RE: [TCML] PC boards


If you have a dremmel or a very sharp knife you can gouge out the gaps in
the tracks without etching. this can be assisted by heating the cut "tracks"
with an iron & pealing off the copper clad. Very messy to do, the results
are really not pretty and its only useful for a quick fix for a few

Hy Scott,

Radio Shack used to sell a packet of rub on transfers for PC boards, comes
with lines, curves, pads, etc.
You apply the rub-onz and then soak board in the etchant. Be sure to drill
all holes before applying the rub-onz.

another thought ( not tried) is automotive pin striping tape..... lots of
widths and pretty colors too :)
