About PCB Drills
Tiny, delicate patterns measured in micrometres, with callipers the size of a doll?s tools; the need for absolute precision and a steady hand when using a PCB drill; and material that can crack under the wrong bit or speed. What?s not to love about creating original electronics? The hobby is driven by the spirit of invention. It may start out as a desire to tinker around with a pre-fabricated ?build your own radio? type kit, but once the obsession sets in, there?s no going back. Choosing a pattern for your layout is just the first step. You must precisely measure original designs to fit the available board space. Once you lay the pattern out, drilling the holes takes precision, and a PCB drill press, available from reliable eBay sellers, is the best tool for the job. Micrometre measurements and delicate instruments may be the source of frustration for many inventors, but there?s nothing like the thrill of flipping a switch and having a finished project come to life.
