Looking to get about 10 simple power distribution boards made up at a relatively decent price. Does anyone know of a good place in Canada or US that has pretty good turn-around time and quality? Do any of them offer a layout or design program that you can draw this up yourself? Thanks in advance for any help.

Thank you MrChips and Max for your help.
If you were to buy outside the US/Canada, where would you get them from? If China, how long would l be looking at to get them shipped to Canada?

You can get them from China, dirt cheap, in about 2 weeks to the U.S. Oshpark takes about the same time, and is much more expensive.

If you want to pay a lot more, you can get 1 day service from some U.S. manufacturers.

Alberta Printed Circuits has a prototyping service, with no solder mask and no silk screen, next day shipping. You pay a bit more.

Depends on the carrier, China Post takes 1 month+.
The usual other option is DSL which is about 2 weeks. But higher $$ of course.

You can try oshpark.
I did and really like the results for a simple old board design respin to add a few tricks for a new project.


Replace the old variable reluctance gear sensor with a new Hall zero Hz sensor in a ion beam variable slit.

New rev of the old board green PCB with PIC18F1320 controller. Nice printing, copper and masking.

A low limit of 0.8Hz pulses deliver the original 833Hz gear signal for the machine controller using the new motor @ 1.9 RPM speed

This is OSH Park board that used the 'free' Linux 64-bit Eagle 9.2.2 manufacturing zip file menu option. I just dropped the result zip file in the web input folder hopper.
