    Has anyone got any more details on the device pictured in http://tinyurl.com/5ept8e
    - the original site appears to be down, and the wayback machine is
    having trouble retrieving the site... It looks build-able, if only
    more details (the chemistry being used, the times, the temperatures
    of
    the baths, etc.)

    Looking at http://tinyurl.com/6r38ro it seems that powdered graphite
    is a reasonable first stage for preparing the board for copper-
    plating, and it's a happy side-effect that the drill rubs the
    graphite
    into the hole when it withdraws from the hole.

    Alternatively, anyone had any experience with the LPKF 'contac rs' or
    'miniContac rs' machines ? And how much were they ?

    Cheers,
    Simon
