that it is! a plastic cup hot glued to carboard. I just stick the box to it with a bit of looped tape.

It might be time for me to have a little bit of a tidy:

Where did you get your drill press, and/or what brand/model is it?

Also, same question, but about the drawer orgainzers. Thanks!

canadian tire is the answer for both of them. local hardware store. drill press is a jobmate. I dont really care about brands though. I just got the cheapest one there was at $50. still working fine after 3 years (as it should). any decent sized hardware store or chain should have all of this.

I don't carry about brands either, just wanted to know who made it so I could compare prices.

I just ordered some more drawer orgainzers but I like the larger drawers on the bottom like yours have. Couldn't find any like that when I was looking. Thanks for the info.

Ah, yes ! Those old testing instruments are true workhorses... And abuse-resistant !

I also see that you have a similar "tube project chassis" as mine, but horizontal, wider, and probably with more features (and maybe a little onboard LV/HV supply).
Here's mine - but I should improve it...





A+!

My tube project chassis has been somewhat replaced with this, although this is more
of a tube tester than a project box.  with it, I can still model different circuits  with
any kind of twin triode noval or octal...

Just got this, 6" belt sander, nicknamed 'Dust Devil' - sanding enclosures is now quick and painless:

Make sure you get some kind of dust extraction on that Rick, you don't want shiny boxes and a dull mind.
Looks great, congratulations. Is it in the garden shed?

N.B.Just an old hoover should do the trick if you can find one with the right filters.

Extraction coming up! Of course I'm wearing a (halloween) mask. No it's not the garden shed, it's frequencycentral international headquarters fabrication annex.

Our belt/disc sander is easily the most used tool in our shop.  It probably sees more use than all the other stationary power tools put together.

It seems to be a kind of simulator, right ? Interesting... Which type of circuit can you model on it ? I mean : is it only the classic common cathode amp (with pots in plate, grid, cathode, coupling caps, audio modulation to measure gain, etc...) or any other like a phase splitter or a tremolo oscillator ? Can you couple several stages (hence the multiple sockets) ?

A+!
I apologize for my approximative english writing and understanding !

Could you share the schematic for your tube tester/project box? It looks like a good project for this winter...

I'd say, cleaning up that workbench looks like a good project for this winter ;D  ;)

I work here so it's technically a workbench.
