I never used stencils to apply soldermasks before (Well, I also always milled my boards which limited the size of the smd components to a size that is still pretty easy to hand solder, so I'm very new to boards in this quality).
Since I use a TQFP Packaged ATTiny, I thought it would be a good idea to produce some stencils for the board.
My first thought was to mill them myself from some thin aluminium sheets, but I quickly realized that I dont have mills small enough and the only way to produce holes small enough would by to etch them or use a laser cutter. Since I do not own a laser cutter and have no idea if it is even possible to etch aluminium, I searched online for cheap and easy services.
I quickly found OSHStencils and was quite suprised from the fammiliar interface (well, exactly what you expect from the name :) ). I uploaded my *.brd file and ordered a set of stencils. Lets see how they turn out when they arrive.
