Let's Make Robots!

Our Respective "Workshops"

Thought it might be cool if we could show off our respective facilities. I think "Robotguy" should go first because that give the rest of us something to work up to!!!

Depending on how big the project is, I'll either stay in my room or go to my garage.  I have a big project right now, so everything's in my garage.  Here are a couple pictures of my garage right now.


Here's my electronics work station.  I have a triple output power supply, a power supply/multimeter/soldering iron station, a computer oscilloscope, and my laptop.  


Here's my mechanical workstation.  Don't have room for a nice solid table =\ but I put my multi-tool on a little  moving platform and I just wheel it out when I need to us it. 



I was just messing about with a digital compact camera, and took a test shot of my workbench.  Then, I realised the it might be good to upload it here, so here it is:


The thing clamped in the vice is a mock-up of a quadrature encoder that I'm working on for the Hitari Tumbler robot chassis.  The idea is to make an accurate sensor for motor/wheel rotation, and hence get good odometry.  I'll fir a couple of IR LED/photodiode units in holes behind that gear.  The gear has an encoder disk on the back.


WOW! Is that the Hewlett Packard 3310A Function Generator? Cooool.

Ok so here's my workplace, which is nothing more than my sleepplace.

I discourage anyone to drill or cut with a dremel on your bed unless you like tiny debris around your legs when you sleep :P 



What's that blue box think on the side of your Dremel case? I have that case and am sure something should go there, but nothing seems to fit.


it's box with some extra tips. it was brundle with the dremel kit i purchased, which was the one just above the basic.

maybe it can also be purchased alone 

Heres my electrical/mechanical table. Not much to look at. Sooo envious of other peoples equipment.

Top left of the table is my homemade desktop powersupply in a homemade wooden box. Ctc would cry if he saw it up close :D

In front of that is a pcb with my NiMH charger on it.



This is my software engineering and all round experimenting corner. The cardboard boxes at the bottom are my highly sophisticated component draws.


Here is our work space. I built the bench today. The other half of this room is still empty. I am not finished yet. Just started on everything today. This is a room that is in our basement that we would just store stuff in. I want to paint these walls and add shelves, etc. I am going to make storage space under the bench area.

ArduinoFun Workspace 

it will get messy :)


that's it




 i live in 25 m2 room so my workspace have to be pocket size :(
