http://www.roboticsindia.com/entry.php/23-At-home-DIY-Printed-Circuit-Board-Fabrication
their are four things i needed

1. Ferric Chloride
2. Copper Clad Board
3. Laser Printer
4. Fine sand paper

let me know where can i get this things ferric chloride and copper clad board.Does ferric chloride is harmful to our body etc ?
Few years back when i did electronics circuits i used to get them from the pcb maker but that needed atleast 50 nos.I need only one now since i make for my purpose only.
I even dont have a laser printer do i should get a print from shop if so then what should i say.Is it possible in black and white laser printer

Regards
Suresh

Best is to get it made though a prototyping service ... try probots.

The process is messy and has too many variables for new comers , also certainly not recommend for people who dont wish to waste time.

thanks for the info i will get it from nearby pcb makers aor else from the probots.

presently i need three small stepper motors for a testing robot.I have saw on the online shops they sell for more price which is waste for me.I let you know the torque by tomorow.I am even interested in buying second hand motors please let me know where to get and what will be the price.
