A few days ago we posted about using soda pop cans as a DIY solder paste stencil. Alistair made a similar stencil about a year ago. He documented the process on his blog, so check it out if you want to try soda pop solder paste stencils yourself.

I described a similar method to this on my blog last year.  My preferred etchant is a mix of Phosphoric and Hydrochloric acids.  I do toner transfer by printing on magazine paper and using a laminator (10 runs through it to really heat up the aluminium).

    Ah… good old 70’s style work. Phosphoric acid and toluene. Looks like a nice process.
