Hello , i have a project to build a PCB drill machine but i don't know the vocabulary to express myself. What i want to build is a computer controlled machine to drill holes on a sheet of copper/fiberglass, a PCB. Where can i find the abc of such thing or if anyone who already built one can guide me ?
well if all your after is for it to drill the holes, you could build one of the mini routers found elsewhere on the site.. use a dremel for the spindle, use mdf or something of the like for the frame, and i have even seen allthread bought at homedepot for the leadscrews... you could probably get it to mill the traces out with some practice.. then you wouldnt even have to mess with the ferric chloride to etch the boards.. just make a basic gantry router and take lots of pics.. we love pics..
