Q: whats the cheapest way to strip the conductive film off bakelite (circuit boards)? Answered
hi, when i was apprentice 40 years ago we use bakelite a lot (before plastic etc became all the rage) - great stuff, nice to work with. when i dismantle old electronic gadgets i always keep the board, too. in some future applications, however, they need to be rendered non-conductive. we used acid to etch boards.... is there a very cheap and simple way to strip off the conductive layer - short of sanding it off, etc. cheers, and have a good one, but not too good either.
