    For the past three years I have used PCB cart, no problem with their service
    or quality, but I have found them to become a bit pricey lately.
    I took a gamble and gave another Chinese company a shot for a small order.
    Their price and delivery time was better, and the boards are equally as
    good. The delivery time was not an issue to me, maybe they were just trying
    to impress a new customer?
    If anyone is interested in the company's name, reply indicating such to this
    post and I will provide the details - don't want to be seen as a troll ;-(

    Slightly off topic... but would appreciate some advice on setting up for getting some PCBs made. I've made my own in the past so have just had to generate suitable artwork (embarrased to say I was still using Protel easytrax last time I did one - a while ago).

    Any advice on software appreciated. Also how do I spec drill sizes as I've never had to worry about that before, making my own boards? What files willthe manufacturers expect from me etc? Pointers to online resources would be fine to save wasting your time.
