Yeah the new reflow oven will need extensive and obvious labeling.

So that design I linked to looks doable? I have really no idea.

Also about half the people I tell this to advocate using something
other than an oven for solder paste surface mounting. The focal heat
gun thing and hot plates are both apparently popular. Do those seem
like useful additional tools but not a replacement for a reflow oven?
