Thanks for all this work :)

Seems like a good time to learn to etch finally.

I'm looking forward to my first etching attempts. Always wanted to check out our polymer chemistry yellow rooms (UV-free) and use the UV chamber for curing the etching mask. Also, we've got tons of ferric chloride in the basement storage  ;D

I've use photosensitive boards many times and you don't really need a chamber, a fluorescent light in a dark room can give you very good results (I used to make pcbs in my kitchen..)

I'm well aware that you don't really need a UV chamber. It's more of a "Just because I can" thing :D

Hey where do you guys get your copper clad from? I've been trying a few different suppliers lately- I found a guy on Ebay with red board (which excited me because who doesn't want colored PCBs), however the stuff was barely thicker than a few pages of newspaper and the traces come off rather easily.I've had success with steve's fr4 over at SB, and I just tried tayda's with decent results. Any other ideas/suppliers come to mind?

I've been getting mine from abcfab on Ebay. It's thinner than Smallbears but I haven't had any problems with it. He sells different colors.

I use MG Chemicals presensitized boards which i can get locally or if ordering from Digikey, from them. If i'm in Toronto i can get Kinsten presensitized boards which are also available on ebay from various far east sellers but at no real cost advantage. The ones i did get from Asia however used a nice translucent white/green substrate as opposed to the gross brown/green crud colour of every other presensitized board i've ever purchased.

Watching this thread closely, mainly because it has a few of the Tim Escobedo projects I've never been able to get to work, like Phuncgnosis! Mr. Madbean -- looking forward!!!
