It all finally seems to be coming together, I’ve finally received a bill from Border force for the parcel of IN7s which has been paid and they’re scheduled for delivery on Monday. The new baseboard PCBs which are 1/8th of the board each are done, after 3 redesigns (mostly to make sure everything fitted, the second design coil formers were 0.5mm out) and will be in production from tomorrow.
These are now 100% through hole with no surface mount components and are much easier to build compared to the original. 8 of these are needed and should take around 2 hours each to assemble.
‘Fancy’ version for a future glass topped board.
