    Hi everyone!

    I am having a tough time removing bridges neatly from the largest of the 3 chips on the board. I have managed to get the ite and the tvp on successfully (I think) but am making a big mess of the big cyclone.

    Would you guys recommend purchasing a plastic stencil, to help get the amount of solder paste on the board correct? I have a hot air gun, and I am just thinking my current technique of squeezing out a bit of paste and then dragging it around the pins is just too messy and not precise enough. This could be made a lot easier with a stencil I believe.

    It looks like you guys provide 3 stencil files : https://www.niksula.hut.fi/~mhiienka/ossc/diy-v1.5/stencil/ but I have never ordered one of these before. Where would you guys order it from, and which file am I supposed to offer the service?
