Diy pcb

As you may or may not know, I love electronics. If you say electronics to me, you say PCB (Printed Circuit Board). I normally use the toner transfer method with photo paper. But then I saw this instructable, so I had to try it. In the Instructable, Dustin explaines how he uses parchment paper and a laminator to make DIY PCB’s. This looked too good to be true, but I have to agree it works. It works so much better than the usual photo paper way. And it’s a lot cheaper to use parchment paper than photo paper. The images in this post are pictures of a PCB I made using this method (though I left it a little bit too long in the etchant).

Of course you can do a lot more than just make PCB’s with the toner transfer method!
