Providing a container for our projects is a continual headache for many makers - purpose-built project boxes are often expensive, while making one's own boxes from scratch is time-consuming and requires mechanical skill and equipment that not all of us have. Repurposing readily available containers as project boxes is a tradition as old as the hobby, and one of the most common boxes that lends itself to it is the humble mint tin, as used by Altoids and many other brands of mints.
These prototyping boards are just the right size to fit in such a mint tin. For holding it in place, I recommend using standoffs (3/8th-1/2 inch or 1cm long, 4-40 or 3mm thread) - you can either punch holes in the tin and screw the standoffs in from the other side, or glue them to the tin with epoxy.
This is by no means the first take on a prototyping board sized to fit an Altoids tin. For example, Adafruit sells a "solderable breadboard" in this form factor - complete with a $6 price tag - modeled very closely after the look and feel of solderless breadboard. I instead tried to optimize these boards for functionality and rapid prototyping - my board offers more groups of pins to accommodate more complex designs, and large exposed pads around the holes for ease of soldering. I offer both a simple through-hole prototyping board, and an SMD/Through-hole version with pads for a few SMD parts, including voltage regulators, and pads for a barrel jack on the side (you will have to cut a hole in the tin, of course).
After a few more through-hole boards sell, we'll be bringing in our new stock, w

International orders have been suffering long delays due to COVID-19 - please check your country at https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/ and make sure that I can ship to you, and that you are okay with any delays. There may be additional information available from your national postal service. Some customers have reported packages being delayed in transit by over a month. We cannot offer any sort of guarantees regarding international shipments at this time; we apologize for the inconvenience, and are looking into shipping internationally through UPS.
Please be sure that the address given to Tindie is accurate, and includes your street name and number - company name is only required if shipping to a commercial address. International orders require a valid phone number.
Domestic packages that go more than 1 week without a tracking update will be presumed lost in the mail and refunded or reshipped as buyer prefers. Any international packages can be delayed in customs without warning for 2 weeks or more. After 1 month without a tracking event (2 months to South and Central America - insane delays in those nations are commonplace), we will reship or refund a missing order (as you prefer). COVID-19 update: Some countries have stopped processing incoming international mail entirely -we will cancel orders to countries which we know are not processing international mail at all. This may also cause longer than usual shipping times - we are not responsible for such delays.
We do not open inquiries through the postal service - experience has shown this to be futile.
We ship all orders via USPS. UPS will be added as an option in the near future!
