Just a thought but there should be two 7 Amp fuses (F1 & F2) on the main board - these relate to each RF board supply.

These are the prototypes of a solder paste mask for a small SMD circuit board. It was really just a test of Art's mathematics to see if the engraving plugin maintained it's scale and aspect ratio which, of course, it does. So easy to make that they are throw away items and don't really have to last for that many uses but we will see how they hold up. The cut-outs are the same size as the solder pads on the pcb which is perhaps a mistake as I now think that they could be made smaller and thus apply slightly less paste. As with everything new, you read-up on it first but practical experience always wins out in the end.

Thanks Spruft.
If that was a good use of the laser then this has got to be the daftest - my own personal Grain of Rice.  ;D ;D

He's only done the one. Tweakie is smart enough to only have to do the one, plant it, and the rest simply grow already monogrammed.
