    This looks like a very useful circuit for me. I put DC motors on my machine tools, up to 1.5 HP @ 90 VDC. I looked a some software to make a custom PCB and was overwhelmed by the complexity of generating it. So, is there an easier way to make a clean looking board with terminals and mounting holes?

    For one-off's I use Stripboard Prototyping Boards
    Halfway down the page.
    Use a 1/8th drill to open a trace, the holes can be opened up to accommodate terminal strip etc.
    Use a Box cutter knife to run down between each strip to check for shorted strips that may occur.
    There is also strip board software out there to assist in layout etc.
