Re: Removing solder mask?
I asked my board vendor about anything that would remove the mask for
rework. never got a decent answer.
As a rule, all vias of 0.5mm drill size are masked as part of a design rule.
When necessary for rework, I've been scraping the mask from the via. Been
using a 1.5 flat blade jeweler's screwdriver held at a negative rake to
scrape the mask off. The blade has been filed to give a very slight burr on
the scraping side.
