    Default PCB prototyping service.

    If you don't want to dabble with chemicals, and doing target practice with a drill, but still want a PCB made, this might be the solution.
    Precision milled and drilled from almost every source, like Eagle, graphics file, or even an old fashioned layout on a piece of paper.

    So you're offering this service right?

    What about the pricing? I mean as per rules you should state a price but can this kind of job be priced as it must vary depending from the job. Nevertheless some guideline prices might be a good idea.

    You said it yourself already, there are too many variables, but let's say from € 10,- onwards?

    Sounds interesting. I may have some work for you in the future as I have a couple of small projects in mind.

    Hi Beavis,
    interesting offer. What resolution can your CNC manage?

    Hi Guys, thanks for the replies.
    I can go down to 0,1 mm.
    The SMD chip in the pic is an SOIC, pin width is 0,41 mm, distance between 2 pins is 1,27.

    Beavis (awesome name i hate you) great news make a video making a PCB this way PLEAAAASE You will help other DIY lovers if you do.The people that will buy they will buy them anyhow

    Spread the knowledge I am interested in your technique if you believe it or not i was wondering this week if its possible to do something like that for some small DIY projects without using all this chemicals as you pointed out and spending more that you should on a technique that is obsolete in our days.

    Keep it up best of luck

    CNCing a PCB isn't exactly what I'd obsolete. It's still used quite a bit for prototyping, especially for RF and analogue circuitry. It requires a CNC machine, so you need space and it's also relatively noisy.

    Sorry for the board name, but we all need our heroes now don't we?

    Will do some footage one of these days, have a few boards to make.

    As for the noise, that's completely depending on the spindle, brushed motors are known about the horrible noise they make.

    I made my own, albeit with a brushed motor, and that one is not so noisy...

    Cool! Arduino and some stepper motors recycled from floppy drives or cd-rom drives?
    Are two-sided boards with vias possible?
