PadBoard - Size 1, Double Sided, Plated Holes
Prototyping circuit board that has a general purpose pad-per-hole pattern making it great for general purpose analog and digital use. It is a double-sided board with plated holes, which allows components to be easily soldered to either side of the board. A square pad is provided every 5th hole, which makes it easy to align components on the top and bottom of the board. An anti-tarnish coating protects the copper for a long shelf-life and provides easy soldering.
For fastening your project to a surface see our adhesive standoffs (S-H190-X)
Features:
• Pad-per-hole prototyping board with plated-thru holes. A square pad every 5th hole makes it easy to align components on top and bottom.
• Double-sided high-quality FR4 glass-epoxy circuit board with plated holes. Components can be soldered to either side.
• 1oz/ft2 copper with an anti-tarnish coating for easy soldering.
• 31 x 19 holes, 0.037" holes are drilled on 0.1" (2.54mm) centers. Four 0.125” mounting holes.
• Size 1 = 1.97 x 3.15in (50 x 80mm), 1/16" thick (1.6mm)

Package Quantitys Available:
Low-profile adhesive standoffs with a 0.180" standoff height that securely attaches your PCB to a flat surface. The post inserts into a 0.125” mounting hole and includes a locking tab that secures the PCB when inserted. It can be used with 1/16” or 1/32” thick PCBs. The 0.6 x 0.6” square base is offset to allow the base to be underneath the board when the mounting hole is close to the PCB edge and the offset base provides a large sticking surface while permitting the PCB to be mounted in tight spaces or close to walls. This can be useful when working with small enclosures. High-quality 3M™ brand double-sided tape secures the standoff to a flat surface. These standoffs are available in packs of 8, 24, or 100 pieces Features:
• Low profile 0.180" standoff height.
• Offset base allows use when holes are close to the PCB edge.

Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Insta-Cure Super Thin
Bob Smith Industries™ Insta-Cure™ Super Thin Cyanoacrylate. A must have for luthiers! Insta-Cure™ has a water-thin viscosity that wicks deep into joints by capillary action and cures in a matter of a few seconds (1-3 sec.). Surfaces to be bonded must be tight fitting (no visible gaps) and should be held together or clamped while you apply the CA around the edges of the seam. For glue applications with small gaps or looser fitting joints the higher viscosity Insta-Cure+™ is recommended.
• Water-thin consistency
• 1-3 second cure time
• For tight fitting applications
• Available in 1oz. and 2oz. sizes

WARNING: These products are eye and respiratory irritants. Product can bond skin instantly. Keep away from children!

Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Insta-Cure + Gap Filling
Bob Smith Industries™ Insta-Cure+™ Medium Gap Filling Cyanoacrylate. A must have for luthiers! Insta-Cure+™ is a higher viscosity CA for loose fitting joints in which the adhesive must bridge gaps or the parts to be glued don’t fit perfectly. Medium viscosity super glue is the most common glue used in many luthiery applications due to it’s cure time and viscosity. Recommended for binding repair and small poly finish touch ups. Normally, the thicker CA is applied to one surface and then the parts are held tightly together for about 5 to 15 seconds. For large surface areas, including those with close fitting joints such as laminations, INSTA-CURE+ ™ should also be used. To prevent premature curing, don’t spread the glue into a thin film. Lay down a serpentine bead with about 1" separations on one surface, then assemble the parts, letting the pressure spread the CA out. To speed up curing time use the Insta-Set accelerator!

Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Maxi-Cure Extra Thick Cyanoacrylate
Bob Smith Industries ™ Maxi Cure ™ Extra Thick Gap Filling Cyanoacrylate. A must have for luthiers! Maxi Cure ™ is the highest viscosity CA we have available and is great for extreme gap filling and finish fills. It can be carved with a knife or razor blade and sanded and feathered to form a finish which makes it great for chip repairs. The extra thick viscosity of Maxi Cure ™ also allows longer repositioning time than other glues (10-25 sec.) Apply Maxi Cure ™ in a coil pattern to one of the parts to be glued, spread glue evenly, then assemble parts. Hold or clamp firmly for 30-60 seconds. To speed up curing time use the Insta-Set accelerator! (S-F506)
• Extra thick, gap filling consistency
• 10-25 second cure time
• For looser fitting applications where a low viscosity glue is required
• Available in 1oz. and 2oz. sizes

Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Insta-Set Foam, Pump Spray
Bob Smith Industries INSTA-SET™ CA (super glue) Accelerator. INSTA-SET™ is a catalyst which acts as an accelerator that allows CAs to quickly cure in thick layers by enhancing the alkaline conditions during polymerization. INSTA-SET™ in a spray bottle is normally used to cure the CA that flows from joints when parts are pressed together. Applying an additional bead of thick CA along a seam and then curing it with INSTA-SET™ significantly enhances a joint’s strength. For difficult to bond materials, INSTA-SET™ can be applied to one surface and CA to the opposite surface. When brought together, they will bond instantly. INSTA-SET™ is formulated with a strawberry scent and activates CA in 6 to 8 seconds without any degrading of the CAs strength, which can occur with many other accelerators. It is compatible with all surfaces, even clear plastic and white foam.
• Convenient pump spray (2oz.
