Pro quality SMT/SMD assembly at home Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
Assemble your own professional quality surface mount printed circuit boards at home! Controleo3 converts a countertop toaster oven or convection oven into a fully programmable solder reflow system. This kit fixes all the problems reviewers identify in low cost ovens available online so you can homebrew SMD/SMT designs with confidence.

Because Controleo3 can be used with many different oven models, the build manual does not include step-by-step instructions with dimension, but the copious photographs and accompanying text suffice. No need to be anxious about critical dimensions: just be sure the door will clear THE SCREWS that hold the servo arm when locating the controller on the oven. A DIY amateur with modest hand tool experience can perform the conversion, the rewiring procedure is easy to follow and the developer responds to email questions within a day.

The software includes a checkout run that produces a figure of merit on your conversion so you can identify and fix any problems. The oven has worked flawlessly for me on a series of small boards.
