Cutting & prepping copper clad
step 2 of 6

Cut a square from copper clad

We'll start with the copper clad example.

Cut out two small squares of copper clad using the wire cutting part of your wire strippers (usually located at near the joint of the tool). You will hear some crunching sounds and feel resistance, this is the silicon wafer you are cutting through. 

The squares will have sharp edges until cleaned up - take care while handling them.
