How to Drill a Circuit Board

When selecting drill bits it is a good idea to select bits made for drilling circuit boards, there is a difference.
Drill out the holes that will be used to pass component leads through. When drilling the boards you should use a drill press on the highest speed. If you try to drill the holes by hand I guarantee you will break quite a few bits since circuit board bits are very brittle.

That’s it, solder in your components and call it a day.

Positioning the board isn’t the hard part, pulling the drill press lever up and down at a rate that won’t break the fragile tiny drill bit it the thing to watch. This PCB Hole Driller project will solve this issue by allowing you to simply position the board and hit a foot switch. The system will automatically drill a hole at the rate selected. This is sure to get some good mileage out of those fragile drill bits that love to snap. […]

  2. How a PCB (Printed Circuit Board) is made - Hacked Gadgets - DIY Tech Blog Says:

    […] Making your own PCBs boards is a time consuming task. If I need to make 1 or 2 simple boards I don’t mind spending some time and building a few but if you will ever need more than that you better look at getting them made by a professional PCB manufacturer. This means that drawing a picture of your copper layer in a graphics program and printing it on a transparency won’t exactly cut it since all of the PCB manufacturers will need Gerber and Excellon files. But with these files they can work their magic. […]
