my chair is in between two desks and I swivel back and forth between the computer and the workbench



Those tables look very similar to the one I recently picked up from Ikea.

Wery good walue at only 20 pounds in the UK! ;)

i'm looking at something very similar, but the longer one with the curve at the end. are they sturdy?

Not sure about the curved version, but this one (Vika Curry range) is suprisingly sturdy for what it is. It would easily accommodate a tube amp head.

The legs are sold individually and the particle board top could always be replaced, so it could be 'modded' to suit!

First time I've had my own pedal space that wasn't my living room.
Set up right next to my bedroom (behind the sheet) in the basement. My dad made the desk for me as an early christmas present. Made out of old doors. Love it. Thinking of spraying the top with some sort of enamel, but I'm worried about fumes and lack of ventilation in the basement.
Taken with macbook camera unfortunately.




I forgot to flip this picture in photo booth. So it's backwards...Still gets the point across though.

My new workbench . Yes . I'm loving my 21$ SMD rework station .
And , i am having problems with my dremel 300 copy , it's chuck , there's no documentation anywhere that says where the collet can be removed / chuck adjusted , i've tried with the wrench , and it doesn't !

I don't remember offhand what model my Dremel is, but it has a little button near the business end, you press and hold the button to lock the shaft into place, which then allows you to get a wrench on the part of the shaft that releases the collet/chuck/whatever.  Hope you can get that figured out.

I tried it , pressing it while turning clockwise/anti-clockwise , the collet doesn't loosen :(

Sharing a make/model number/series might help others to solve the problem with you  ;)

Perhaps a link to the manufacturer

*coughcough*  I bought this when i was in china so you expect , no website , even googling offers no clarity on it .
But all i know is that it has "Collect chuck diameter 3mm" .

this is a  treat . i think am going to post up , i really am new to this ,(bread board only) but i just set up an area and i want to share . its really lame compared to most of these . hats off on all the hard work / organization . BUT , now i want a drill press , tool organizer , spools of color-y wire  , scopes , signal generators , lighted magnifier , and a CAT .

i did make some orders , enough to do 10 pedals , it has been VERY moving so slow . waiting on futurelec , re-ordering , major distractions / responsibilities popped up  . now the holidays , soon . when i was 17 i actually PRE-ordered the craig anderton "projects" book before it first came out , i also subscribed to Polyphony then EM . i did the do the gemini amp in 85 (?)  , then the ring mod in 92 , but have never done my "own" pedal . .... i REALLY am ready to go !

thanks so much for all the work , and sharing of hard earned info . THIS is what the net is all about , a shining example of co-operation , a testament to the good side of the human spirit , you should feel very proud of yourselves ( and your workspaces ) !

happy holidays , Pt2 .
im learning , we'll thats what i keep telling myself

UPDATE : anyway , thanks for your concern and "help" .
I figured out to look at what happened to the shaft lock , it got damaged .
So no wonder i couldn't lock it in place and turn counter clockwise .
So i decided i let a spanner lock the shaft in place and turn counter clockwise and finally the nut came out !  :icon_mrgreen:
