Announcing Our New mklec mk-vb26 Veroboards

We’re excited to announce a new product we now carry: the mklec mk-vb26 veroboard.  We had these manufactured based on our specs and they look awesome.  Since the price of veroboards tend to be high and there are very limited sizes to choose from as far as the smaller boards are concerned, we decided to have some custom made to suit many of our veroboard layouts.  Not only that, we’re able to offer them at a great price that is sure to please.
