Here's my (dorm) workbench.

Haven't been able to build for a while, but I can still build vicariously through the pictures thread!

Should be reunited with my (real) workbench over winter break and hopefully have more to report then.

So here's my messy little cave today:



Those with sharper eyes will notice (among other things) not only a Dremel, drill bit set, Orange amp, Behringer usb audio interface, my belly, my thumb (part of one of them), three catalogues from different Swedish stores, a tabletop calculator and the IKEA shelf GORM but also the case of beer hidden away behind the amp.

I've salvaged about ten germanium diodes from the boards visible in that image.

And on a slightly more photogenic day the working area looks like this (since this picture was taken I've drank the coke, but the empty can is still visible in the picture above):

My Dremel currently takes 3.2mm bits, there's a chuck that lets it take from 0.5-3.2 mm. Got the Dremel, the stool and the amp for my 40'th birthday this year.

The beer is hidden because of the stuff that's currently stacked on top of it, it's as accessible as I need it  ;D

The beer is actually left over from my birthday, as is the charcoal on the shelf there (yellow bags behind the amp) and a few bags of chips (crisps or thins depending on where you live) stored in a paper bag just outside the picture. Stocked up on so much good stuff and people just didn't eat and drink as I thought they would.

Diamond cutting weels (@differo: 129 kr p Clas Ohlson) they'll make you wonder why they make the other kind.

ps. The holes in those discs are really the same, and correct, size. Just looks wierd in that image.

happy 40th...great prezzies...

i never have beer or food left over, me and my friends drink n eat  till we drop.... :icon_twisted:

so the largest it can handle is around 3.2mm then?....just wondering because i always drill small pilot holes in my enclosures before the big 7mm/10mm guns come out

for accuracy...

yeah,i'll have a look around for bits for it....cheers.... roll on xmas day when i can actually touch it....legally.. :icon_mrgreen:

p.s had a look at your site...nice...

@perrow - man tackar!:) I actually use that diamond disc a lot, to trip the PCBS to shorten pot lugs to even them out and what not, VERY usable. But I have only one, that came with some large accessory pack that I bought (p Jula) for like $15 and I'm so afraid that it will breake (literraly I cut like 50pcbs with it in no time).
@astronaut my dremel is like perrow's, it takes up to 3,2 mm but anything less then that is good too, so I can use cheapo hss mini drills too.

cool....cant wait to open it up...i have a small minicraft drill, which is ok, but i'll prefer the drill press....

what sort of drill bits do you guys use for the pcb's in the dremel...the 0.6mm ones i get tend to snap too easy..even when very careful...

I used to drill with 0.8 but nowadays I find that too big, much easier to use 0.7 for components and actually 0.9 for wires/pots as that's adjusted to the wire I use. Also, 0.8 snapped after A LOT of holes:) Drill press and off you go with drilling holes in pcbs. It takes me 20 minutes for 20 boards. repetition makes perfection:)
