1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    This video is very unusual. It is stacked with remarkably credible tips, any one of which would normally be a 5 minute click-bait video. BY FAR the best thing I've ever seen on hobby use of SMD.

    Excellent. Thanks.

    I've built a few projects by hand milling copper clad board - it's a fraught and unpleasant process!
    I like his magic copper scratcher, that is so much quicker, albeit limited to straight lines.

    His straight line limitation is partially circumvented by his later/additional technique of selectively bridging islands back together.

    I think this Stanley blade might make a better "scratcher tool" blank than the exacto blade he used.
