Check Your Kit

I hand assembled, soldered, and packaged roughly 800 kits. I might have made an error. If your kit didn’t come with everything, please post in the support channel in Discord. You have two weeks from the date of delivery of your kit to verify everything that was received is correct.

Base kit contents

Get Your Tools!

As mentioned in the Kickstarter, you’ll need your own tools if your kit wasn’t assembled. You’ll need:

  • Soldering Iron
  • Soldering Iron Stand
  • Solder
  • Solder Sucker
  • Flush Wire Cutters
  • Safety Glasses

Adafruit offers these tools on their website and I made a list you can checkout here. Unfortunately, it looks like a lot of things these days are out of stock. If you need help finding tools, please ask in Discord.
