FREE: EEVblog Lab Cleanout
« on: October 27, 2020, 09:21:39 am »
I need to clear out all sorts of stuff from the lab.

The mailbag bench with ESD mat, 2.1m x 0.9m
My old editing desk with side chase
Two filling cabinets
Large wide two draw wooden cabinet
1 x 5 shelf unit
Small form factor computers, I think all working, desktop carcases.
Lots of old gear and scrap boards and kicknacks.
Multiple audio power amps, supposed to be faulty in some way.
Some psu's for sale
NO new scopes or other gear for sale or giveaway, please don't ask.

MUST Pickup from Norwest by Thursday.
You can bags something by posting here.

Sorry as I not sure if I can ask the questions here or not, 1st  question is, is the psus are desk/lab psu or The pc psu? Also is this  blue calibrators are part of the items you want to sell or not?
Thanks

I'd be interested in the ESD mat (if it can be separated), I still don't have one.
Any audio hardware, such as the Behringer unit would be of interest also

ESD mat can be separated. There are a bunch of audio power amps of various kinds, mostly supposed to be faulty in some way.

Hello!
I'm an Electrical Engineering student in the Epping/Carlingford area, looking for some basic home lab equipment. How much would it be for a basic bench top psu? Would also appreciate a meter :)

I have an old 40V 3A bench psu Altronics kit. Not in great shape, but works. Yours if you want it.
I can find a meter for you.

Well, just got back from my trip to Dave's (stopped off for some shopping on the way home).

Helped Dave with taking a load down to his car and picked up a few odd bits as well as some "useful"  ::) stuff.  Nabbed 3 SFF computers and bought one thing.  I was kinda hoping my offer would be declined as I really didn't need another power supply  Yes, I know. I can hear you!  but he accepted it - I think, in part, because of the mad dash yesterday.  I think all my "guilt points" from that experience are well and truly used up.

Pics later - once I have worked out where to hide put all the stuff.

PS.  While Dave has done pretty well in cleaning out the lab that is soon not to be It didn't seem a whole lot different from when I arrived to when I left.

I was reminded of this: "The first 80% of a project takes 80% of the time and the last 20% takes the next 80% of the time."

Correctamundo.
Quite clear now though!
All the gear gets dumped tomorrow, one person there now taking some stuff but that's it I think.

Pics:

Some stuff:


Some scrap:


Some stationery:


    ^ ^ ^ ^ ^  These boxes are the ones Dave uses for the BM235 and carry the "No BullS**t Packaging" graphic I did for him.  Until today, I never had a physical example of one of my creations being used commercially - which is why I grabbed them.

The three boxes to the right are alcohol swabs.  There were 4, but I lost one somewhere between the lab and my car.  Backtracking my steps did not find it.

There is one thing I've thought about for a long time - and that is having a "feature wall" or something "arty" using PCBs, possibly depopulated - and backlit....

... and that box of cards from the ultrasound machine I left behind is still buzzing around the back of my mind.

Is it possible to send one blue calibrator by mail to Russia? Interesting as a souvenir. :)
