Uh, JD...
I just rechecked the lettering. The only lettering on the copper layer is my tracking/board number (PE-146A), as well as my 'DH-99' date (year) stamp. All normally created text always comes out backwards on the copper layer with EasyTrax - which is why I don't put the wiring labels on the copper layer. I do create a backwards year stamp every year, that way it prints correctly on the copper layer.  
 
 
 
All text on the overlay (component) drawing, with all the wiring labels will print correctly, on paper, to help when wiring the board.

Hey Dean,  
 
 
 
Yes, it was the PE-146A printing that was a little confusing to me at first. The confusion can be put aside if you concentrate on the fact that pin one of all ICs is square (very nice). I'll make a note of that on the site. I'm debating about reversing that PE-146A text. I could do that easily on the GIF.  
 
 
 
Thanks,

PS - Thanks for letting me know that other text is DH-99, I thought it was "ED dd" :)

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Re: Uh, JD... EasyTrax text flippin'
Dean,  
 
You can reverse text in EasyTrax - which is handy in case you want the text on the copper side to print normally. Just select the text string and hit the 'x' key. Keeps me from getting paranoid I etched a circuitboard wrong ;-)

Wellll, I'll be! Thanks for the tip, Bart!  
 
 
 
Since it took me a minute to figure out what you meant by 'select', it's m(ove) s(tring), and then select the text to reverse, and hit 'x'. Works great!

An EasyTrax printing question
Are there any printer or postscript drivers for Easyplot that would allow tabloid size (11"x17") pages on a HP Laserjet 4MV?

Do you have Acrobat? (the whole enchilada, not just the reader) If so I think you can print to a pdf using either the distiller or the regular pdf maker and then send it to your 4MV from Acrobat Reader.  
 
ok,
