Removing 0 ohm jumper bridges on PROTO baseboard


I have a question about removing the 0 ohm jumper bridges on the PROTO baseboard.

In my situation, the board does not have 0hm resistors as I have seen on different pictures on Internet. Instead, it seems to have a plain bridge made of tin connecting the relevant points. The problem is that removing  the tin does not break the electrical conductivity of the relevant points as it seems there is a copper path below the tin.

How can I remove this jumper bridges in order to break the electrical conductivity among the external pins and the internal board?

I'm sorry I don't have 30 karma points to be able to upload a picture.

Hi Rafael,

You can cut the connection between the internal signals and the outside connectors by cutting the bridge using a stanley knife/box cutter. A small hobby scalpel or dremel blade is another option.
