I have not solved it, but face the same problem. There is a note
about using toaster ovens on www.pcbexpress.com but it does
not mention BGA. I doubt BGA would be successful using
this technique due to lack of good thermal control. I have
seen BGA installation and rework stations for less the 20K.
I've been hunting around for someone in my area (Houston, TX)
with such a device that can install my BGAs for me.
I am still several months out so I've not been pressing very
hard on the problem. Hope you find a solution, good luck.
