AND you have an antistatic mat
OCD is a strange animal... My work bench looks like a grenade wrapped in 20 spools of solder was tossed at it, but I just put some tater-tots in the oven for my kids and my wife shook her head at my arrangement... They looked like little sailors, soldiers and rowlocks (uncle was a mason) in alternating rows.
"What?" I say " if there is an even amount of space (+/- 1/8" tolerance ) between each tot, they are more evenly baked"...
So,it's not just me,eh? Excellent.....
This is my work room, it's in the storage room but beats in the garage.
Small parts bin in the room:
Tube parts and excess capacitors etc. in the garage:
Don't have a lot of equipment and don't have room for more equipment. Have to cycle test equipment depending on the work I do. I have the Quant Asylum analyzer ( like a spectrum analyzer) inside the draw to the left of the first picture to run THD test. It display on the laptop.
Alan0354: Love your shop!
Hi Alan- Haha, I use a wooden tv tray like that for my laptop. For not having much equipment, you have two rooms for it all. I moved all my stuff outside to the garage! Dan
That's one thing I don't want to, move to the garage. I rather have a very small place but at least inside the house.
Big boss is not happy about it. But I really have no room in the garage either. Unlike a lot of people, we park both our cars in the garage. I have two heavy kicking bag hanging in the garage, I really don't have room either.
My metal shop is in the garage. Grabbing the handles right now would be like Flick licking the flagpole.
I hate to sound like I am advertising. I really like the 6 drawers that is in the picture. It is small, perfect for small stuffs. I have hand tools in the top drawer, then soldering tips, solder, anything to do with soldering in the second. I have my Quant Asylum distortion analyzer in the third, then one for crimper, metal cutter and other big tools. I still have the other ones uncommitted. It is useful in the sense it's small, it's almost like a big parts bin. It's not expensive also........You know, I born cheap, other than soldering irons, I am cheap on everything else. But I would not think twice to buy another one if there's a need for it.
Hope you feel better soon!
Too funny! That might have to be my new signature "I look at the inside of a flashlight and I get perplexed."
I bought one of these for my garage so I could work in the winter:
You can buy one that connects to the LPG tank that you use on your backyard gas grille.
Depending on how cold it was, I had to fire it up and wait 30 minutes or so. It would get toasty warm- for a little while.
LOL.. I wish I could say that I wasn't kidding.... I have a '50's black and white Philips television set that I'd like to get running again however techs around these parts are like unicorns or a real cyclops..... RARE... uggg
I'm with you. Half the time I'm on this forum I feel like I'm reading about turbo encabulators.
The best video ever on complex engineering......
Maybe we need a new thread: "Understanding your Turbo-Encabulator"
Looks like a place where work gets done...
I survived the 70's. I'm pretty evenly baked.
This setup makes sense to me. I'm planning on extending my bench so I can place my test equipment on shelves like this.
Thanks for posting this!
Your Bench will never be big enough.
No matter how I extend mine, I always need more!
