Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit to get you started, instructions are a little sketchy though. With better instructions this would be an awesome starting point. That said I had excellent results with the products provided

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great kit to get you started in your own pcb manufacturing. It provided me with enough supplies to make about 2 circuits. I must emphasise that as with anything it takes practice to get it right and I have found YouTube videos a great help in demonstrating how to get great results, as mentioned before the instructions are quite bad. I would recommend buying a few more pre sensitised boards as well just in case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could do with an etch resist pen in the kit to get you going Without an etch resist pen in the kit I would hardly call this a beginner's kit as you then have to start looking all over the place for a suitable one or other technique.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contains 3 PCBs + 1 photo board and only the photo board matches the size specified. The rest are scrap pieces - small and with irregular shape.
