If you think producing PCBs is difficult... this project might change your mind.
It's true, years ago, you had to produce hundreds or even thousands of PCBs before a fab-house would want to talk to you. Now, fast-turn / low quantity services abound.
And... there are services like OSH Park that are crazy awesome.
These little purple boards cost a couple bucks for three... and will arrive in about 10 calendar days. A couple clicks, and your PCBs will be on the way!
