The Photo-Resist, but I Couldn't

Got my package from Micro-Mark yesterday, and it was like Christmas. Some Caboose throws, and a depth gauge, and some really neat micro-saws the size of a #11 blade (already tried them, work great). But the real jewel was their Photo-Etching System. I really didn't have a specific project that needed photo-etched parts, but I couldn't pass up the low sale price. Damn you, Mass Marketing!  I'm sure something will occur to me, but I am open to suggestions as well, if any of you have any ideas. I went through the instruction manual last night, and it is a lot more involved than I expected. But hell, back in the 70's I used to develop Ektachrome slide film with Kodak's 20-step E-4 kit, so I'm sure I'll muddle through this.

Now if Micro-Mark would really drop the price of a resistance solderer.................



  1. Hi Don,

    I'm sure you can build your own resistance solderer:

    Nice blog, by the way!

    Continue the great work.

    I'd love to have such a workshop at home.


  2. Ladies and genlemen, My friend Neelix, who just lit up France on my 'Blog map.' He is a veritable fountain of knowledge and links.

    Thanks for the link to the Resistance Solderer PDF, it looks like I have a new project.

    Thanks for your kind words, I was starting to wonder if people were even able to leave comments.

    Thanks, Don
