XBox 360 repair. He's building his own pile of them for use at a video
As I recall he uses a frame to keep the board from warping, brings the
whole board up to a specific temperature slowly, then uses a shield around
other components and the hot air setup to extract the BGA chips. Cleans
them up, lays down new paste with a stencil then brings it up to
temperature again. I think that is the process.
Another friend jsut did the whole toaster oven setup for doing SMDs. I've
got a few uses for it in mind. He has a computer controller on it with a
thermocouple and all that. Arduino based controller I think.
