  • Tutorial - Making Your Own Solder Paste Stencils | about a year ago

    I have been using a technique similar to this for a few years now with a Roland GX-24. My stencle choice is a bit different though. I have tried many different things and found the best results with overhead film transparency film from staples. These are 8x10 clear sheets about 5 mils thick. This results in an almost perfect amount of paste on the pads. To hold the sheets, I have found using the Cri-Cut cutting mats work PERFECT!

    These are tacky and hold the film down. Once your done cutting like talked about above, you just tape one edge down and align the boards.

    You can fit multiple designs on one sheet, but for $1 each at the Staples print center or you can buy a whole box in the store for something like $50 for 100 or something.

    Hope this helps somebody else out!
