playing around with a quick design for a simple paster that uses common 100x150mm stencils. i have the bigger ones but i wanted something that is portable, easy to use and qucik to setup and teardown and slightly above the old tape it to a table/pcb setup.
the stencil fits exactly in the top indent then sellotape/magnets (still working it out) and then the pcb goes in the second indent. using the 4 channels to align the pcb or use the threaded holes and cams or a pcb “inverse” to place it.
for a quick test i slapped it on, one side of sellotape, put the pcb under pushed it into place and swiped it with gc10.
i removed the stencil three times and put it back in this photo because i didn’t get enough onto one of the chip sides and i dont find gc10 as good as the paste i normally use, i know i know! and the paste is still nice and crisp
it is meant to only work for the most common prototype pcb’s i make, otherwise i use the bigger stencil setup.
might do it as a vacuum setup too
