'[PICLIST] Scrap Copper Clad'
2000\12\05@231613 by Programmer1

Does anyone have a use for scrap copper clad? (raw 2 sided PCB material)

This would be chunks that are cut off when a board house makes a board.
Several odd shapes and sizes, but all would be small.  It would be great for
making small boards, like a blinking fishing lure or something.

As a hobby person my self, I can't stand to see this trashed..  Please
respond off line to spam_OUTgilesTakeThisOuTspamgplotting.com if you are interested.

Best regards,
Giles

If the pieces are larger than a square inch, then I can certianly use
some.  Where are you located?  (I'm in Michigan, US)  Ideally I could get
pieces as large as 2"x3", but I'm not too picky...

Small one-offs are easy to make with a dremel tool - use a grinding disk
and cut out the copper you don't need.  It's not pretty, but it's as
functional and sturdy as etched board, not to mention much faster
turn-around for simple layouts.

Hello all,

I seem to be the only one who uses this material (single and double-sided) for
making good RF-tight cases by soldering 5 walls together made of copper clad
scrap, and I even buy this stuff "not-so-cheaply" at HAM jumble sales. This
material is also useful for making small "3D" high frequency test circuits, I have
included the standard TTL DIPs and even ECLs into these circuits.
So: This material has lots of uses! (Even a PIC proto will be well housed if you
can leave the underside without traces!)

Greetings
Jochen Feldhaar

I built a micro "screen room" with it, about 2' x 2' x 1' for pre-scanning
products for part 15 testing.

One note: Things go better with mosfoam.  If you radiate it, it must be
absorbed somewhere.. Your circuit is a good candidate.  RF does bounce off
copper, but it's nice to give it somewhere to dissipate.

I lined the walls with mosfoam, and it's extremely stable now, all the
reflections are dead.  The RF has to go through the mosfoam to get to the
copper, then the reflection goes through again, making my mosfoam doubly
effective :)

I am disturbed by suggestions to GRIND G-10, it is NOT good to breath the fiber
dust.
It's not as bad as asbesdos, but it's the same irritation.  Use a mask or LOTS of
air when
machining glass boards.

Well, thanks for all the interest.
Please e-mail me off list if you are interested in this scrap at
RemoveMEgilesspamTakeThisOuTgplotting.com
Also, the warning about FR4/G10 dust is very good.  And as a pure
cautionary, please don't use lead traces on jewelry....
By the way, I have been updating about 6 people from this list as to the
details of this.

I am located in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Best regards,
Giles

I'm well aware of the effects of bad dust - but it is a good reminder.  (I
have mild asthma)

I have a 20"x20" filtrete filter (3M micro filter) in front of a 20" box
fan.  Whenever I'm doing grinding stuff I do it in fron of the filter, in
front of the fan so the filter catches all the dust.

       It would be wonderful to me and for lot's of people here in Brazil. But it will be expensive to send to us, eh?

$9 at most for up to 4 pounds (Global Priority Mail) most anywhere
world-wide, so a Global Priority Mail envelope could be stuffed full as
it'll fit in there and shipped off.  (9-1/2" x 12-1/2" cardboard
envelope.)

Parcel Post is slower and lots more expensive, in this case.

PayPal now handles international transfers. Brazil is on the list:

There are MANY ways.

Get a friend who has a Credit Card to transfer money for you.

Mail a check (to Giles, probably);  some banks will happily deposit any
check from any international bank for little or no fee.

Mail cash.  Wrap it first, probably, in someting opaque;  You can
usually get foreign currency at a travel agency or some (not all)
banks.  (Yes, not perfectly safe, but I've never seen a problem.  Yet.)

Mail an international postal money order.  Some countries charge a lot,
I understand;  Not too bad here in the US.

Barter?  Trade some PIC chips to someone in the US who needs them, for
PCB scraps?

COD can work, it is sorta expensive.

Western Union transfers money.  For a price.

Bank Wire Transfers ($$ costly in the US, so check with recipient
first!)

The "transfers" are international - but made to deal with your
local credit cards. Also, you can have the funds taken directly
out of your bank account too. Once you setup your account with PayPal,
your money knows no borders. [I understand the transfers fly under
the radar of Echelon and Carnivore, too <-- I didn't say that :)].

Best way I have found previously is an international money order
made out in USD.

       Only in USA. There is no such thing as a Brazilian PayPal. If was there, it could be easy to transfer money. But it isn't. I gotta have an international card to use paypal.

Alexandre,
sorry I have not been keeping up with the conversation.  I am the one with
the copper clad (and tin lead)
Alexandre, please e-mail me at gilesEraseMEspamgplotting.com if you are interested.  I
can think of cooler things than US money that I would like from Brazil.  I
have 5 other people that are interested.  I am trying to box it up this
week.

Best regards,
