ebay usually has tons. Or I can send you a few sheets. I might even include a bit of the gold stuff. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53724080/Protos/Z356_EOM_Timer/Z356_Top.JPG https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53724080/Protos/Z338_PCB.JPG https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53724080/Protos/D200_BB_4.JPG -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc picosecond timing laser drivers and controllers jlarkin att highlandtechnology dott com http://www.highlandtechnology.com
