Turn your toaster oven into your own solder reflow factory shop using the Reflow Master Shield!!!

Paladin Enabling Technologies – Reflow Master


The Reflow Master Shield from Paladin Enabling Technologies is an Arduino shield that turns your normal toaster oven into a reflow oven. A reflow oven is used in the production of electronics to change solder paste from a paste form to a liquid form and lastly to a solid form. This results in all your components being soldered for you in one run.

But let me share with you why I’ve created the Reflow Master Shield and why you would want one.

In 2012 I created my first project and I wanted to upgrade the project but soon realized that I required surface mount devices or components (SMD) to be able to do so.

The industry standard these days are to use SMD to populate boards. As you will notice from some of the following commercial boards:

Yes we can still make use of through hole components but their SMD cousins are often more feature rich and comes in at a more affordable price. Component sizes are also reduced which enables you to create a smaller circuit board which once again saves you money.

These facts lead me to get hold of a reflow oven controller.

I looked to purchase a model but didn’t find a model that suited my needs and so I set out to create my own. The Reflow Master Shield is what I came up with.
