Bob is looking at that lava lamp like he wishes it was a bong. That's what I thought it was for a second. :icon_mrgreen:

This before I actually really used it some months ago. Or stained the top with paint and bits and pieces.

I bought this standard bench that came broken and missing the drawers. @#$% it I decided. It works. Glued the broken plywood for the table top and bottom. The drawers would have been nice but left little room for my legs to sit up against the table.

Maybe another pic soon. With some nice hardware pRon spread out.  I have a nice vice on the right and a decent stool now, too.

I actually do the soldering up in the living room because there's a big TV and I'm single.

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.

Looks like a cat knocked your parts drawers over. I hope you had a chance to drink the precious contents of that glass before the accident.  ;D

Maybe that's how it got knocked over. Drunken pedal building....Not even once :icon_mrgreen:

@Darron    How do you like your dremel stylus? I can't live without mine.

it was my own fault. can't blame the cats this time.

the absinthe bottle just has water in it and the glass was empty. no real disaster. i found some stuff in the process and it's good to have a reorder.





the dremel stylus is pretty cool! i mostly jut use it for engraving or for wire brushing for that 3d effect. the battery isn't massive and last just long enough to do a few which is when i'd need a break anyway.

the dremel in the drill press setup is too much of a pain to take out to use for anything else so that's all it does. i'd rather recommend somebody bought a tiny REAL drill press for the price instead of this silly plastic work-around.




the orange/grey Black and Decker battery screw driver is a very cool little ting too. they were on sale for $30! gyro operated.

I stabbed myself with the soldering iron last week.  Not drunk.  At all.  Honest.  No, really.

I've tried to identify some of the objects in duck's photo. The name on the door is "Via Eastern", which appears to be a telegraph company.

Can anyone else identify more objects?

Both.  Can you believe I was swapping bits in the middle of a session?  Stabbed with the "recently cold" bit.  2.3mm of (dirty) getting-warm metal into my left thumb joint.

I thought I could see a couple of Millennium-2 boards, but now I think that the whole desk is an early protoype of this:

Edit:  "Burst Box".  LOL!   :D

put a big circle around the geezer in the middle and write "great grandfather" next to.

there is no burstbox shown. the other bloke has that, out of shot. you can tell from his shifty expression.

no stock tickers. shown in this photo are grgrdpa's first 2 designs for the head of "robbie the robot".

I was disappointed that I could find nothing more than via eastern. it sounds like part of something, probably all over the outside of the building.

That would be a window, not a door. Also, there is flux capacitor in plain view right there in the middle.

FooFighters123 has something to say about calling it a burst box...


Thereverend  matt bellamy doesn't have a burst box it's a kill switch. And it's not a BURST BOX  it's a circuit box with burst button...
