WIP Verifying Total Recall, Etcher's Paradise version
« on: October 30, 2017, 05:01:21 PM »
Hi everyone,
I will use this thread to make a small log of my adventure in building the Etcher's Paradise version of the Total Recall delay.
When I've seen Brian's post about this one I've knew that I'll build it someday. It looked so big! Very impressive. And when Paul gave me the opportunity to get the Xvive MN3005 at a bargain, I knew time was arrived.

1st Step, Etching the board.

For this one, I've stop using ferric chloride and tried sodium persulfate. It works great. A little bit slower but great results.
First board was a fail. I've just made a knew revelator mix and maybe it was too light.
This is the result after more than 1 hour of etching:





2nd board is perfect. 20 minutes of etching:

Impressive.

I've tried etching before but don't have the patience. I used to stay late where I worked at that point to use the drill press. Then I said fuck this I'll build it on Vero or find a PCB. But It is definitely a useful skill to have.

I salute your effort. Keep us informed. I'd be interested to know in the end how many hours you put in.

In france we have a saying that goes "when you love you don't count." ;-)

In the UK we have the phase "ffs how many fucking holes" ;D

On a serious note I love the phrase and thanks for sharing it!

I know the saying. Often DIY is not about saving time or money.

I'm not French but live in paris, am married to a French girl and I am in the process of becoming a French citizen (lance la Marseillaise versione Serge Gainsbourg)

Next Step, drilling end tining

I used to drill my boards with a small hand-driller but for this board, which have the biggest count of holes I've ever done, I've buy a small drill stand. It went well but it was a bit tedious...




After a bath of liquid tin:



I've also had the time to solder the 17 links:





That's it!
