This board is great for anyone who's a fan of Halloween, Pirates, or just likes spooky, glowing coffins!

This is the third board Robyn has designed. She wanted to add some different elements from the HRC and ASC boards. Backlighting is cool and she wanted to see if she could achieve a glowing effect but still use beginner friendly through hole components. The artwork for the skull is by Gabriel VanHelsing under a Creative Commons CC-BY-SA-3.0 license and can be found here.

    Step 1: Resistors

    I trying to go in order of height when soldering components. I start with resistors because they are closest to the board.

    If you're having trouble keeping the board from moving when soldering you can use a piece of tape to hold the board down. Just be sure not to have the tape too close to where you are soldering your joint!

    Step 2: LEDs

    If you're confused about which side is positive or negative, we added a reference in silk screen at the bottom of the board!

    Step 3: Switch

    The switch is easy to bridge so be sure to not use too much solder!

    *Note: The switch is made of metal so it gets hot when soldering. Be careful touching it during and directly after soldering!
