    *Correct* Hole Spacing

    Comments about RadioShack Dual General-Purpose IC PC Board:

    I measured the spacing of the holes for this product with a digital caliper, and I read .3" from center to center - the same used in industry-standard DIP package ICs. All chips come with their leads slightly splayed out, so you need to gently bend them in a little to place them on the board or use an insertion tool - exactly as you would with any custom-designed PCB. The only way anyone could measure .26 between holes (as one reviewer claims) is if they measure to the inside edge of each hole, which is not the industry standard. If you find yourself complaining about features this board doesn't include, you just need to move up to a larger board.
    I use these boards all the time and will continue to do so, buying as many as I can get my hands on from local stores.

          This product is actually being used for a production run of a recent circuit development by our compamny. It was versatile enough for prototyping and production.

          Comments about RadioShack Dual General-Purpose IC PC Board:

          I have used these boards and others, similar in design, to build sections of receivers, transmitters etc. I find nothing wrong with the pin spacings but the boards would be greatly enhanced if the copper pattern was overprinted on the non copper side. Also it would be an improvement if an earth strip, say 5mm wide, could be added to each side of the board, thus keeping the whole circuit on the one board.

            Home electronic builder for decades but this is
            first time seeing your PCBs with a critical space error. Will not under any condition take any I/C or I/C sockets. Tracks need to be moved out by about 1mm. Bought in N.J. but now in Philippines so
            will forget project.

                  Comments about RadioShack Dual General-Purpose IC PC Board:

                  This circuit has wrong dimensions. The hole spacing between the two rows should be 0.3". But the actual spacing is only 0.26". One has to really bend the IC pins to an awkward angle to insert them. I refused to bend the pins and threw the board away. I will not buy this board again without physically checking. This may be a defective batch from China.

                  I can't find ANYthing like this anywhere else. Low price.

                  Solder a 20-pin DIP socket on it and you can use it over and over for any 4-to-20-pin DIP package on many different projects. Use unused pins for tie bus, extra components, etc.

                  Use a knife edge to score the 'snap-apart' areas, or cut with a fine saw, or just use it for two DIP's for your project.

                  Clean the copper side with steel wool and/or cleanser to make it accept solder easily.

                  RS, please don't ever stop making these.

                    I wish Radio Shack would sell a small plastic enclosure into which one of these would fit. The smallest enclosure is too small, and the next size up is a waste of space.

                            WHAT A FIND. During my projects, I was wishing someone made such a board and Lo and behold, while rummaging through my parts cabinet, there I find 2 of them. I looked at several electronic distributors for this little fella with no success and there they are at several local Radio Shack stores. Sure makes things easier to have the IC on one board and the associated components on another.
