Bus Pirate v4.0c build in a toaster oven

Drjeseuss shares his Bus Pirate v4.0c PCB build using a toaster oven to reflow the solderpaste:

All in all, this project was a success! The process worked well enough to repeat and the reflow toaster puts an end to my fears of QFN and BGA chips. It looks like I’ll be moving forward on the reflow controller project now that I’ve seen the results of an off the shelf kitchen toaster. I’ll also have a BPv4 to add to my toolbox along side my OLS. Pretty sweet for a free PCB!

You can get a Bus Pirate v4 for $40, including worldwide shipping.
