The newest print offering from the folks at Raspberry Pi, based in England, is HackSpace magazine, billed as the "monthly magazine for the modern maker." The current issue, 11, focuses on best maker hardware and features a great review of our Bantam Tools Desktop PCB Milling Machine by Hackster's Alex Glow.

Alex's review of the Bantam Tools Desktop PCB Milling Machine appears on page 36 of Issue 11 and begins:

If you need tight turnaround time, you have a few choices: etch away copper with corrosive chemicals, draw or paint your circuit with conductive ink, pay exorbitant fees for rush service, or mill your own. Bantam’s offering fits neatly on a desk and has an approachable getting-started process, which is friendly to first-timers.
You can read the full review online. Each issue is available for purchase in print format or freely downloadable as a PDF.  

We also love that Alex concludes with a shoutout to our Instagram page: 

If you’re planning to get creative, I highly recommend Bantam’s Instagram for beautiful inspiration beyond basic PCBs.

Thank you, Alex and HackSpace!
