    All the big chemical houses will sell you whatever grade and concentration you would like. EMD, JT Baker, Sigma Aldrich. Those are the 3 we use at work. Concentrated HCl is 12.1 N which is really strong, wear some gloves.

    I used to get it for totally not making explosives when I was a kid at pool supply stores or home depot during the summer.

    Depending on what concentration you need (I have no idea) this is the best way to get it.

    seconded! I would also suggest that you work outside or in a fume hood; when reacting, it usually fumes like crazy

    Why not use Ferric Chloride? It's called PCB Etchant and you get it at Radio Shack.

    Hydrochloric acid is cheaper and should be widely available as muriatic or pool acid in 23% solution. It think it costs under $10 per gallon, while Ferric Chloride for the same price you can get 16oz.

    This is what I found in the last couple of days.

    Ok I want to see some pics of your stuff after you etch it, want to see the difference in the etch, if there is any.

    Marko, I hope you don't mind if I hang my question on this thread: I have ferric chloride in powder form (Radioshack doesn't have it in Hawaii and they don't let the liquid stuff on planes...). Can anybody please tell me what the best ratio for mixing this with water is? How much powder per ounce?
    Thanks,

    Stefan
