No! BOOOOO!


Love that retro photo. Had me going for a sec.

This is why all of my drawer units (I'm up to 9 at the moment - tall ones, too) are screwed to the wall!  I think I'd just give up and buy new stuff.  Which I can't afford.

so, while this is not MY workbench, it is still quite interesting, I think.
...
shown is my great-grandfather at his workbench, at the Low Head Cable Station, Tasmania, circa 1890.
he has just posted a qustion as to when Tesla might be going to invent radio, and is hoping for a reply from R.G.Keene. whilst he waits, he thinks about  the price of copper.
The same here... not my workbench, but my grand father is still 98 and kicking! He was the first to make a TV broadcast signal in the Iberian peninsula (50's). In this video (in Portuguese) you can see his amateur radio paraphernalia. Taken from an interview of a news broadcast network in Portugal.



Very inspirational I think.

Inspirational indeed!  And just think of the evolution of technology that he's seen and been part of!

darron, did this ^ make a noise (it obviously would have), were you there to hear it, and what did it sound like? I bet it was good.
the circuit output is not the input. the reverse holds true for the circuit input.

you know when you drop something fiddly on the floor? know it's their but have to get down for the search. it's nothing like that. it's 1 million times louder and you can see stuff everywhere.

well, seeing the stuff is half the problem solved already. unless it's because it's really big, or there is a shitload of it.

I too am part of the "bench in front of the window" club:





Being by the window is great because I can point a box fan outwards when soldering, and I never breathe fumes.  Unfortunately, it may be too late for me though, because I can't seem to keep things serious for very long:



I did a quick cleanup for these pics, but it reaches this threshhold now and again:







I should note that since this is also my nightstand, I had to remove the condoms from the drawer prior to taking the pic.  :P

In times past, I had employed a magnificent Seven Dollar Table from a 2nd hand store:



These pics wouldn't be complete without my sexy Plano-top proto-board:

Man, you really are safe!  Most of use don't even bother with condoms when we're building stompboxes!   ;D

I always wear a condom when pedal building. It helps reduce the risk of STDs   (Solder transmitted diseases) :icon_mrgreen:

I'm sorry sir, we only have the regular ohms.

Here's my bench...
Taking a nap after all that playing with wires and resistors!

Humbrol! I'd recognize that tin anywhere. I've used that stuff for so long I'm reluctant to say how long....Nice kitty :icon_biggrin:

Can anyone spot the high-speed lead injector?  For when that pesky solder just won't flow. :icon_mrgreen:

LOL!  We have an air stripper (a pollution control device) at work and sometimes we have to "change out the nipples on the stripper". ;)

proof positive that you now don't know where anything is.
