    Hello there - sorry for what I am sure is a very stupid question but... shouldn't the white markings on this board indicate where the copper is underneath? As you can see from the 2 pictures, the white markings on the top don't match the copper on the bottom - is this right?

    Thank you!

    In pic 1 and 2 is it the same piece of board flipped over ?

    Have you changed position of jumper wire in pic 2 ?

    As i can see the two vertical lines are not the center of the board yes ?

    I think the white lines do match the copper traces.

    It is exactly the same piece of board flipped over - the jumper is in exactly the same position in each picture - one is just taken from the top and the other from the bottom...

    Unbelievable... I thought that I must be wrong but could't see any way around it - I spent 5 hours on a circuit on the other half of the board without noticing until just now... So presumably, the board can still be used if I just ignore the white markings...

    Exactly. besides the copper side is what you really need !

    By the way, have you consedered having a pcb made for your circuit instead of making it on a perforated board ?

    Definitely . . . . . one half of a . . . . .Radius Shackimus board . . . .

    Can even be built into . . . an innovative city abode . . . .
