Abstract : Methods for producting reliable printed circuits for prototype work are discussed. Two methods, based on etching of standard copper-laminate boards are found most practical for small-shop prototypes and are described in detail. The silk-screen process, using hand-cut stencil film is considered better than handdrawing where several identical circuit boards are needed. Step-by-step use of the silk-screen process is given; it is concluded that the process offers a low-cost way of reproducing accurately more than 200 prints per hour with unskilled hands and minimum equipment.
