I need to come up with some fixture which will allow a tester to remove an Arduino-like shield from the Arduino-like base without bending the pins. Now, you may be thinking this is piece of cake if you do it slowly, but my board (the HYDRA-X20) has many more pins than the Arduino Uno-like counterpart, and as of today I have not been able to remove my Head Boards without bending pins.
I am thinking there must be a mechanism where I can have one lever, but it somehow actuates two tongues which come up at the same time, applying equal force on the top board’s sides so that all the pins are released at the same time. This way, pins shouldn’t bend.
Mechanics have always been my weak side so I can’t envision this. I know this has to be kindergarten material for mechanic savvy folks. What can you recommend? Thanks!
BTW, I can design the final product. What I need at the moment is some kind of pointer as to where to look at pictures to get the idea how to draw it and then machine it.
