Hi Tim
PACE Inc. has been making solder stations and circuit repair kits for longer then I've been in electronics. Pace Direct - Product Home

The thing is - it is expensive gear and the parts are expensive too.
But then I was trained to solder to NASA spec's and repairing PWB's to those standards is hard to do.

These guys sell some of the circuit repair kits - but with out the training and right gear getting good results is a real shot in the dark
Basic Cir-Kit - Stanley Supply & Services

For low power circuits using the small wire that comes with wire wrap kits works well - we used it all the time for repairs and circuit changes.

Can you post a photo of the damaged trace?

Is there a reason that you don't want to use wire or desoldering braid?

Is the fiberglass burned to a point where it's conductive?
