One of the etched boards was populated with components, sockets, and terminals. Soldering to the board was more difficult on holes which weren't drilled properly. This simply doesn't happen on well-produced boards. The level of automation in circuit board production ensures that off-center holes are an abnormality while producing a board like this makes it the norm.

While looking at the bottom of the board, it became apparent that the circuit was mirrored. Despite checking numerous times, I printed the circuit incorrectly. EasyEDA appears to print transferable images by default but I checked "MIRROR" which produced the wrong image. Revisions will have to be made.
