The genius component is that you can then assemble a PCB by simply just stamping down the many circuit parts you want. The boards will however want to be drilled if you’re doing work with by-gap components, but tipster [Shri] notes that the system is tremendous valuable for producing solitary-sided surface area mount boards.

We’ve found some other unique strategies to manufacturing PCBs at household, such as utilizing a 3D printer to aid out. If you have acquired your own innovative homebrew PCB hacks, be certain to drop us a line!

Many thanks [Shri Hari Ram] for the tip!
