Default Solder mask solvent?

Took me a while to even figure out what question to ask! I was seaching for 'pcb paint remover' ...

You know how you always want to tap into a trace at halfway or get at the ground plane so you can solder a SM bypass cap to a digital part's legs ...

Well the mechanical method seems so ... mechanical! That scratching or grinding must be creating a mountain range at the microscopic level ...

Surely there's a better way! Surely there's an easier way! Surely there's some exotic chemical out there that eats through solder mask and stops at the copper and ... preps it perfectly for soldering!

Stop calling me Shirley!

I found this, Soldermask Stripper 1380:

I did a quick search at digikey and mouser but nothing popped up.

Are there others?

It's not about what you can BUY...It's about what you can BUILD!
