Step 3 - Applying Solder paste onto the PCB

Tools Spreader, Stencil
Needed Skills
Time circa 15 minutes

With the created stencil it is possible to apply solder onto the whole PCB in a few steps.

Fix the previously prepared stencil on the PCB with adhesive tape so it cannot shift out of place. Apply some solder on top the stencil. Finally spread the solder evenly onto the PCB so every solder joint is coated with a good amount of solder. On the same time try not to apply too much solder so solder bridges can be avoided as much as possible.
