yeah kinda fun, will be making a another one... already tried the other method of etching, using a marker to coat the pcb, Then scratching and doing a real etching. seemed ok, but i think with new bits and a slower moment i can make it work. more to do as all ways :) ~Russ

Hmm. So how deep does that go and then what is the next step?

"deep" the bit? tried to only go deep enough to cut the copper...

next step is to do this:

That is to do the marker etch method, that seems that it will work but I'm going to go back to the mill and try again. i think its better if i can get it right.

Third step : go back to the mill method. got some real bits ordered, more copper clad boards coming...  think i got a better jig set up and i found some problems and fixed them. so milling should work this time...

If you guys think that is cool, wait until Russ presents his dual-extruder (top / bottom) 3D printer that can also make double sided boards in a single pass.  No flips required.    hehe
