The Systronic machine uses spray technology. I recommend that you read the following thread regarding the potential damage caused by spray stencil cleaners. http://www.smtnet.com//forums/index.cfm?fuseaction=view_thread&CFApp=1&Thread_ID=10557Mess

I agree with Steve on this. If you just order the stencil you would probably save more money than have to fix the boards if you were to do it manually. Most stencil houses for new accounts will let you get a free sample screen as an evaluation.

I've cut component patterns out of old stencils. Not as good as buying a new mini stencil but still it worked. I guess you can't buy those pre-pasted boards? I've never tried them but they look interesting.

Probably because you are using baords, as you quoted above. "Your DEK could read non-blackened fids? Wow, you must have bought them from Superman. Or did you just teach baord pads and stencil openings?" In my DEKs, we use the new fangled "Boards"
