Get a PCB without traces.
A pen and acid to make the traces, that's all.
Then a drill bit with a diameter below 1mm to make the holes.

your best bet on getting them from a local store is radioshack.  Ask for their "PCB Etching kit".  other than that, all you need is a copper-clad board, Etching solution (Ferric chloride [FeCl]) and a plastic tub, a sharpie, or masking tape and cutters.

You could use plastic board wrapped in tin foil, which should be glued to the board. draw the circuit on the paper, trace it to the foil, cut it with the exacto, poke holes than solder componets. Im not exactly sure if that will work, but that is the cheapest way. You should use copper-clad board if you want best results, also those "PCB kits" are very easy to work with:)

hm... nice ideas first i would like to know what kind of acid do you use and if it's not a problem could you describe the whole procedure. :wtf:

Second what about those pcb kits, could you name some of them with brand name and model nr.  :tool:

Thnx :D
