It's always unfortunate when tools break, especially in the middle of a job, but the delay works perfectly for me. While mulling over the design, a new idea came along, and now I have to try it. That means more routing, and about five designs to eventually send off for production, probably including the one pictured previously. I may have to stick with green/leaded HASL just to keep costs reasonable; maybe red/leaded HASL if it doesn't cost more. After all, it doesn't matter how pretty they are if the first-round prototypes don't even work.
