Here's my modest bench setup.  I built the table and movable shelves myself.

Nice setup. You did a great job on the carpentry!  Also those Dell monitors are quite nice!

I was wondering if anyone had a portable rack for setting up test equipment...I'd love to be able to roll out my test equipment when I needed it and have a nice clean work desk otherwise. (small 1br apartment).

I haven't tried it, but sounds like a great solution for compact spaces. Some of the labs shown here have rolling shelf units. You can probably use one or more of the same.

What a kitchen table should really be used for.

I'm tempted to take a snap of my kitchen, but it's embarrassingly bachelor... :palm: :palm:

The latest iteration of my bench. I rearranged a bunch of stuff for better workflow/ease of access.  :-/O

Nice layout.  I assume the shelving was custom?  I also like the under shelf mounting.  Where do you keep your soldering equipment?

Here is my lab. It's the spare bedroom. I mainly work on electronic boards for work. The equipment is used on oil&gas platforms in the Gulf of Mexico (fog horns and nav-aid lights)

Thanks! The entire bench was scratch built by me. See the overall view below. Tools and soldering equipment are kept in the 3 drawers on the right when not in use. The bench is dual use and normally my laptop resides in that space when not working on a project. The bench is in my living room so I try to keep it neat. And I can close the upper louver doors for an even neater appearance but I rarely do.

The custom shelf for "single blue folder" is very cool. It must be a pretty important folder to get its own shelf! So what's in the folder?

It's basically my "Operating Manual". I'm a stickler for up to date and accurate documentation. All the important stuff in one manual. Contents page attached.

Wow, I never thought that the mysterious blue book would generate so much interest.

It is basically a summary document and a quick reference and while it does provide a lot of detail (It's nearly full) it also gives locations for additional information. For example...

Under Test Equipment: The Tek 2465 scope. A summary of it's status (Functional, non-functional, last calibration date, etc). A detail listing of repairs done and dates. A picture of the scope. The location of the operator/service manuals. Which in this case are PDF files so it lists the computer folder which contains the documents. (Backed up of course!)

Under Electronic Projects: These are projects built by me either my own design or from other sources. A basic description of what it does and how it operates. A schematic. A picture of the device. And the location of any additional reference material.   

That's just 2 examples but I think it gives you an idea of what that blue book contains.

I do something similar with a Wiki running on my internal Webserver.
-> List of all devices, purchase date, garantie, firmware version, firmware update links, calibration status/date, additional infos ...

Not ergonomically at the right working height either…

Nah, you wouldn't want it any higher, or deeper, or you can't reach it from sitting on the ground.

It's a convenient setup for hanging leads and cables on though....
