Make: Electronics kits for pre-order in the Shed

Make: Electronics kits for pre-order in the Shed

Photos of the prototypes of the Make: Electronics Components Packs. Our art department is still working on lovely sticker art for the cases. Each will also come with a cool Maker Shed Electronics Cheat Sheet (with resistor code values, etc).


They’ve been months in the making, in fact, the robo-elves in the Shed are still putting their greasy little end-effectors on the finishing touches, but I wanted to show ’em off to you anyway. It’s the Make: Electronics Components Pack 1 and Components Pack 2, almost everything you need to build the projects from Chapter 1-4 of our tech bestseller Make: Electronics (e.g. sorry but we don’t provide the lemons for the lemon battery experiment — but don’t think we didn’t consider it!). In fact, we carefully considered everything that goes into these kits, and what they go into — nice, sturdy compartmented plastic storage cases.

Pack 1 has over 200 components, Pack 2, over 100. And because nearly all of the projects are breadboarded, when you’re done doing the experiments in the book, you’ll still have nearly 300 components and two cases to get you off and running in your newfound electronics hobby. We say nearly 300, because some of the parts are intentionally harmed in the conducting of these experiments. But not to worry, none of the expensive ones. What are a few fried resistors amongst friends?

Component Pack 1 sells for $99.95 and is available for pre-order now and will be available mid-March. You can sign up to be alerted to Component Pack 2’s availability and price. It too should be available mid-month.

    Come on… Hit us up with recycled at least!

  2. Peter Lane says:

    The Deluxe Toolkit you keep advertising and i keep trying to order has not been available for some time. How about some indication of when it might be available so I could decide to wait or to purchase tools, etc. separately.

  3. Scott says:

    I think I see some sort of parts list on paper through the plastic – thanks for that ahead of time. I wasn’t thrilled about having to Google strange numbers from the side of a component in the Advanced arduino kit. I’m still not sure what some of that stuff is.

    Wow. It was an exceedingly useful post.

  5. Swiss Chalet Coupons says:

    I’m glad that you shared this helpful info with us.
