Turn it into a big place selling fried fish.

or maybe a storage place for billions and billions of batterizers feeding the sydney power grid.

Every floor except the top one, will be full of stacks and stacks of not really useful old oscilloscopes and broken down Sincair C5's in about 6 months.

Hi Dave,

Nice find, I think you should latch on the Federal Government initiative on ideas and innovation boom. Maybe concentrate on the electronics industry giving startups a place to get stuff off the ground.

Is the part about the building being vacant for the past 4 years true? It is really sad if that is true, because it is a really nice building.

Now you can finally carry on with your dream of selling solar roads, with batterizers in them for efficiency, of course!  :-DD
For real though, place looks insane :clap:

The rent is one thing,  but what about the coat of keeping the lights on?

When Altium released you a few years back, I hope you said as you left "You just wait, in a few years I'll be running thisnplace!"

Price for the 2nd floor only seems to be about AUD 385000, so the whole shebang probably goes for more than a million AUD.
Youtube must be paying well, or is it patreon?  ;D

I don't think Dave is going to turn on the lights or the heating.  He'll take it apart instead.

I PM'ed him, and he explained how he paid for it.

He managed to find 31+2=33 $15,000+extras Keysight scopes just lying in a dumpster nearby, and managed to either swap/barter them or sell them, to pay for the rent. That is why the Keysight prizes, haven't shipped yet.

Lower down in the PM, Dave says "please keep this secret". Oops...
Sorry Dave.

Nice one, Dave  :clap:

Though if I had the money, I'd probably move down there in a heartbeat.

(I knew it was too good to be true, but would have been nice had it been.)

Since it has a great view, convert part of the building into apartments? Use Kickstarted for funding the purchase and renovation?
Convert part of the building and move your family in?

Probably those 3$ Shenzhen Special multimeters he sells for 300$ a piece  :-DD

When the company I work for moved to a different location I looked into renting the old workshop area. Turns out with my budget I could basically just get a single parking spot in the garage. It was a cheap generic building in a shitty location. No wonder the vacancy rate of office/light industry buildings is so bad.

Hey Dave.,
You can make it into a hack (not a typo) space.
But I have feeling Dave is going to have "surprise expenses" this weekend and will have to immediately down-size again.

ps. A good one Dave. You had me "hook, line" but not sinker. When it is tooo good to be true, I smell bullshit.   ;)

Made an account to say you fooled me at least. Forgot about the time difference between here and Aus, only realised when reading this thread.

Don't turn it on, take it apart! (Joke or not, you can still make a teardown, only difference being that you don't need to put it back together)

Even though it sounded too good to be true i automatically believed it for a sec and thought you must be crazy thinking you could use all that area enough to make it pay off. Only after checking my calendar and realizing the time difference i was like:  :palm:

Good one!

Empty for 4 years? Hmm... what are the squatting laws like in Oz? We could have an international band of hippy electronics nerds shacking up in the place. Only rules of joining the commune are you bring lab gear, components, food, and your own sleeping bag. Yeah, some toiletries too. I can imagine all that nerd sweat stinking the place out.  :-DD

Thats building is huuuuuuge. Awesome Dave  :D


Can't you rent out a part to a local makerspace or some Electrical engineering students? Pays for part of the building and it's always handy to have them around.   :)


*Sighs, I should have looked at the calendar  :-X Press that nice big red button for me Dave  :-DD

And you just had to put a spoiler in the very first post instead of just deleting it, right?

Excellent score, Dave!

You should turn it into your very own chip fab. Then you wouldn't need to keep working on that chip printer.

If anyone's hungry, don't worry.
I will bring a plentiful supply of chips, bread(board), Banana(plugs), vitamins/minerals (such as copper(wire) and Iron(cores) ), and plenty of Raspberry flavoured PIes.

Did you have to pay extra for these guys? Or did they come with the building?  :-DD  I see there are plenty of folks in the virtual tour pics.

Shame - I thought the April fool this year would be Dave getting one of the first Batterizers off the production line for tear down and review.

Still, maybe you could do that next year
