Post Make PCBs using a mini CNC Router under $200

Hi everyone, I have did some research to find a cheap CNC router to make prototype PCBs and I have came across this one: The 1610 CNC. Link is in the description of m video if you guys want to check it out. So I have bought one, not expecting much and the result were very good, clean circuit boards. I've got the traces as thin as 0.6 mm. I have made a YouTube video showing the process of make a PCB using this machine. I also have the parts I have used and the software in the description.

Here is my video if you guys want to check it out on YouTube: -->>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPzTergqIUA<<--

Below are some pictures of the end results with this cheap machine.

Welcome to the forum First Try.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Are you aware that this is a woodworking forum?

Wondered, but hard to tell at times.

No links to any site where products are being sold so doesn't quite fit the criteria. We'll give him a chance and see where he goes with this. Maybe this is useful to the CNC crowd?

Doilies? I don't think I'll be making any doilies this lifetime. But coasters? I can make as many as I want, with what I have right now, no need to buy any el cheapo CNC machine. I can see it now, the new CNC - coffee n coasters.

Doilies would be the next level if they turn out.

You know you want it

Well, if you're right, post pictures of how they turn out.

Already got it, just poured myself a fresh mug full.
