Solder Reflow Experiement

I've been working with SMT soldering for a while now, and up to this point I have been using a conventional iron to hand solder componenets to the board.  I have read about various reflow techniquies used in mass production and most of those use solderpaste or wave soldering techniques.  Wave soldering requires specialized equipment, so for my purposes this is inpractical. 

If I had a decent volume to assemble I could use a solderpaste/stencil technique and do my "pick and place" by hand.  However for the small 1 off type projects I had a thought.  An idea popped into my head on how I could do reflow soldering without dealing with messy solderpaste or special (expensive) equipment.  I decided to test this idea out,  the video below is the results of this test, enjoy.

Thanks for watching.
