I had assumed that I couldn't do this without a laser printer. Wow, thanks man.... Seems fairly easy to pull off!

Oh, by the way, I read this after following your link from the burst button circuit box thread. Thanks for that, and point proven.

The ''never ending busrt thread'' finally serve someone! Can we use a killswitch instead of a printer? What's the stainless thing you use? Can we use copper like Mr. White? :P

Nice work!
Regarding your choice of progressing drill bits until you reach the right size, a machinists rule of thumb is to pre-drill a hole with a drill diameter of 3 times the web of the bigger drill. There is no need to go 1mm at a time.
Even more so, for a spiral drill to properly cut, it needs to "see" material. So if you're going to drill 12mm and the web of this drill is something like 3mm, predrill with 9mm, the web of this drill is probably something like 1,5-2mm so pre-drill with 4,5-6.
But you will need to support the enclosure when drilling, especially for the larger drill bits.

How about gluing a piece of plexiglas or acrylic plate between the box and the film and drill a hole in the plexi for the led.

I imagine it will give a backlight effect on the drawing and maybe a light emitting border.

Off course it depends on how transparent the ink is, and I can also see some potential problems of mounting potmeters and switches if the plexiglas is too thick

I got the idea from this thread:

EDIT: Off course R.G.has something to say about this (from the thread above):

 Lovely, clear layout Rick.

 I think the Spock graphic is killer.
 The colors are much richer in the whilst it is laying on a white background. Which got me thinking....
 Have you considered adding white paint behind any non-black areas. The blue of Spock's tunic and Phaser ray are the most noticeable ares in the photos.
 It's the old printers don't print white thing.

Thanks for posting that Rick - looks like hell of a lot of effort went into making that tutorial.  I'm keen to track down some overhead sheets and try this one out.

What is that wire called that you use? It looks a lot cleaner than single strands. Where could I find it?

By the way, Rick, I love your Spock box. I am planning on building your phaser project when I get a chance. Beam my a$$ up! ;D

Thanks Chris, Science Officer Spock was a childhood obsession with me. He's just sooooooo cool. Apart from when he broke into song: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1189977381292772054

Nice work.  Does it happens that bubbles get trapped under the film ?

Ha ha. Me too, Rick. I was about 7 when they aired the first episode, and I was lucky enough to have watched. The next day my brother and I organized the neighborhood kids into pretending we were the characters. I was cast as "Spark". We didn't realize what his real name was for a couple more episodes....

And Frank_P, to respond to your question, since the film is stiff, and there is fresh clear coat on the box and the film, I have not had problems with air bubbles. I have had the film come up while cutting the holes for the pots...For the time being it hasn't been an issue, though, since the washer for the pot holds it back down while it dries thoroughly.

I've never used the laser jet film, but I'm guessing it would work the same with a laser jet printer. Please try it and report back!

Nice graphics there dude.

Is there any adhesive on the sheets or does the clear coat bond the sheet to the metal??  Cheers.
