not cheap?

While the 2 week turn around issue still stands, prices for low volume manufacturing have dropped through the floor with companies like OSHPark.  $5 per sq inch and you get 3 copies  of a full spec 2 layer boards shipped to your door.  I have also had boards back in as little as 6 business days, though that's not the norm.


I've done self etched boards, as well as have access to a board router, but the hassle of not having plated vias and holes has pushed me well past the pain threshold.  There's certainly still a use for home grown boards and this looks like it takes plenty of pain out, but for personal projects I can wait.

Will you call it desktop?

The way it is described, it is difficult to call it desktop. Chemicals and other things, need WHMIS, MSDS and safe place to work. May be laboratory is safe place.
