for informational purposes, and future reference, I need insight into transfering the printed circuit board tracks onto a blank pcb for etching..
Now options that are a no no for me are: laser printer toner. we have a inkjet printer, and that is it. so th eiron on toner trick is a no go.
to put it bluntly, i have a sharpie pen, and chemical etchetant. I have to draw my boards by hand, and scratch the overlaps with a sharp soldering tool tip (not an iron, some sharp pointy thing). and no ordering custom boards from an online company either.
I have made a few boards already this way, one of them housing an atmega168 to drive a servo.
Another for a rs232 to ttl converter (its on my forum), and another for my R2 robot im making(its only a bridge atm with power distrib).
But as i progress things are gonna get more complicated and the risk of pitting and undercutting will be greater and less acceptable.
are there any suggestions that will help me, and any other people trying to get round this, that can be given?
