I have my schematic and boards designed in Eagle and will need to order some in maybe a week or so, need a few changes. Any recommended places for low volume, maybe 10 or more depending on price? I've used ExpressPCB before but I don't want to redraw everything in their software.
Also, for surface mount chips, is solder mask essential or beneficial? For the solder paste, do you have a stencil made and then do something like silk screening but with solder paste? Or am I better off using an iron and solder wick to remove excess solder?
