Step-by-step PCB making


MusicMiK shares his PCB creation process while working on a couple of phaser effects pedal boards. If you’re interested in making your own boards this will of course be of interest. Keep in mind, some of the techniques he demonstrates could be accomplished by relatively simpler means – such as using iron-on transfer or presensitized boards, instead of spray-on photo-resist. Either way it’s a nice and thorough little series of vids full of maker-zen. Be sure to check out step 3 for his testing and SMD soldering process.

    Is that a commercially available etching tank or a home made job?

    I love the light box too. It looks like an old flatbed scanner – with 650 UV LEDs – that’s some serious soldering.
