PCBs done quick.

***warning this video is not a complete guide and for demonstration only*** There's been a lot of hubbub on the internet about making PCBs using these new PCB printers. They sound all cool. They're only thousands of dollars, they take less than an hour, have okay precision and seem to produce tolerably durable boards. WHY? Making PCBs isn't rocket science. People've been doing it for decades at home. Heck, my first PCBs were made using some mid-90's radioshack kit. In fact, they can be made cheaper, more durably, and faster using traditional methods! Materials: (1) FR4 (or CEM) 0.060 1 Oz Copper Single Sided boards, available from ebay. (2) DuPont Riston. Available from tech-place or ebay. (3) UV Mercury Vapor Light, usually used in terrariums. (4) ~42% Ferric Chloride, available from ebay and other shops.

Review: Cheap CNC Mill

Even though I said I won't do reviews of cheap items again, this time is somewhat special as it falls right into my interest area. Watch as I put a cheap kit CNC mill to the test, and see if it's something worth spending money on. It came to my attention in the discussion below that the controller board in this mill is counterfeit. For that reason I cannot in good conscience recommend that you get the mill with that controller. However, it is a good platform which they copied, and if you're interested in either buying your own from Planet CNC who makes the originals, or even building your own, visit the links below: Plans for a self build of their first version controller: If you're interested at looking closer at the CNC mill, visit the Gearbest website here, and if you choose to get it, you can also for a limited time get 12% off the list price: coupom:GBTE enjoy12% off Summer 3D printer sale Gearbest Autumn Super Bumper Harvest Sale coupon for ALL 10% OFF: GB10% Electronic Tools & 3D Printers coupon for Tools 12% OFF : GBHarvestE These are not affiliate links, and I earn nothing if you choose to spend any money on Gearbest.

Making your own printed circuit board can be a truly satisfying process, tying together electronics and the handmade craft of etching. It's the most accurate way to build a circuit short of sending away to a PCB manufacturer and it's a lot more fun (+ cheaper too!).
