Sorry not sure exactly where this should go so I put it here... Wink

I learned electronics when I was a kid on this cool science fair electronics kit.

I was just thinking how cool it would be to make one of these with loads of common components on (Lm13600, Tl072, 2n3096, 1n914, loads of resistors and caps etc) and you could really quickly and easily prototype stuff.

If I could find out where to get those springs from I would certainly make one.

Just an idea chaps.

Interesting idea. You dont need to use the exact same springs Wink If you search for example Ebay for stainless stell tension spring yoy will find what you need-

Good luck with your plan Smile

That's very cool! My brother had something similar made by Knight. His was a PCB with components soldered with traces that went to rivets. In the center you would place a cardboard diagram showing what rivets to connect together. I just jumped in with what we called a "breadboard" in the old days - it was a piece of wood and could be literally an old abused otherwise trash-bound breadboard. Components were mounted with wood screws and washers.

Today, the typical DIY electronics lab will likely have solderless breadboards. These would perform the same function albeit without the convenient labeling. A word of caution - cheap ones work like cheap ones - crappy. I bought mine 40+ years ago and they still work. I know I'm not the only one who has built something on one and then actually recorded music with the circuit like that.

My kids all flock to raspberry pie and micro controllers. They don’t know what there missing
