Check out this great prototyping technique! Thanks dwrenne!

To build any electronics handicrafts, there are some wiring materials. I think most people are wiring circuit board with PTFE (Teflon) insurated wire. But the PTFE wire is not suitable for wiring material with solder due to following reasons.

  • Wires on the circuit board gets like a dish of pasta when wired many number of wires because its insulator is tick.
  • And changing a part of the circuit will be difficult.
  • Working efficiency is not good, each wire must be stripped to be solderd.

So I recommend to use UEW for protoboard. The UEW is polyurethane coated copper wire which is used to inductors and small transformers. This wiring method is minor way, yet. However, it has cleard that problems, so that it is better way for wiring on the protoboard.
To wire with UEW, a wiring tool called “wiring pen” is used. The wiring pen is often sold with PCB kits, however, they are not useful because its tip is dull. When you did not satisfy bought wiring pen, it will be better to build it yourself. I built the wiring pen from a drawing pen.
