Etching and soldering workshop in the syn2cat hackerspace

Learn how to produce your own circuit board (PCB).

In the first part of the workshop you will get an introduction into PCBs and the whole fabrication process. This part will be theoretical but the presentation will be kept short. After a few slides, pictures and words you will know all single step.

The second part becomes more practical and might be the most interesting if you’ve never observed copper being removed by an acid before. Hold your own fresh etched PCB in your hands! Of course with gloves!

Finally you’re going to solder it and after all this you’ll have your own remote control to switch off any TV.

Don’t let you disturb by TVs in restaurants, shopping centers or just annoy your mates by hiding your remote control somewhere in the living room. If you take it with you on your next shopping day, please do not harm the TVs.


December 28th, this Friday has to be marked red in your calendar.

The workshop starts at 6 p.m. and doesn’t (hopefully) last longer than 2 hours.


There are none. You don’t need to know anything about electronics nor about etching and soldering. If you are a noob, you are absolutely right there. Experienced people are welcome too!


The attendance is free but if you want to solder your own circuit board you need to pay the material cost of about 15 euro.

If you plan to attend, please register here.

Note: if you don’t show up on the event day no refund is possible due to the kits to be preordered. Your ordered material will be considered as a donation then.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.

A bit of the history

This workshop is another edition of the workshop series The Famous Etching and Soldering Workshop held in a few locations in the past two years. The last time it took place in the shackspace at the Large Hacker Convention where we built a radio transmitter. Get some expressions here: www.➡.ws/LHC2.

Until now all the attendees found the workshops awesome and enjoyed it a lot.
