Yesterday I began putting together my Adafruit Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield for Arduino kit - v1.0 and . . . . . . I did not thoroughly review the parts before I began soldering!
I'll get another one, not a big deal, but I hope everyone else - beginning with me - will remember to take just a few more seconds to make sure this stuff is going together the right way. My boo boo delayed this project another week
At least nothing blew up or caught on fire . . . . . .
Have fun - slow down, read the instructions - patience isn't something restricted only to physician's employment,
