Good Circuit Boards Require Good Clamping… Mikey writes –

I produced a great looking board yesterday on my little CNC mill. The solution was to add $4 worth of fender washers so that I could remove any vibration from the mill table. I’m using the same bits and configuration files between the these two circuit boards. The only thing that changed was the fender washers.

Good tips!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Good fixturing is the difference between success and failure. Always.

    Be careful with that dust. Looks like some lung cancer waiting to happen. (Insert Debbie Downer joke here)
