Re: Re: Had fun with Hershey fonts...
Even commercially... a THT component costs 3 times an SMD one in assembly: SMD is chip shooted, most THT are inserted at hand, nowadays... almost nobody still has a THT inserting machine!
Here in Brazil there are still a *lot* of such inserting machines...
they come with 5 fingers on each side :)
For small production (10pc/month) it is quite reasonable.
