I have yet to find any T962A at a reasonable price. I am seeing the T962 at about $200 usd and just bought one. I am wondering what mods are needed for it. I know it is only 800 watts compared to the 1300 watt T962A but besides being smaller and drawing less power what has to be done to them in the way of mods? I understand the Firmware flash and suspect the masking tape but beyond that what should be done to the T962's?Thank you.
You mention using more modern and cheap AD converters like the MAX31855 or MAX6675 but do not say if any changes have to be made to the firmware or what those changes are.Also you show a parts list with a few model/part numbers but not what distributor you got those parts. Where did you buy the parts.Is a Arduino version still in the works?Thank you.
"But if you only occasionally reflow solder, you might want to go with a toaster route. However I personally have seen pretty bad result from a hacked toaster around me and just don't think it's worth the hassle"That is part of the reason I was looking at this Instructable. Google is not much help searching for DIY Toaster reflow oven and the few it returns are very very old. OSHPark has a few shared boards but it is hard to find the actual project for the board and the BOM for them and when I do find the project page I find as you mentioned that the hack is a waste of money. I have looked for email forums on the subject but have not found any yet. I am tempted to go with the Controleo3 but not sure if I need the basic $109 package, the $249 package, or the $299 package and …

I am tempted to go with the Controleo3 but not sure if I need the basic $109 package, the $249 package, or the $299 package and which oven do I get? Conventional? Or Convection? I was tempted to go with the T962 and someone on one list had an ebay link to one for buy now at $129 but would not ship to USA.
Where do you find the T962 or T962A at a reasonable price? I am seeing them at $300 usd and up. I am wondering if getting the Controleo3 controller and a kitchen toaster oven would be just as good since the T962 and T962A have not had the best reputation.

Did you get this ported to ATMega328P? I would be very interested in that. If so, did you also modify the pc board to accept the 328? I have ATMega328P's in 28 pin dip but not the ATMega32u4 you used.

How do you manually draw/add traces and more pads? How do I create a library for/of lines and pads in case I want to add connections for parts that have a different footprint or lead spacing?Thank you.
I tried your methods but they did not work on the LED's I have in front of me. They are new. I looked at lead length...but there are no leads. I looked for a flat spot but these did not have any that I could see (at least without a microscope). Oh, did I mention that they are surface mount...and the ebay vendor threw all (5 different colors) in one envelope unlabeled. Now I have to figure out what color each tape is! I tried to look at them with a 3x magnifying glass but it was not quite strong enough. With wire lead led's I can stick them in my tester but these won't fit and I do not have an smt adapter to test them.
Blank ATMega328's will require that the bootloader be loaded first as they do not come with that preprogrammed...unless you buy them that way. Blank ATMega328's are about $2 each but if they have the bootloader preloaded they are about $4 each.

I went to http://www.wch.cn/download/CH341SER_ZIP.htmlfor the driver download as you suggested but I see no download link for any of the files and I do not read or speak Chinese. Do you have links to the driver downloads that are not html pages?
Why can't you use the LNA that came with the dish?
What is a concert Mag? Should that be a concrete mag?Do I use a weed burner to burn the concrete or will a torch work?What are brussels of a broom? Do you mean bristles?You also do not mention how to determine how many sacks of concrete mix you need or what volume of concrete you ultimately need for the project.Most of the bags of concrete mix I have bought are 1/2 cubic foot but they seem to hide that number and make you really look for it. I was also told that one cubic yard of concrete at a 2x4 (3.5 inches tall) depth is needed for each 81 square feet of area as in a patio.How should the concrete be cured? Wet burlap covering for a week? Or perhaps spray on sealer? If sealer, what is it called and where do you get it? Or do nothing for curing?

Is there a solution? I have not run into this problem with other Instructables PDF's, at least not yet. How do they get created? How do we/I contact Instructables and get someone to actually look at the problem?

I am trying to print the pdf but am unable to print pages 7 and 8. Even in the Adobe (Pro) it starts the picture in step 7 and then shows items 1 through 62 as undefined. Again this is either printing or viewing in the pdf.
