Has anybody heard of a shield to shield the cutter from flying leads during hand cutting of through hole components. If it collected the leads also that would be helpful. I am thinking of plexiglass or something that the board could be placed under.

I have a trace about 0.060' wide and I need to place a chip resister on it. * What is the best tool to use to cut the trace without slipping and scratching other traces or masking around it? I have used X-Acto #11,#16,#24 blades without success.

I've been looking at buying a trace repair kit. The one I'm looking at includes some nifty little bits for a dremel or whatever. What I was wondering is, if someone is going to cut traces with a dremel, would you reccommend getting the stand for it

Check out http://www.circuittechctr.com/index.htm They have kits and training for making pcb mods. And no, I don't work for them. But they have saved my butt once or twice with handy repairs for damaged pcb's. Good luck!

I would shy away from a Dremel. They are great for a hobby, but produce too much spin off at the tip to be reliable. A micro-drill is the appropriate tool. The cheap way out would be tweezers scissors. That is if you can get under the trace.

Assuming, you have nothing on the other board side, I would drill a hole through the trace and board with a step drill and a drill press. If you adjust the depth control carefully the wider step of the drill scratches the surfaces of the trace to mak

First, you're correct. Trace repair and rework is not for the faint of heart or novices. Second, our "girls" prefer a dental drill type tool [Dremel Flexshaft], rather than the clumsy Dremel type from Wal-Mart. They also like a vice with a unversa

At a previous employer we used a pneumatic dental type drill with nice results. The 1/4" hose is much more flexible than a flex drive cable, there's no motor module on the work surface, and the foot pedal for the air a little more elegant than two-h
