That's silly. Just buy a cheap hot air system. I got one of these with nine different nozzles for under $150 including shipping, and build my own PCB preheater to speed-up work:

I'm surprised that the makers of SmartBoard electronic whiteboards haven't sent their lawyers after them to change that awful name.

We solder our smt (including small BGAs ) in a toaster oven! Its cheap, and works a treat. All you need is a cheap thermocouple meter to go with it.

Can also be done on a WalMart hotplate with excellent results.
