For peo­ple who are keen on solder­ing things up and mak­ing a close-to­com­mer­cial-grade fin­ished prod­uct, Barry Kent and An­drew co-in­vented the ‘Kiwi Patch’ — a sol­der­able, rapid­pro­to­type mir­ror of the sold­er­less bread­board.

No spe­cial skills in cir­cuit-board de­sign are needed, as the com­plete bread­board cir­cuit ma­trix can be moved hole for hole onto the iden­ti­cal Kiwi Patch printed cir­cuit board (PCB) bread­board replica, then turned over and sol­dered up. Barry is a reg­u­lar writer for The Shed and has done a se­ries on elec­tron­ics.
