Toaster Oven Modification for PCB Reflow



This is a video on a toaster oven modification for PCB reflow purposes. I got a toaster oven at Walmart for $20 and added a reflow controller called the Controleo from www.whizoo.com. For folks who don't know what reflowing is, you can read about it here. I wanted to  make some PCBs at home using SMD components, and decided to give this project a try.

The Controleo setup was pretty painless and inexpensive. If you do decide to do this modification, please do so at your own risk. AC voltages can bite you if handled improperly. Happy reflowing!!
