I've just found out that the Chinese can even fuck up the most basic of manufacturing processes. A goddamn fucking perfboard, why on Earth would that need good adhesive with decent mechanical strength, right?!!

Initially I was told by other electronics chaps that the adhesive under the pads melts because I'm soldering at such a high temperature (470°C). Well I thought at the time that these boards are really shitty and their adhesive is garbage, and now that I've even seen a cold pad just rip off cleanly, I guess it's confirmed. That adhesive IS fucking garbage and that temperature on the iron is really just fine.

Well, I guess that I'll just design my own PCB's then, and hope that JLCPCB isn't even more Chinesium shit. Because honestly I'm pretty fucking sick of it.

    Quality rant. Never go cheap with chinese electronics. Mostly worthless crap.

    Get OSH Park to build em? Or dirtypcbs. Good experiences with all of them

    China did well on mine. Hit up PCBWay.

    @epse I haven't yet heard of these manufacturers, thanks for the suggestion! 😃
