This Is my lab so far going to shrink it because space is needed for other things and I feel likes IRS not organized at all. Anyone have any designs for benches for a 10 x 10 area looked at others some are way too big and some are a tad small.

Haha I would never leave real guns out like that, they are airsoft guns and i work on them occasionally. The two guns you see were built from scratch, my prized possessions :)

Thanks for all the compliments :)

Well, quite an old photo - the Tek 7904A has been moved to a new home as its too big. The board on the desk is a Jim Williams design of an ultra-low-distortion oscillator. The 2465A is my scope of choice and the 2430A is being a bit temperamental at the moment (probably because the workshop is cold overnight). The other end of the workshop is the assembly & storage area - mostly Metcal MX-500 stuff, PSUs and racks of components, and there is a machining area with lathe/mill/press etc.

Hi all,

Here's some updated pics of my workshop (shed!). It's just about to get extended, I'm adding another 8ft and knocking through an internal door (to left of laptop). I need the space for storage. It'll be 24x9ft.

Current project = Arduino powered home built Segway.

Ian.

I'm a big fan of the Zephtronics equipment. I got the Solder paste dispenser, and the vacuum air pick. The solder paste dispenser gets a lot of use, perfect for prototyping and low level manufacturing, I really cant make a good looking board without it. The vacuum air pick doesn't get much use at all.

This one is my Baby.......Straight out of main land China, came with no instructions, very little support from the company. But works amazing, once you figure out how to use it. Saved my ass countless times. From an Idea to holding the PCB in your hand 2 hrs later, is a beautiful thing.

They are Raaco storage cabinets, and available in all sorts of sizes and drawer combos.
You can get them on Ebay.................but they are expensive!

http://au.element14.com/raaco/126762/cabinet-organiser-44compartment/dp/136709101

Those Raaco storage cabinets are on sale for $15.40!

Backordered but if you order now they'll probably get them in soon. They're in the latest catalogue advertised as 50% off.

UK: http://uk.farnell.com/raaco/126762/cabinet-organiser-44compartment/dp/1367091?Ntt=126762

Probably same everywhere Farnell/E14 operates part# 126762

I wish they sold in the USA  :'( .. or if they do I haven't found a source yet ! Shipping from UK or AU would be insane, and take forever!

You really don't need all of those scopes. I'll happily take a few off your hands.  ;)

I guess I just don't want to lug the gear all the way over 10 feet to the other side! So 2 of everything makes more sense! And the fact that I am a gearhead! HA HA

Hey guys,

I'm 17 years old so forgive my rather lackluster workspace, but this is what I'm working with.

A few meters, a scope, cheap function generator, soldering iron, desoldering iron, crapton of banana wires, test leads. That's about it.
