    Arduino Mega R3, Ethernet 2 Shield, and Screw Terminal Shield Stacking Question

    This isn't directly related to the plugin, but how are people using an Arduino Mega R3 with an Ehternet 2 Shield and a Screw Terminal Shield? I purchased a screw terminal shield, but it has to go over the Ethernet shield, which doesn't extend the length of the Mega board, so I have to use stacker pins...not a very eloquent solution.

    I had to do the same, using stacker pins as raisers, with another screw-terminal.
    The Arduino is upside-down on top of the pile.

      How many screw terminals do you need in your project?

          Did you get that from Crossroads? I got a quote from them and that screw terminal assembled is $63. Not to bad if it works and I guess they are good Phoenix contact quality terminals. What do you think of it now that you used it?

          Also, why would you have to use the stacker pins? The Ethernet shield should sit on top of the other side (of the screw terminal board) "inside" the screw terminals correct?
