DrawBot – The Assembly, Part I

I assembled most of the Adafruit Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield for Arduino kit – v1.0 last night.  Since I don’t have an Arduino yet,1 I didn’t want to solder in the connector pins.  Other than those four connectors, it is all soldered up.

FYI, don’t try to put the L293D into the 16-pin sockets before you solder the socket into place.  I tried to do that and it was a mistake.  I bent some of the leads to the socket and stabbed myself in the finger with the L293D chip.
