Cool. I just picked up a cheapo band saw to neatly cut multiple boards from a single etch.

I put a metal cutting blade on my bandsaw when cutting PCB. Finer tooths = neater cuts.

Is there an easy way to drill the boards? That's the only reason I haven't experimented with etching.
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Yes, there is. But, it depends on how much you want to invest. The most efficient way is using a Dremel and the drill press attachment they make for it. That and some carbide bits are all you need to make very high quality DIY boards. When I do the tutorial, I will go over exactly which tools I use. I've used this stuff to make thousands of boards!
Things are fine, actually.
