Updated boards just arrived with stencils :)

I will try and build up the DUALTOS board today and see if I can get the SMT socket on without melting it 8-)

Bit overcooked, but oh well, these DIY jobs never go 100% right :lol:

Still seems to be OK contact wise.. now to solder the headers and give it a good test out..

Looks like some header pins I soldered on Saturday. Slightly over done is better than dry joints any day :lol:

So slightly annoyed now.. the dualtos boards are missing the 2 inner layers :evil: So its going to push back this project again as I can't test the new boards now :(

EDIT:

I will try and hard wire the missing layers.. The via's are there.. I used copper fill on top layer connected to 0V so hopefully that will be enough to get a board working.

EDIT2:

Now working!
