A deluxe toaster oven upgrade for reflow. It’s not a new idea but this one has some nice features. The maker, Nabil, is quick to point out this is not a guide. Whenver working with heating elemements extreme care is required.
Of course, unless you have the exact oven (a Breville BOV450XL), you won’t want to duplicate the board, but it might give you some good ideas. The new board has a 2.8-inch capacitive LCD, an ESP32, and a few sensors and actuators.
The other addition was an exhaust fan, which is a good idea, considering what you put inside. There’s also Raspberry Pi and lots of new holes in the case. Apparently, the oven was able to produce boards even with basic software using proportional control.

Thanks for featuring my project Ben. I didn’t mention it in my blog, but I based my PCB off Adafruit’s breakout board for the 2.8 inch capacitive LCD. If anyone is interested I can clean it up and upload it.
