Dan from Rheingold Heavy has a fun story about how a flaw in an order of remotely manufactured PCBs made him turn to locally made (like in his own shop) circuit boards.
Previously, my attitude towards this was that it wasn’t much of an issue: money lost on parts and money lost to respinning the board, but I can get money from selling more boards. What I could not do, what I cannot recreate, is the time lost to getting that board respun.
In two hours, I accomplished what would take a board fab four weeks at best to accomplish on my budget.
