Aha... Just an empty trailing apostrophe at the end. I'll try to remember that.

Will do, thanks.

Apostrophes are the most difficult punctuation (if it actually belongs in the punctuation group at all?) to get right.

"The PCB's are blue" or "The PCBs are blue"?
"DP is Ians company" or "DP is Ian's company"?

And how do you do with a name that ends with a S like my name?

"DP is not Mats company" or "DP is not Matss company" or "DP is not Mats's company"?
Here maybe the easiest thing to do is just rewriting the sentence.
"Mats does not own DP"


DP is not Mats' company

They look long at the board, but in reality they are only 28 and 29 mm - completely surrounded by ground at the back, both sides and between them.

But I might be able to shift things around a bit and have the pic in the middle of the board instead....

The gerbers are sent to Seeed (with an apostrophe in Conway's).

I also put in an order for laser cut acrylics. A board with 30 holes sized from 2.10 to 2.39 mm for determining the best size to use for 2.5 mm dowels as discussed in this thread viewtopic.php?f=19&t=4984&p=48100&hilit=dowels#p48113

You monster!

I found that 2.35mm was about right, but it depends hugely on the laser.

Are you sure you don't want a tooling block? There's two left!

No, I'm not sure.... I'm seriously considering getting one of these...
