and here's the boards
it was made in a bit of a rush so i unfortunately forgot to put on some silly silkscreen...
shiny and chrome!
protip: get one of those solder paste squeegees from aliexpress. this is my first try and it's perfect (for my standards). it's a world of a difference compared to an old credit/plastic card.
@ln those look perfect! especially compared to the exacto knife solder paste technique.

@uint8_t @ln it works, in that it produced working boards even with a QFN microcontroller, although this particular design made me yearn for a pick-and-place.
