Electronic – How to make a wire link for veroboard quickly and accurately.


I recently put together a prototype on veroboard. It was necessary to make several links from BTC to do the vertical connection between tracks.

Project Board

Is there a quick way of making wire links accurately?

Best Answer

Cut a piece of Veroboard as shown in the photograph this is the more expensive fibreglass board for longevity. The cut at the bottom goes halfway through a row of holes.


Count up the number of holes you need from the bottom of the board and push the end of the wire through the hole.


Bend the wire around the bottom of the board through the half hole.


Cut off the end and you have a perfectly sized link.
