Working with smd parts ..
At least one UK magazine has published a reflow project based on a pizza oven.

It has a micro to manage pre-heat, reflow and cooling stages.

You have to be pretty careful if you try to do it manually.

When I did the mechanical segment of my college course, they had like melting temperature calibrated metal pyramids that you put in a heat treating kiln - you watch through the window for when the tip melts and droops.

Not sure if you can still get those, but you could lay a length of the right composition solder across a couple of trestles and cut the power when it melts.

Kind of funny that this technology is used to make electronics. The ceramics industry always used these "cones" and when the started to melt, they shut down the kiln - their holy grail was an electronic control - no even the electronics industry could find a solution. Interesting...
