Equipment that we have
Page in development - need to re-size pics for better display--Dclarke 05:52, 13 June 2012 (EST)
Bubble Etch Tank - on loan from James Fowkes
UV exposure unit - on loan from James Fowkes
Lightbox - new addition, hacked from emergency exit light by David Clarke
PCB Drill - Stand on loan from James Fowkes, precision drill on loan from David Clarke
The MaxiCraft drill, from RS has a 12V power pack, but can run on 9-18V d.c. With a suitable 18V power pack, the drill will run at 18000RPM
The chuck capacity is 3.2mm, and there are also some collets (which replace the chuck, which simply unscrews) which can be used with micro drill bits with a 2.5mm shank.
Micro Drills, Collets and Soldering Iron Bits are stored in this small cabinet.
