Hi everyone,

I followed the PCB Fab in a box to make pcb's with the laminator they suggested, the GBC-H65. I bought one (£50) and it does bugger all. I opened it up hoping that it was a simple NTC resistor but found that the board is a little complex. Does anyone know how to increase the temperature of the laminator so that it can melt the toner onto the copper clad boards???

Many thanks,

I bought the GBC 212 and it has a heat control. I crank it all the way up and it seems to do fine.

Really tiny boards it seems to have issues but other than that I get good results.
