DIY photoetch?
« on: October 03, 2017, 03:21:06 am »
After having used PE parts for the first time on a tank I wondered if any of you make your own PE?
I tinker with a lot of things and one of them is electronics design. I make my own PCB's (circuit boards) at home with great results at low cost, and I thought it wouldn't be that different to etch a thin sheet of brass than to etch FR4 (the most common type of circuit board substrate we use).
Any of you doing this?

I've watched a couple of vids on you tube on how to do it.
Doesn't look to different from etching pcb's. Haven't tried
it myself though.

I've also watched some videos and it doesn't seem difficult, but that said, there has to be something or else everyone would be doing it.
