The Process of Stuffing Boards

It starts with un-packaging the parts from the supplier and placing them on a clipboard with double-sticky tape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, the Kapton Stencil is taped down to another clipboard. Old PC boards are used for registration. I get the stencils  made at http://ohararp.com/Stencils.html

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the paste I use. $<15 a syringe from http://www.zeph.com/ They also sell other solder supplies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To apply the paste I just use a plastic putty knife purchased from the local big-box store..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An alternate method to applying with a screen is to syringe directly. This can be accomplished with an air-powered materials dispenser readily available on ebay..
