Whoot I just designed my first 0603 component board, psu for my nixie's. DC/DC 5v(115mA)->185v(15mA), board measures 17x20mm which is 1/8 the size of my TH board!

Im sure it could be cleaner, I wish I could thicken the wires without making the round ends larger to make thick crisp ended lines i gotta run them overlapping each other with screws up the gcode.
Eagles autorouter is sometimes perfect and other times completely useless, this design no matter how I laid out the components it would not route more than %60...
Can a hobbyist plate through hole's? The chemical method would prolly be pretty hard but I would think somebody made a bobbin & pin design out in each side, press together, solder. Or do most people stick to soldering in a 22guage wire or TH resistor leg?
