||Using plexi as eyelet / turret board material?|
Can anyone suggest any problems that might come up from using 1/8-3/16" plexi as eyelet/turret board material.
I have been using the standard G10 board.
Heat from the soldering iron melting it would be the only problem I could see.
Any input is welcome.

Plexi (or Perspex as we call it over here) melts at 150 degrees C. It wouldn't stand a chance with a soldering iron!

Thanks for confirming my suspicions on that!

What about using a carbide drill to make a board from glass... !8-O

maybe not glass, but how about ceramic tile?

I've used 1/8" polycarbonate with pretty good results, although I'm a little curious as to the "carbon"-ate- does anyone know if this stuff actually contains any carbon & if so, enough to make a diff? As for the ceramic thing, I found a gutted Tektronix O-scope (shame) on the street a while back that was loaded with these ceramic terminal strips that look and work great-if anyone knows where to get these things, please let me know!
