PCB Milling Information

Send your Eagle CAD *.brd or KiCAD/other Gerber files to sb.mcmaster@ieee.org to have them milled.

The cost is $1.50 per square inch for single-sided boards and $2.00 per square inch for double-sided boards. There is a minimum board order of $5. If your order is not over $5 multiple copies can be milled to make up the rest.  Orders over $15 (single sided 10 sq. inch OR double sided 7.5 sq. inch) must be paid for prior to milling.

The minimum trace width should be 10 mil (10 one-thousandths of an inch). We recommend a minimum of 12 mil.  In order to prevent issues with mirrored boards please add text onto your board, this also makes it easier to identify which board belongs to you. The minimum hole inner diameter is 20 mil. The holes are not plated so if you have a two-sided board you will have to make the connection between the two layers yourself. Cut off legs of resistors usually work well.

The above prices do not include rub-outs (removal of excess copper from the board). Rub-outs will be priced on a case by case basis as it is time consuming and quickly wears out bits. In most cases they are not required.

WE MILL ON THURSDAY AFTERNOONS. IF YOUR BOARD IS IN BY THURSDAY MORNING AT 10:00 AM  WE WILL TRY TO HAVE IT READY FOR FRIDAY.

RUSH ORDERS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST, EXTRA FEES MAY BE INCURRED.
