I etched my own boards years ago, when I was a kid in my teens. I haven’t
done it since and don’t want to. I don’tWant to have the chemicals around
or to properly dispose of them.

I’ve designed a few fairly complex PCBs in circuit maker/trax maker and
had them made by 4pcb, but again probably over 10 years ago. I would prefer
to be able to buy blank pcb’s if not a kit.

Is this cap leakage meter of Mr. Carson’s able to be built without a
printed PCB? If not, does anyone have extra PCBs that they sell? I remember
with 4pcb, I think 5 was the minimal prototype order, maybe 20.

I will have to join and find out I guess. I can get all that information at
the $2 per month level?

It looks like a great leakage detector.
Mr Carlson's Patreon starts at $2/month and it's worth every penny, in
my opinion.

He publishes PCBs and schematics along with video walkthroughs.

I built one of those testers. They are very useful. Built two
one with an analog meter and one with the LED display and variable
voltages. This is a superb piece of test gear. Excellent and compact
