Would somebody make this transfer to a breadboard?

    Well, we could do it FOR you, but then YOU would not learn anything!

    The whole point of being on this site is to learn stuff about electronics. Don't you want to learn how to do it?

    Start out by taking the stripboard layout:

    Edit it using something like MSPaint, and draw colored lines connecting the points that would have been connected by the stripboard. Don't put in all of the strips; that will just make it more confusing.

    Then you can make a breadboard layout pretty easily using PEBBLE; it's an online graphical breadboard layout editor:
    http://gadgetgangster.com/pebble/pebble.html
    Select a breadboard style that is close to one that you have.

    When you've done a layout, click the Save/Load button, copy everything in the white box, and paste it to a reply on the board. That way we can see what you have done.

    C´mon, one chip and 9 other components isn´t that hard to do on a breadboard. If you don´t know how are the pins connected, look here. On the stripboard, the holes are connected in rows.

    Hello Catapult. Are you still waiting for your parents to decide when you can be allowed to learn to use a soldering iron? You must respect your parents' wishes, and so must we.

    Until the time comes when you can build things for real, it will help you to practice layout skills, using solder-less breadboard, PEBBLE, graphics programs or otherwise. When I was your age I used a pencil and graph paper, but probably you wouldn't want to do that.

    When using stripboard, two related things are very important. One is not to forget to cut the strips where it is necessary, to avoid connecting things together by mistake. The other thing is not to cut the strips in the wrong places.

    Does that sound too obvious? Wait until you have done it a few times.

    Try asking some questions. If you ask questions, you will have to refine what is your problem to be able to ask it, and most likely you will know the answer by yourself before asking someone else.

    As for the breadboard, just place the 555 in the middle, over the middle line without pins. Then take some other part at random, connect one end to the circuit and the other end somewhere else. Use the + and - lines to provide power to the circuit.

    Did you read the wikipedia article? It clearly shows how the breadboard works.

    I don't know the structure of strip board and bread board, both of these. Please help me.

    Strip-board uses strips of thin copper laminate, supported by an insulatiing board. Typically this is Synthetic Resin Bonded Paper (SRBP), but less commonly Epoxy Fibreglass is used. The latter is more robust, but also considerably more expensive, and much harder to drill or cut to size.

    Typically the strips are laid out on a 0.1 inch spacing along the length of the board, and holes are drilled at even spacings along the centre lines of the strips, forming a grid pattern. The hole spacing is also most commonly 0.1", and hole diameters of about 1mm are usual.

    One well known brand of this kind of material is Veroboard. Many others exist. http://www.veroboard.com/

    I think you got it wrong, pins A, B, C, D and E are connected together, the same as F,G,H,I,J.
    Just to name few:
    link B10-C10 is useless as it connects already connected pins
    link B12-C12 too
    cap at B11 has shorted legs
    G3 the same
    battery is shorted
    ...

    Catapult,
    You should click on Pebble's Save/Load button, copy all of the text from the white box, and paste it into a reply here so that we can help you with the layout.

    If you close the Pebble page without doing that, you will lose your work in progress.

    Just copy this design to your bread-board. The red boxes can be seen as stripeboard copper tracks. Or stripes on your bread-board. I do not know how wide your bread-board is. But you may move componts closer to each other as long you move along the the same stripes

    Hello,

    @t06afre,
    When I look at your drawing, the black line from the battery is ONLY connected to the 220 μF capacitor.
    I think It should be connected to the IC somewhere.

    :rolleyes: Not the first time I have done an unwabted cut in stripe board.
    I try again. In a Fixed version. At least my error did no introduce any short
