PCB a Week 8: NU-FitHole hole size helper


Mats continues his challenge of designing one PCB every week.  This tool helps to determine exact hole dimensions for screws and other parts.

This weeks PAW will be extremely simple – it’s not even a breakout board, but it might still come in handy for people making PCBs. The FitHole is a tool for testing what drill size that best fits a part that you’re making a library footprint for.

  1. This would be a great tool to have. I haven’t sent any boards off to Seeed yet as I have a few parts I’m worried about lead sizing. This would eliminate that concern.

  2. I have a large one of these for bolts, but a small one for electronics sized projects would be quite nice.

  3. I’d love to compare it against iTead’s sample board to see how accurate their samples are.

  4. Are these being produced? I can’t find it anywhere…. Can I purchase one like it?
