Soldering the Shield

I used blobs of blue-tac to hold the components with short legs in place while i soldered the first legs (choosing legs that were furthest from where the blue-tac was to avoid it heating up too much). Once the components where secured with solder, I removed the blue-tac and soldered the remaining legs.

So far, How much has this project cost you? I'm seriously considering building a monome using the Sparkfun boards myself and was curious of the overall price. I assume it will be cheaper than the 40h Kit. Thanks!

You're blog will be an invaluable resource when I do build my monome

So far it's cost about 280 EUR in parts.
