Having used it for a week , I have some suggestions for improvement.
The addition of two more mounting holes would enable the PCB to be oriented the other way round, but at least 3 hex nuts for securing onto the base board.
Alternatively, use as is, with no new holes, using two stand offs for securing and two for support, but again, needing at least 3 hex nuts.
Orienting the PCB this way, meant using a breadboard with only a single power bus.

Nicely made and finished mounting board which prevents stuff sliding off your table!
I also like the hexagonal stand-offs which form a solid base for the Arduino but would have preferred 4 hex nuts along with the stand-offs, giving me the option of fitting as many as possible, whilst of course being careful not to put any strain on the board.

Exactly what I needed to stop me balancing the breadboard and arduino uno on the cat!
It was a squeeze to secure one of the plastic baseboard nuts on my R1 Arduino uno. But all safe and solid.

Whilst I already have a wooden and Plastic baseplate, this Acrylic version is by far the best looking. But a little expensive I thought, but that didn't stop me from get a second one.

This is my second one. Last was for a Uno this a Mega. Excellent product. So easy to work with on the bench.

Good value and works well to keep my Arduino UNO stable while experimenting. Space for a breadboard by the side is really useful too.
All 4 pillars line up well but only two have room for nuts (and only two are included) which is not a problem for me but may be for others.

I was going to make something like this until I spotted it on the Proto-Pic website. Not worth making when it's under £8 and your time poor like me. It's time better spent on the rest of the project!
So nice not to have my Arduino and associated project skating about the table.

Makes working easier and tidier

These are fantastic. Have now got an Uno, a Mega and a Due sitting on one of these on my desk and I don't keep tripping over stuff when I'm playing with whichever one makes sense for what I'm trying to do.
Such a simple idea, but it works. And it works very well.

Keeps system neat and tidy
This handy baseplate helps keep your prototyping projects neat and tidy. It has room for both a half sized breadboard and an Arduino (Uno, Mega 2560, Leonardo, ADK and Due, etc.). It comes with 4 silicon feet, 4 nylon spacers, 4 nylon cheese head screws, 2 nylon nuts and an Acrylic baseplate.
All prices are in GBP
