PCBs available in the UK

I'm new to the Forum and this is my first post, so Hi to everyone on here.

I'm building a Mendel and am having problems sourcing PCBs in the UK.

I have looked into getting a batch of boards made and was wondering if anyone would be interested in buying bare boards.

If I get a batch of 20 boards made the cost will be about £65 inc VAT plus delivery for a Motherboard, Extruder Controller and 3 Stepper Drivers.

I do not intend to get endstops made since the boards will be about £5 ea for something that can be built on a bit of stripboard.

The boards I intend to make are RepRap Motherboard v1.2, Extruder Controller ec-2.2, Stepper Motor Driver v2.3.

I am pricing up components and may be able to offer kits of parts or built boards later.

That's quite a good price, about 3 pounds per set. May I ask where you are ordering these from?

Sorry about the delay in replying to your post. I have been away.

That was the cost per set, not total cost.

I have found that the Allegro parts are on very long lead times, so have deceided not to make boards.

There are some Motherboards on ebay at the moment for £7.50 (item 150471133361)

I have bought a board from him and they look good quality. I have no connection to the seller.

I intend to try using the Pololu stepper drivers.

This will just leave the extruder controller to source.
