GrblShield Ghetto Connectors
Okay, so basically without any connectors I started to test the shield by
soldering my motor cables straight onto the pins. I want obviously to be
able to unplug my motors so I had to find another way to plug them, I tried
to find the female connectors but it turned out except online I couldn't find
any shop having them, and paying many times the price of the connectors for
shipping on an online store wasn't really tempting me.
Turns out after trying many things, the metal connectors inside the main power
plug from a regular ATX power supply fit perfectly onto the shield's pins.
Since I'm using this supply to power the shield I don't need the connector anyway
so I took it apart and salvaged the little metal connectors, careful they are
easily bent/cut when trying to break the plastic apart.

All the motors with the pins soldered
Motors connected, Grblshield is running happily and I can unplug very easily my
motors when needed, Without paying anything or waiting some more days just for
a few parts.
