PCB Drilling Machine (1)
New solutions to old problems
Published in issue 297, March 2001
Elektor Electronics is proud to present an unprecedented home construction project: a CNC PCB drilling machine which is economical, accurate, quick, and bristling with new ideas.Large-scale electromechanical projects have tended to be the exception rather than the rule in Elektor Electronics; but these exceptions have always been well received. Many readers will have fond memories of the Plotter and Plotter Mark 2 projects, which hundreds of constructors across Europe have built and which even fifteen years after publication still boasts a large fan club.There is a very good reason behind the idea of presenting an electromechanical project for home construction. Rather than the fascinating and in places supremely elegant and unusual design, it is the cost saving that drags the ambitious hobbyist away from the soldering iron to less familiar tools.
