Al dente.

Have you ever tasted ROHS pasta?

059a - Al Dente 001

All hail the “pasta spacer”!

I was told by one of our most experienced girls that this is a technique widely used around to keep good board clearance. It’s so AWE-SOME!

I mean, pasta is a lot cheaper than plastic spacers, and also, once you have soldered the component, it is easily broken with pliers, leaving a nice and repeatable clearance.
