  • I have been using a cheap $29.00 Toastmaster toaster oven with pretty good luck on a fairly complex 6x5 board. It did take some practice and I destroyed a few parts until I figure out the system. I finally settled on this approach. 1) preheat the oven alone to 350F for at least 5 minutes. 2) Put the board in and let it preheat at 350 for 60 seconds. 3) crank to max temp, and let the reflow happen. The board should be done in less than 2:30 total oven time. The preheating steps are very important. If you just let the heaters heat the board from room temp, the components heat unevenly.

No public wish lists :(
