    OK, my summer project to equip a home play lab is done, months of crawling around ebay and the internet.

    Let the playing begin :)

    Excellent. I've been putting a home workbench together too. It's really handy to not have to travel to school every time I want to fiddle with something.

    What is the black thing in front of the soldering station?

    Looks nice, but I think you need more space. Now it like a Swiss Army knife.

    I saw a program on Discovery a few months ago. It was a program from America, and they had a saying:"The only size, is oversize!"

    I think you need more "Lebensraum"

    I envy gadgets on the left side of the desk, though...

    Then I am working I must have some space for Doodling and calculations. It is essential. For that purpose nothing beats the old style dot matrix printer paper. Hard to get sadly

    Yes, a multi-tool, space was limited to an existing desk, but hell, we all know these things have a tendency to spread, maybe I'll get a small printer stand for the printer and free up real estate.

    The goal was to have something to play with at home so, like Zazoo I don't have to make the trek.

    I have taken to using a folded piece of paper for a mouse pad, if it wears out I replace it with another. It also makes a handy place to store notes. For times I have to play with algebra I break out the notepad.

    TBoy, that desk is unnatural, it is way too neat. You need to do something about that.

    One of my professors has a workstation in his office that is literally buried in electronic components and test equipment. He works in a small 1ftx1ft clearing on the bench. I think he's hoping it will someday serve as makeshift faraday cage.
    It drives the neat-freak in me crazy everytime I go to his office. :eek:

    Here's my desk.

    Here's my electronics work bench and my tool cart. All my electronic tes equipment is gone to calibration right now; usually you would see a pile of o-scopes on the right.

    Here's my "mechanical work bench" - aka "works in progress staging area"

    I would guess it has something to to with the danger sign on the wall...

    Besides, maybe he likes to solder stuff in his undies. :eek:

    Here's mine.

    I think there's a table under there somewhere...

    Let's play where's wally/waldo...

    Look for;

    two spoons
    a mini file
    a red LED
    a vice
    Antex soldering iron

    First person who finds all these things wins a prize!:D

    two spoons - next to glass bowl
    a mini file - don't know
    a red LED - on the blue soldering station
    a vice - lower middle left of image, on the edge of the table, next to the ruler
    Antex soldering iron - on top of the PC daughtercards, next to the CD roms, it's yellow
