New: Forums and Comments

We now have forums covering Soldering, Metal Working, a general How-To section, and a place for Imponderable Questions that bother us to no end. Post your questions and we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction. Also, there are now comment sections on all of our guides. We greatly appreciate suggestions or corrections on the guides.

CuriousInventor launched in late 2006 (pre-arduino era!) as a place to enable hobbyists, students, and musicians to create their own technology. We sold open-source kits and tools, and offered numerous guides & videos on things like soldering, metal working, screws, electronics, and more. 

The store is now mostly empty, but we’ve kept the product pages and guides up since they have useful information. Many of our guides and videos still rank on the first page of google searches and have been seen millions of times.
