BreadBox Desktop Circuit Board Maker: Etchanting

by Lambert Varias

We’ve featured a variety of compact kits that you can use to print circuit boards on a variety of materials. But if all you want is to make a standard PCB using copper board, check out BreadBox. It’s a 7 cu.in. device that automates the etching process. It could save makers thousands of dollars and help small companies make polished products.

The BreadBox has two reservoirs – one for etchants and one for cleaner solutions – and can make up to five 5.9″ x 3.9″ circuit boards at a time. Expert makers can pick the etchant they want, but the folks behind BreadBox will release a tool to help you figure out which solution to use. To get rid of the resulting fumes, the BreadBox is equipped with a 2,000rpm exhaust fan. The device itself will have a protective coat to prevent damage from etchants.

Pledge at least $249 (USD) on Kickstarter to get a BreadBox as a reward. You should visit the comments section on the Kickstarter page if you want to get into the details of the device; inventor BreadBox Technologies have been responsive and open to questions.
