SMD Reflow Video

March 7, 2011

This is an older video I made explaining how to reflow solder using a toaster oven and dispensing tips.

A few things I do differently now:

 

  • I know my toaster oven is slow, so rather than using a thermocouple, I just pop it in at 400F for 4 minutes, then jack it up to 450F and wait for the solder to turn shiny. This is a great help with tiny boards.
  • Less paste is better. You can always add more after the fact.

  1. Great video…. Personally I like to use an XPM 820 2+ Vitronics Reflow oven…. However if you dont have 40K for a new one sitting around that works also :)
