SMD Reflow Video
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.
