In this episode of DIY or Buy we will be having a look at reflow soldering plates. I am familiar with hand soldering, hot air reflow soldering and oven reflow soldering and I was looking for a better technique that is easy to pull off and not as bulky as an oven. That is when I found out about reflow plates. So I bought myself one for testing and around the same time a viewer of mine reached out with a DIY solution. So in this video I will test both versions and ultimately tell you whether hot plate soldering is awesome and whether you should DIY one or simply buy one! Let’s get started!
