Small Board Layout


Although the large board used on the 1928 B1 mount was adequate, I desired a more compact board for use in a 1930 Western Electric D1 mount.


As before, the board was made by scoring two parallel lines on the the copper with an Xacto knife for each needed separation, then peeling the copper between the lines off of the circuit board. After the separations were made, the board was sanded, and then, tinned using a water-soluable solder paste. All components were surface mounted. The screw terminals shown in the layout were not needed for this phone so wires were just soldered directly to the track.
