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!!!

Electronics workbench, a.k.a. dinner table (it's a good thing I'm not married) :



Machining workbench:




 The fire extinguisher impresses, and worries, me. What appears to be a test-tag on it reinforces that impression.


Wow. You have 2 chairs. Who is the second one for then? You have a helper?

O wait. For more tools off course.

Ahh yes I remember when I could use the kitchen table and the coffee table as a workbench and leave my things there for weeks... It seems like it was longer than just 3 months ago.

In a way I wish I had someone nagging me to get my stuff off the kitchen table, because I'd like to build a second workbench in the garage for the electronics stuff, but it's hard to get around to doing that when you've got this nice flat surface in the house... :) But it'd be nice to have somewhere to sit down and have dinner PLUS a nice workbench for soldering, hehe. It would also be nice not to have to go from one end of the house to the other one when I want to switch between soldering and milling.


Man, I wish I had the space you guys have. 


This is where Edward was created. In case you're wondering where the computer is: I do the computer stuff on my laptop on the couch. 

Well, I can't get pics of what will be my mechanical workshop, as it is a few miles from me and I don't feel like going on another bike ride.  However, for now here is my software side (programming, browsing lmr etc)



 And here is my faithful assistant Samson -


I only have an old photo of my workbench, taken before I moved things around quite a bit.  Here's the link:


About a year ago, I got news desks from Ikea and moved the Linux system out of the way of the soldering area.  Photo during the move:


There's another bench in the garage for the grubbier stuff, with a small lathe.
