Well, this is my workroom. Yep, kind of a big mess, but what the
heck. This photo was taken on June 5, 2004. On this day, it
is a little extra messy because I am using the room I keep my computers
in as an isolation room for a new rescue cat I got about one week
earlier. Hopefully he will be able to join my other cat
On the right of the photo, you can just barely see part of the shelves
that hold most of my parts. In the back of the room are my
books. Keeping with DIY, that is a bookshelve that I built
myself. I could not find anything ready made that fit my
needs. On the left, you see my workbench. The workbench is
courtesy of Axsys Technologies. When they shut down my division,
they let me take home my workbench. The tall wooden cabinet in
the forground is one of my synthesziers. On top of that is the
Mikado. In front of synthesizer on the floor you can see all of
my tubes of IC's that I use for synthesizer projects. Mind you,
you cannot see the rest of IC collection which are stored in plastic
boxes like the ones you can see in the photo, that are stacked up
beside my workbench on the left (not visible).
On top of the bookshelf, you can see an antique short wave reciever
(dates from ~1965), and next to that are a stack of manuals, and next
to them is an original recipe Epson MX80. It dates from about
1980. Last time I used it, it still worked. That the blue
thing on the right on top of the shelf is an Arium ML4100 Logic
In the foreground, to the right, you can see an antique step stool
(date from the very late 1940's, I beleive). And right behind
that, under a Mouser cardboard box, is my latest synth project.
These shelves contain my "organized" parts...resistors, capacitors,
hardware, pots, jacks, transistors, and some junk....
This is my milling machine and lathe. Over on the right you can
catch a glimpse of a Clausing drill press. It needs some
work...mainly new bearing and a new quill.
Back by the door you can see an antique Westinghouse electric
fan. Built like a tank. I recently had the motor
rewound. The guy who rewound it said it would probably last
another 50 years.
