Anyone have any experience or have colleagues who have experience using the Chinese-made reflow soldering ovens such as those being sold on the evil auction place? The one I've looked at is item number:262955348183 (Model T962).
My eyes have become the major challenge to producing the one- or two-off projects, since many of the parts that are available today are only made in SMD packages. I realize that placing them onto the board still remains a challenge, but at least with a proper oven, I won't have to hold a soldering iron steady enough to build the boards.
This model seems to be big enough to handle all the boards that I want to make, so that is a plus. Just wondering if this model produces good boards with no unsoldered areas, damaged components, etc. If it can consistently produce good boards, I'll take a chance on one of them. Reading the Chinglish instructions is scary enough , but maybe I can figure it out well enough to make it work.
Hope someone can give good advice
