    They come from participation, when you pass so many "messages" get a number of trophy points, There may be other factors, too.

    Will the toaster oven heat steel to 1500F?
    If not, then I'll pass.

    Trophy points are kinda like trophy wives. They really ain't good for much other than flaunting.

    I am in the (usually slow) process of attempting to get a numerically accurate answer to the original question. In the meantime, most of the replies are logically if not numerically correct. Except that you aren't going to get a new toaster oven regardless of how many Trophy Points you manage to accumulate. :cool:

    An older thread that I thought should be resurrected for entertainment value! And maybe I will get some trophy points in the process.

    Old thread but since it wasn't answered, trophy points are awarded based on how many likes you get. http://www.hobby-machinist.com/help/trophies

    Don't know what happens after 30 trophy points as that page doesn't say. I got me a toaster oven but it was just a cheap $20 oven, cheap but still works, hope it doesn't catch on fire. I'm hoping for the panini press. ;)

    I was hoping for a new pizza cooker this time. Although a 3MT dead center would also be nice.

    No use for participation points at present other than acknowledgement.
