    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.

    I'm not ure about the GBC 65 but with the 220 you can swap the two drive gears which helps a bit.
