in his latest video, Collin walks us through using an Othemill to mill the PCB for our simple (but awesome!) capacitive synthesizer project. He jams out on the final product, proclaiming that it’s “pleasingly glitchable, capacitively touchable.” Collin approves.
