QuoteThere are places in the U.S. that can make PCBs for much less than that.I've not been able to find one. In most cases, there is a setup charge that makes small lots uneconomical.Places I have tried were not able to accomodate combining small boards into a panel for unique users.I suppose if you wanted to take on that task, as dorkbot/patchpcb has done, and with a US manufacturer, you might make a go of it.

So how is that better than a 10-lot at $0.99/5cmx5cm board + $5-8shipping,http://imall.iteadstudio.com/open-pcb/pcb-prototyping/im120418001.htmlor a 10-lot at$2.49/10cmx10cm board plus similar shipping?http://imall.iteadstudio.com/open-pcb/pcb-prototyping/im120418003.htmlSunstone, 10-lot of 2"x2" = $145. Not exactly hobbiest friendly.4pbc = 10-lot would supposedly by $330.
