DIY PCB design tutorials

After the pcb printer etch a few weeks ago I went looking for a good tutorial on PCB design. When you are working with a homebrew solution it's a little difficult to know how big a signal trace should be verses a power trace etc. I found some good resources around the net and realized i never posted them on GI!

This first tutorial is rather in-depth and covers a lot of stuff including industrial PCB making processes.

This Instructable is about using Eagle PCB with the printer toner transfer method. It even has a config file for trace, via and clearance values.

And for those wise in the ways of printer toner PCBs, try using a key to make double sided boards!
