Hey all, Nate here, made a nice little reflow oven to help me in the construction of surface mount boards. Got a video explaining it all here: PCBs and Control Boards for sale here: viewtopic.php?f=

Hello friends, I built a garage-made* SMT reflow oven in 2003, used a simple glass NTC as temperature sensor.   (*) we don't do those things inside "home", it is really made in the only place wife a

Just an update on this since I have not posted in a awhile. I did a second version of my reflow oven with an IR oven and a solid state relay. With this, I could ideally implement a better profile. You

Looking good Nate. What you did there with C# is what I had in mind with our own project here too ( loosely based off your original idea).

Best of luck with your project! Always cool to see more reflow ovens =D  

They help alot for building stuff and once you get good with them, they save quite abit of time. Here was a recent school project that I did with LQFPs, QFNs, 0603s, and double sided. Wasn't too bad with the reflow oven. 




I'd recommend an IR oven if your still looking at ovens.

Nate, yeah project exactly like that ( and possibly with BGA too ), is why we want a reflow oven. I have no idea how long wulfman had been looking into convection oven / reflow oven conversions, but shortly after one of our talks, the project came alive then.


Nearly any project now days that is SBC in nature will definitely need a reflow oven. Which is where a lot of my own personal interests lay. That school project of yours there looks very intriguing by the way lol :smile: If you wrote up a white paper on it, I would be very interested in reading it.

Hi Nate I'm interested in building your reflow oven circuit and when I try get the project files, the download link doesn't work. So I was wandering if you could re-upload the files.

Hey, looks like all old links at one point in time were all killed. I updated the links. The first post should hopefully have all the info you need to get started. Let me know if anything is missing.
