An Android reflow controller that anyone can build

An Android reflow controller that anyone can build

Andy Brown published a new build, an Android reflow controller:

 The only surface mount device on this PCB is the MAX31855 and it has a low number of generously spaced pins. I eschewed my hot air gun, previous reflow oven and hot plate in favour of a plain old iron and the tack-soldering method because I wanted to show how easy it is to assemble this PCB and you can see me soldering the MAX31855 in the video that accompanies this article. No laughing at the back please; it’s hard to solder from behind a video camera!

Project info at Andy’s blog.

Check out the video after the break.
