Smart Reflow Oven

I generally don't just post links on Bytecruft, but this is beautiful.

This is a reflow oven controller:


My oven controller is coming along, in between doing a lot of behind the scenes work on Anibit.com.

Reflow oven

I started a new project recently, a reflow oven. This time, I've started with the physical build, and the software side of it will lag behind. I've laser cut the case I designed in OpenSCAD, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results.

The case with the "human interface" components - a touch screen LCD a 1 watt speaker.

I have some projects in R&D for Anibit, and I'm going to need to whip up some PCB's. I need a reflow oven, and I'm going to recycle an old toaster-over. I was inspired by this project, which was in turn based on osPID. The touch-screen was something I've had lying around, waiting for a project.
