Thanks again for the good work,

Im actually doing that now! lol. I have a friend with a cnc vinyl cutter that I use to make my own stencils out of mylar film. Its great and free. Then pop it into the taster oven in the garage to melt the solder and done with the smd stuff.

If there is enough interest, I will have my friend with the pick and place machines build them in runs.
