Thanks Matt!,

What is the average thickness for photo etch that we use on our model upgrades?

Thanks

Craig..



About 120 micrometers IIRC.

Since you are not concerned with etching accuracy, just buy some from eBay.

Hi guy's!,

I was wondering if any of you know where one could purchase just plain photo etch sheets just for practicing soldering techniques. I'd like to get a hold of some before I touch my expensive Tetra kit!

Thanks

Craig..
