    I have a few circuit layouts that I've been trying to get printed out
    so I can create a printed circuit board (I've read about the laser
    printer method). I've downloaded numerous PCB software tools
    (expressPCB, etc) and am having a hard time getting things to work
    right so I end up with a design that has all the traces run correctly
    and the like.

    I was wondering if anyone out there that was familiar with design
    software would volunteer and create the design in whatever PCB
    software program you have and send me the file.

    The layouts are pretty simple. If you go to you'll see
    three or so layouts (Schmitt, transistor photogate, and delay). I've
    successfully created these on a breadboard, but I want to have an
    actual circuit board that I can mount in a box and use permanently in
    the field.

    If anyone would like to help, I would greatly appreciate it.

    These are really simple schematics..... I'm surprised you're having trouble!
    Several of them call for off board components but beyond that you should be
    able to do this in a few minutes.... Did you try looking at Circuit Layout?
    Even the free software you've looked at should be able to do these

    I'd be glad to help you work through the issues but you ought to give it a
    little more effort....Send me an email if you're really stuck.

  3. Why go to all the trouble of making a PCB for such relatively simple
    circuits? Stripboard ('Veroboard' in in UK) would be my obvious

    Those circuits are so simple that you don't even need CAD software. Just
    design the layout on graph paper and transfer the pattern onto the PCB using
    cellulose paint or a resist pen, then etch the board.
