Ahne [?] You say, "There are almost as many ways to be successful with this as there are ways to do it wrong." What do you believe are the successful and wrong was to go about cleaning stencils after the run is finished (or temporarily interrupted)

You can stop cleaning after a job when there is no more paste in the apertures. Under wiping should be done with a quality cloth and should leave no paste on the underside of the stencil (assures good contact on the next print and reduces chances of

Bryan: * Most of our stencils are made from stainless steel that is held by a aluminum frame, attached with epoxy with a fiber glass intermediary between the frame and the stencil. * We use stencils to print either glue [thermoset epoxy] or solder pa
