Clean Workbench!

For the first time since I moved in, I have the top of my (electronics) workbench clear. I still need to sort test gear and power and set up a soldering-iron control (I like a solid-state diode for little ones or a light bulb for the big ones, 100W and up), but it's a beginning. Who knows, I might even post a photo and maybe a schematic over at Retrotechnologist!

Ya know what they say: A clean workbench is a sign of a sick mind!

Yes Ma'am, please do. I'm rapidly approaching a state of a clean garage, and will finally have a workbench of my own! I'm always looking for inspiration.

A clean bench is a source of inspiration. That wide field of beckoning possibilities...

I have to do that to my desk about every six months: "Hey, there's a desk under here! Who knew?"

WV: "ingst," the creeping suspicion that your polity is about to be renamed Airstrip One (or maybe Two, I guess).

You MUST publish pictures! Although I've heard of such things all my life, I've never seen such a mythical creature.

I think my workbench is white pine, but memory doesn't serve so well at such long distances :P

That 100W monster would be good for making boxes from PC board. My local guru has a nice write-up at http://www.alpinesoft.com/qrpbuilder/index.php which he describes as a temporary website. (My corners aren't as square as his, but I'm workin' on it.)

Almost forgot: see http://www.mcmaster.com/ for the brass nuts, and for just about every kind of bolt and nut you can imagine. (WARNING: Shopping this website can be more addictive than alcohol, tobacco and marijuana!)
