    I’m looking for a supplier (Pref UK), of pre-drilled copper clad board. Just like stripboard/veroboard , with a matrix of holes, but the copper NOT cut into strips.

    I can buy online using Paypal, if postage is not a big issue.

    Any ideas?

    I can see the use of this for forming you own pcb.
    Be warned that etching solution tends to enter from the back through the holes and undercut the copper, which is why boards are normally drilled after etching. But other methods of establishing the tracks would be find.

    I would also be interested in a source of these if you find one.

    Basically you need someone with a simple CNC drill press.

    Digikey and Mouser both carry Twin Industries boards. I like the 8100 Series, which has plated-through holes on a 0.1" grid, with a plane on one side which makes a good ground plane. I usually buy the 8100-1020, which can be cut into smaller pieces if required.

    If you know of a comparable product for less that US $0.60/sq in, please post where we can get it.
