Step 1: Tools you need

Some tools you might need:

material to make PCB:s or a "board house"
some materials to mount on the PCB:s
a stationary drill and some mill and drill bits
a spare nokia 3310 lcd if you brake it :(
a microSD card

Microchip PICkit2 to program the uP

Make the PCB:s your self or let a "Board house" do them for you.

The file for the PCB:s are right here:

Step 4: Finnish the PCB:s

Solder on all components on the PCB:s and make some modification :( .

Step 5: Mill and drill

But of the 3310 it remains little! But you are an industry?My compliments!
I would really like to do this one. I need some more detail. The bread board pictures are at an angle. It would be easier if I could just grab the image process it, iron and acid wash the needed board.
