In Topic: Baking fruit machine boards in the oven...

Indeed, every article I've read states that DIY reflow is a method of last resort for a board which is otherwise beyond redemption...

But seriously gas mark 8!! (do people still have gas ovens??)
That's around about 230 degrees centigrade which is enough to mess up a number of types of plastics, and goodness knows what else on a board.

People used to do with xbox360 boards.


With limited success I imagine, once they'd baked the moisture out of any electrolytic capacitors I would expect there to be plenty of problems stored up for the future.

Dont fancy a massive Toblerone for £57 then


Why do they sell massive Toblerones in airports?

They won't let you on a plane with blunt nail scissors, but they're happy to sell you spiky, heavy chocolate in the rough shape of a club right there in the airport?

Oh no is it this Friday? I managed to book an optician appointment again (same as I did a couple of years back).

Last time it was hell.
