Hey all. I been wondering where to get PCBs made for quite cheaply. I've been making my own PCB for a while now but I would like a more Professional looking PCBs. I mean with a soldermask and silkscreen. I'll probly need between 40 and 50 for the first order. I've looked at 123pcbs.com and expresspcbs but they're to expensive. I was looking at the guys post that has the chaser circuit and he has really nice pcbs and it seems to me that he got them quite cheaply.

PCB = printed circuit board.

lilpro: Here seem to be reasonably priced, although they mainly concentrate on small runs, I plan on using them soon as I only need 10/20 pcb's doing, but at least they're cheap to get a couple done just to check the design etc is cool for their format etc. which means you get to see the quality before you get stung with a batch of bad pcb's

I made em in my electronics class in school.. it wasn't easy at all. First you have to print the circuit then you gotta get the uv sensitive pcb then u put it in saline water for a while. Then you put it in an engraver for a while then you put it in some more saline water. I wish i had access to that equipment...... arghhh dry.gif
