Nut and bolt example
This is a minimal hardware project (equivalent to a "Hello World" program) intended to demonstrate how to use Github and Bountysource to track and fund hardware projects. Github and Bountysource are established websites that are widely used for open source software projects. The purpose of this page is to give an example of how Bountysource can be used to fund an open source hardware project.
This page is simply the "documented solution" to a minimal hardware project described on Github. Please see the related forum threads and wiki pages linked below for additional information on how the process works.
Obtain a nut and bolt. In this case, the thread size is 1/2 inch diameter with 13 threads per inch (1/2-13). Assemble the nut onto the bolt with a combined twisting and sliding motion. Now you are done.
