    I want to have a permanent "casing" or mounting point for the Arduino uno but unlike the arduino Nano, i can't just solder on the pins to a PCB...

    i see a couple screw holes on the edges but what can it be screwed into?

    i suppose the wires can be plugged into the top of the uno like normal with the other components but my main issue is to find a way to mount the arduino itself

    thanks

    There are mounting holes on the pcb. Typically using either snap type plastic standoffs or a round plastic spacer/screw through it. If using metallic screws its a good idea to include a plastic insulating washer under the head so its not making contact with any of the traces/circuits.
