Larry, Larry...

This stuff is fantastic...

These are great projects. I will be posting mine pretty soon.

I am looking forward to hosting all this stuff on http://ArduinoInfo.Info

.. If the authors agree..

Could be done in Wiki fashion, or other pages if someone wants to develop pages differently..

Other suggestions??

Help yourself to anything I've posted. Would that just be recreating the Playground though? Honestly I haven't been there much.

Jiggy-Ninja:
What advantage does this have over magnetic parts trays? This seems unnecessarily top heavy.

Since the cup is above the magnet there will be no magnetizing of the parts within, maybe an advantage.

Top heavy, no, there is a powerful magnet holding the cup to the 304 stainless steel.

Build an adjustable street light inspection light to illuminate the area you are working on.
Lamp is as discussed in post 77.
You can relocate the lamp to any magnet surface.

The lamp can be turn on the SS surface and adjusted to the required angle.

OK, I had two more magnet cups left over.

Best thread ever !

I have one living next door.
She certainly is magnetic :slight_smile:

Dang! You, dally, … it must be springtime! <3<3<3

Springtime :wink:

Hell it's minus 18'C :frowning:

Do standard wifi routers actually work at those temperatures.?

Do they not melt your igloo ? :slight_smile:

No problems with mine.

I have now thrown my old workstation in the garbage. ;D
The following post is a high-resolution view of the front.

You forgot to show us how it’s all used.

Looks like a dentist surgery set of instruments... :o :o :o :o :o

Well most of the stuff was covered when each object’s construction was discussed.

Here is one of the main uses, manual SMD soldering.

The board shown was soldered by Crossroads.

This jig does similar results.

Yes, that’s a BobuinoII that we would have applied solder paste with a mylar stencil fromPololu.com and then reflowed in our handy dandy ancient 4-element Sears Kenmore toaster oven.
Looks weird from that angle!

For the station, maybe include a desk fan for soldering ventilation?

Yes, I have a 12VDC fan mounted on two magnets, not shown.
I should buy stock in magnets :wink:

I use the fan when I use the soldering iron.
I was going to add a pipe to it and move the fumes through a box where a second fan, aiding the first, would either force the air through a carbon filter or trough a water filter.

One of my things to do projects.
