    8 If you want to make a lot of PCBs using surface mount technique, reflowing is safer and easier way instead of hand soldering.
    9 But, to do that you will need to print paste on the pads.
    10 Then, we introduce our method to prepare solder stencils in-house.
     6If you want to assemble 3 or more PCBs using surface mount parts, reflow soldering is safer and easier way instead of hand soldering.
     7However, reflow soldering requires solder stencils to print solder paste on the PCB pads.
     8Generally, solder stencils are made of stainless steel foil and somewhat expensive.

     10We introduce our method to prepare solder stencils in-house.
    1111This method is a low cost technique you can do yourself.
