Friday night fun

What’s better than soldering on a Friday night? Soldering an Arduino project.

Here’s my cheap little ArduinoISP project that lets me burn bootloaders without having to wire things up on a breadboard. Just pop in a chip to be burned and away you go.

It was also my first time using the toner transfer method (both sides!) as I usually use the photo resist method. All in all, I’d say I prefer the photo resist method; it gives me a cleaner board. I’m sure with practice I could make the toner transfer method work better, but it’s nice to just lay a stencil down and let light do the work.
