UV lightbox for PCB making

Posted on Tuesday, November 27th, 2012 in DIY, LEDs, PCBs by the machinegeek


Dieter Oelofse built this UV light box for making PCBs and wrote a detailed explanation describing the build. “I needed something that could illuminate a board from both the top and bottom simultaniously, in order to avoid complex re-allignment of the top and bottom layers in between exposures. Secondly, it need to fit on my desk, since working in the garage is a pain. So I settled on a box built from MDF from the local hardware store and UV LEDs.”
