Watch out! I just nuked 1-post user "gear101" after receiving five different complaints over the course of about 20mins that he's sending PMs to people offering to sell gear. Seems pretty fishy! I'm sure he'll be back under a different name but with the same old game. Be careful! Thanks to everyone who let me know about this guy.

I noticed other sub-forums have this and although they have impressive systems in them, they just don't thrill me as much as seeing DIY stuff!
Now the search function couldn't find me a similar thread in Music Tech DIY so I thought why not?

I guess I'd better kick off.



This is where I'm at after about one and a half year of DIY. Please ignore the Tyme Sefari, not that I don't like it but anyway...

WHERE YOURS AT?!


Dear Mod,
If a similar thread does exist, or maybe this belongs in DIY Forum Challenge (though I don't know about that), please move it to there and I'll edit the nonsense out.

Here is my SDIY building zone. This is an older pic. I have two more of those big gray things filled with ICs now. My o-scope is on another desk. I am switching over to an L-shaped desk since it is a little bigger.

I have an ikea drawer thingy that I store PCBs and panels in. I have been collecting them while working on my skills.

Here is my at home etching setup in this thread.
http://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=24244&highlight=etchi ng

I guess I don't have a lot of pics of my builds because most of them are at various stages of stuffing and wiring. I'll have to post a few when I get a little further.

I don't have any good pics of my workspace at the moment, but here's my in-progress DIY synth (I've posted these around before):


Coppersynth, October 2010 by parasitk, on Flickr


Coppersynth patched by parasitk, on Flickr


Coppersynth patched by parasitk, on Flickr

I have the 292c clones and Mankato done. The Mankato doesn't work at the moment and I have no idea why. I'm in the middle of wiring the Living VCOs right now.

Next year I start a second row after I've moved and have my workspace all set up again! sad banana

I really love the live rig you're working on. The ultimate in SDIY or somewhere damn near!

Low-Gain
The Leman Russ or the Land Raider? The Land Raider is pretty DIY and belongs in the pic really. Too bad it will never be finished...

That is ridiculously neat! My place looks like an outhouse. Get wiring man!

No kidding. So much wiring to do!

Another thing I added to the little work area was a true HEPA filter. It is awesome at sucking up the solder fumes. I basically solder right in front of it and don't have to open the window. I picked up the idea from a post here, I believe, and a recommendation on the filter by xart's post.

Coppersynth is unbelievably beautiful isn't it? Actually, I'm always impressed by all the amazing DIY panel styles. Pretty inspiring stuff.

haha same

mine become that clean about once per quarter and then they slowly become a landfill. good idea with the air filter. you would really need it in that space looking at the angle of the wall

i like to see that other people patch up their unfinished modules just to see what it looks like when in operation smile

It's an attic room and you are correct about the ceiling angle. The DIY desk I am switching to is beside the window in the same room, but that little filter sucks up everything even on the lowest setting. It's been a nice surprise and addition.

I do need to finish up my stuff so I can show off my lovely nice-racks.com burgundy MOTM 5U cabinet.

I have a matching cabinet that is modcan A format. I am going to do some panel designs for that one in anodized blue to match my MegaOhm built modules. Phi's got a great design style and I am going to DIY with that in mind.

i got these curtains from an op shop for party decor but they were so nice they mostly lived in my house with the odd excursion once in awhile for special installations.

Great idea for a thread - You all have great looking setups, but jeese sduck, that's a beautiful system..

Here's my modular a few months back - I got all the empty spaces filled with modules a week or two ago... But I still have a backlog of projects which may mean starting a new cab.

if i had the chance again i think i would have not made my big wood case
even though making that case was so satisfying

the angled mixer rack cases are the best as you can use them so many ways
you can sit them on bench vertical or horizontally - you can take them out of your studio - you can put your racks effects in there. so useful

(i was 100% influenced by spbaker here)



this is my gig rig now

it is recycled from a PKE studio mixer (as is most of that synth).
It is now a 20 stage 'binary-programmed' sequencer. Each column of push switches is wired to be an 8-bit selector.

The remaining 8 columns of push switches are used to set up programmable gate outputs from the Milton.

PostPosted: Fri Dec 31, 2010 12:30 am    Post subject: The blockhaus Reply with quote Add User to Ignore List

Here's the skinny on the blockhaus. I segregate the lab into three zones: the ammo dump (parts + library), the solder saddle (workbench) and the imagination station (design/debug area). Here's an overview:



The ammo dump. I'd say excuse the mess, but it's a lab, not a manufacturing floor:



The solder saddle with red/green RoHS bins and cheapo hot air penis (pencil):



Finally, the imagination station. On the left part of the picture is the power/test bench with all the debug equipment including programmers, scopes, logic analyzers, test PC, etc. On the right is the design station which contains the workstation and enough room to keep a pad of paper or two around in case I want to go old school:



I forgot to mention the tardissynth is part of the test rig for now. Later I'll throw a proper rack frame with a QCR8 and a 3U eurorack in for testing modules.

Second system much more portable. (Now I can take a plain with my baby without carrying 20 kilo of flightcase) Classic 5u are very nice but...

I'm so jealous at you guys...........I love these DIY synths.

I can solder and know some electronics.
Yesterday I even finished a RCD from 4Ms

BUT......if it doesn't come with a faceplate.......it's a no go for me.....and almost every diy thingy comes without faceplates. waah

We have a SDIY meetup twice a month here in Boston. Anyone in town should drop in if interested. Lots of pics/info on the blog.

Awesome thread.
I love looking at other peoples workspaces and studios. I'll post some pictures of my shop as soon as I shovel it out. I'm in the middle of building a new workbench and things are a bit upside down.

Time to Join the fray, with yet another untidy workbench:



Which is helping to build this synth, amongst others:



This is less than half of the MOTM style modular I'm building, which currently runs to over 5 of these cabinets.

Last but no means least, the reason for my username:

I've catalogued a lot of the Synth circuits in a spreadsheet for a few of these magazines.

In the long run, I plan to set up a Web site with lots of information for these magazines, front covers, contents pages and a searchable database of articles being part of this plan. If I can sort out some copyright issues, scans of the electro music articles is on my wishlist, but copyright is a thorny issue though. I've scanned 3500 front covers so far though, only another 5-6000 to go MY ASS IS BLEEDING

My other hobby is building synthesisers, not the other way round. Mr. Green

I see some use the blown plastic white tables used for workstations. I've found them to add a source of static charge. I've moved to a wooden top bench desk. Do you see this? A good static mat and wooden chair like you have is a good idea.

I like to use the mini drawer boxes too. Sometimes they can be a pain to find things in without labels though.

they are force sensing resistors. i make em in little boxes as you see. they are passive and so much fun with the modular or pedals. pass audio or cv or whatever. i usually put a fixed voltage through to accomplish x task.
FSR

i have the boxes for sale in my sig and can do a little custom stuff with them, of course diy people don't need my sales spam, sorry.

Here's my DIY Setup, getting ready for 2011 projects.

Besides the usual fuzzpedals for mates i hope to get some prototypes up and running of Eurorack mods to sell (my dream is to have a small business making these); Voltage Quantiser, Digitaly controlled Analog Function generator, Digitaly controlled Analog Universal filter and an 8x8 switching Matrix.



My CRO recently died, so I'm stuck using that handheld UT81B; absolutly worthless as an oscilloscope, and the worst $100 bucks I've spent (got it second hand)

Hey guys, remember this thread is as much about the results of your work as it is about your messy workspaces. I like to see DIY systems.

this was my setup for a show on Sunday night. There were 4 acts but I got there early and totally hogged the stage - sorry razz
as you can see i'm a real crowd pleaser!
The track is not a recording of the show, but a recording of the patch I setup in the afternoon, made notes and set up something similar whilst playing. Its quite similar, lashings of SD card player, zeitgeist, Serge 73 VCF, hellfire modulator, CGS wavetable, CGS CMOS VCF in series.

i set up four basic patches before starting, let them roll for a while, then started patching 'freestyle' hihi

Usually i like to start with a blank canvas and see where it ends up (often some combination of the Jerkster and a CGS Steiner)
but this was just 30 minutes so decided to give myself a head start.

Notice i stayed far away from the tube-synth, there's plenty of bitey voltages lurking within those big panel holes

yep the librarySerge is still open, still to install a few more boards - this morning it is getting a vari-BW VCF, VCFQ, real ring mod, early Serge ring mod and two DC mixers.
gotta another gig tomorrow, very cool, the guys running it have a record lathe, so the show is recorded live to vinyl and the vinyl is given to the performer.

Your synth is looking good, love all the coloured nanas.
I would love to hear that LOUD

What are you meaning by this... LibrarySerge? Is that some sort of code name for an old style 1 inch grid serge?

hihi
the panels are made from discarded library shelves with 1 inch spacing and early Serge style graphics
Think 'librarySerge came from DGTom, its better than 'Mod#4' i originally called it.

Basically 1 shelf = 4 Serge panels

Yes, there also a preamp!

At the moment the system is in storage, have to build some new speakers first.
Nope, I'm not going to sell it Mr. Green

Looks great! How deep is your case? I just made a bracket for my 4072 VCF. Unfortunately the bracket wasn't wide enough so I have the board pointed longways back which makes it about an inch too deep for my standard Doepfer case. I have a 220mm deep Elby rack (for the sake of deep DIY modules) so I probably won't make a new bracket. Just curious what you ended up doing.

I think my racks are also minimun 220mm deep. They are from an old PA-system with eurocard (100mm x 160mm) modules in them.
I have space enough for the PCB's.

That's an impressive braket! Mine are just 2 little L-shaped pieces of aluminium. The pcb is mounted with only 2 screws...

Thanks! I used one of these. Drilled the holes for the standoffs and used a deep throat punch (like this), Harbor Freight apparently no longer sells, for the pot and jack holes.

What are you using for the rails on this case? Is this a commercial product that someone sells, or just something from the hardware store?

I've been fuddling around with a similar case housing and have some wooden supports that I cut, but I feel like I'd be much better off with aluminum rails.

dingleberry:

are you planning on adding a utility strip in that bottom empty space in your case? I ask because if you mount the vectors flipped over there is another beveled trace that you could mount an aluminum L-bar to easily. From there you could have mults, attenuators, switches, etc... in the L-bar.

Thanks!

For the panel I use the toner transfer method. Works fine!

Those are all Oakley modules. Apart from the sequencers which should be pretty recognisable cool

Depends how you define DIY.

I modified Thomas White's designs for the sequencers. In both cases more or less all I kept where the elliptical arrangements of the knobs (which makes so much sense for an ostinato generator). The MFOS I rearranged even the circular arrangement as I was using dual concentric knobs, which allowed me to give new meaning to Thomas's iconic "coarse/fine" legend. I also used a single on-off-on switch instead of the separate forward/back switches on the MFOS. There are a number of other changes. The Oakley modules I simply took Tony Allgood's panel designs and modified them for my colour-scheme (blue with no in-fill) and with the money saved from that added scales to the knobs.

The power control and multiples strips in the lower part are all mine.

Then some dude in Berlin milled them for me. So not a huge DIY element I suppose.

But still unique.

The case and panels were built from found and recycled materials. Only one panel left on this little beast then it's on to my next major project. It's certainly not the best looking build of all time but it was my first experience working with metal and wood, so I guess it was a giant learning experience.

It looks like an excellent synth and especially cool to be made from recycled materials.
I think using recycled parts is a bit of an extra challenge but you end up with a unique device.

Falafelbiels,

Thanks for sharing that.

You have what appears to be a cozy space. I imagine you have positive workflow there in the diy soundlab.

I'm thinking about ways to implement a small modular that I haven't built yet into a limited space and yours and others have given some inspiration.

cheers

Thanks falafelbiels, and good luck with the move.

There is much inspiration for DIY here and.. hopefully I'll be able to help out with that at some point.

I've seen some of these synths on a few youtube videos, jaw dropping electronic goodness...

Anyhow I just put an order in for a few modules from Oakley and MFOS to get something into motion.

a little background from me
The gear that I had DiY build over the past 6 years are mic/guitar pre-amps, compressors/limiters, gtr pedals, midibox controller, and mixer stuff.. but not so much for recording as for processing sound and synths.

Bench/build pics here :: update, MFOs modules arrived and I built some of them out over the weekend with the beginnings of a MIDIBox CV :
http://analogaccess.com/pics_pics/

many projects from Prodigy Pro/Group DIY forums; great bunch of guys to learn from.

Dunno why it hadn't occurred to me until this year to build a modular, other than not having too much space left to put it.

oh and... an img of DiY stuff from 2008, I imagine synth modular stuff next to it:


cheers
J

You DIY folk are crazy! I'm so impressed by the skill, originality and beauty of much of this stuff, especially Parasitk's copper synth. The best I can do with a soldering iron is manage to avoid burning myself whilst giving myself brain damage with my old lead solder.

Thanks. Yes it is all DIY.

The panel was made using a Laminator and then sticking it on the ALuminum panel with LOCKTITE Glue Spray via the Ray Wilson Technique.

More info on the Individual modules can be found HERE

When I order something if I happen to have a fresh stock I can sell a few PCB's for DIY. If stuff is running low I need it to fund the next batch of restock.

After seeing some of the setups in here I decided to rebuild the Euro Rack Cab. I did not want to spend too much thought into it. With one visit to Lowes USA I found pre-cut wood (Poplar) that I simply just glued and screwed together. Now I have more then enough room to fill and thrill

cool nice work, Blue Lantern!

I'm still trying to figure out which way to go for a rack. I like the idea of having it be wood, but I'm no expert at woodwork.

What is that module on the lower right, is that a 60-Hz sinewave oscillator?

: )

That's a kill yourself module, you patch it in and flick the switch.

Nah That's to add a wallwart for my Midi to CV or when i use Pedals.

Yeah I figured it was a convenience outlet, with the creation of an infernal machine being an option.

hi just thought after month of lurking in the dark i should show you mine..

just finished building the case, multiplex wood, nothing fancy. just bananafied the whole synth and rebuild it (24 modules) into eurorack format. whole lotta work it was!
i didnt spent too much time designing the panels.. before i silkscreened everything with superb results, but it took way too much time...now i didn´t care.
i designed the case quite big to have some space for new modules.

i am currently making knobs...and i´m asking if maybe i´m taking the diy too far.. but its just so much fun!!!
greetings to all
alex

a 4x8 channel mixer module..high density wiring

hmm..now that i see the photos, i should maybe have spent more time on the panels...
greetings to all

Naaah man it looks great, lots of character! Making your own knobs actually does cross a line, see a doctor will you? And while we are on the subject; I really enjoy lurkers coming out in this here thread and I wonder what more beautiful surprise projects will be bestowed upon us here. Can't wait to see!

And welcome Alex, what are all those circuit in there? Spill the beans...

Isn't this thread meant for showing off your messy workspaces? There's build gloat thread where you can flaunt your finished builds.

Cheers,

hahaa no doctor thanks..with roughly 110 knobs its really a money question. and "making" means cutting a broomstick. works surprisingly well.
the modules are: 4x vco, two on one faceplate.dual ringmod, dual sample/hold,some tools like inverters,offsets, slew,...,stepsequencer,clocksequencer+divider, 3x vca,3x adsr, 4 lfos, steiner/parker filter, noise.
this is all curetronic stuff. matthias from curetronic helped me a lot at the beginning and he is a great guy too who -to my ears- produces great stuff.
also in there the 4x 8ch mixer and 2x th. white lpg. i need two more of those...

so on every faceplate are 2-3 modules

aah and the doepfer quantizer + pll. mfb midi interface.

so far a quite "traditional" setup for tonal/melodic work. i plan to build more stuff to twist/bend/create gates and cvs, like logic, comparators, vcs and so on to have more "controlled" chaos and ways to experiment
glad you like it! i do too! the thing sounds great by the way Rockin' Banana!

Hi auftauchend,

Please don't take my comments as being directed personally at you. I was just saying that this thread had deviated from its original intent.

You have a nice looking modular by the way!

Cheers,

Welllll, I actually started this thread for showing off DIY systems, just like in the various formats sub forums "show your XX system here" threads. One sees a lot of DIY modules in the gloat thread, but hardly ever (semi-) complete systems. Keep the messy workspace pics coming though, and gloating is promoted here as well...

You may want to try the Ian Fritz designs for the CV mangling, Alex.

absolutely no problem adam-v
thanks for the advice, those fritz designs do look good and some of them quite easy to do also..i was having a look at those chaos circuits. although i like the idea of patching chaotic systems without dedicated modules that produce chaotic cv or gate..well that sure is sth for another thread. but i think that is why i am attracted by the cgs serge stuff. i think i need more tools like the dusg, vc lfos and so on. thats the problem with big cases..all the empty space you need to fill.
but the soldering iron is still warm from the stuff i showed you. so first i have to make some music and test it on a stage, because playing live is what i enjoy the most with my modular.
good night

I'm too anal to have my workspace messy for long. I just finished a few builds and straightened up a bit. I hope this doesn't disappoint the real DIY'ers here. I've been away from building circuitry for decades and am just now getting "back-in-the-saddle-again".

A corner of a back bedroom with a full king-size bed for crashing after hours of ironing. Humble and cozy.

Yep. It's a good deal for the dough but Rigol makes one for less money with a faster sample rate. waah This Owon does fine for what I need with synth work though.

I actually still like my BK Precision 2120 better for most stuff. When doing digital timing troubleshooting at work (CNC machine service) the analogue scopes are better at detecting RF interference and stray transient noise. They don't respond to everything. Digital can be too fast unless you set it up for hold recording. When diagnosing boards on a bench the digital scopes rule, but for whole system analysis in the field I like the analogues.

That's got a smaller screen thumbs up . I was considering the faster sampling rates, but i won't be working with RF anymore, just audio, so i thought it was fine.

Now that people know that you fix CNC systems you going to get heaps of hassling emails to get CNCDIY 3020 machines working hihi

... Mostly from me d'oh!

This is a fantastic thread -- very inspirational!

Andrew, I remember seeing your dummy years ago on the web and being completely awed by it. That's what it's all about!!!!!

And the coppersynth, and everyone else's.... so beautiful.

And you'll never get a picture of my bench! hihi

Hi Matt,

sure, HK11 was my deadline to get some finished boards hidden behind the panels. And I ran out of time finally. No VCPS running flawless and paneled, both VCRingMods running but not paneled. VCSwitches unfinished... waah
HK12 will see an exclusive Fonitronik rig. Promised. oops

Thanks! It´s going to be a folding case like the buchlas when I have 3 panels. There´s some drawings here at muffs for a similar case.

@Dego, yes the basement is super! I can recomend moving up north for cheaper access to a basement of your own thumbs up

you should sell them to audiophools, they will pay hundreds of dollars for wooden knobs because they think it makes their amplifier sound better.

In which can be seen my first DIY project and the accompanying chaos:

The resurrection and improvement of a formerly 'dead' Korg Poly-800, which has become a modular/DIY lab of some sorts and which has got me completely hooked. It has the excellent custom Korg NJM2069 filter, which some have compared to the best CEM/SSM ones.

The Korg is what you see open in 'lab' mode.

Mods performed:
1. Extension of the battery leads and connection to external 9V power supply (resurrection) we're not worthy
2. Cutoff Frequency Pot
3. Resonance Pot
4. 12/24dB Switch
5. Osc1->Cutoff Frequency Pot
6. External Audio Into VCF Osc1 Mix Input Jack
7. External Audio Into VCF Osc2 Mix Input Jack
8. External Cutoff Frequency CV IN Input Jack
9. Osc 2 to Res CV In (on/off, currently just wires hanging out for more experimentation)

Lots of mods still possible and planned or explored, including:

1. Resonance CV IN Input jack
2. Rademacher->Walsh harmonics osc mix
3. External Audio Into VCF #3 - Noise/External Audio Switch and Input Jack
4. Osc1 CV Signal Input Jack
5. Osc2 CV Signal Input Jack
6. VCA CV Signal Input Jack
7. Amp Cross-Mod for Oscs
8. Multi-mode/state-variable Filter (switches/Mix pots)
9. Internal LFO CV to the various mentioned CV INs
10. Chorus board Depth/Speed Pots
11. Chorus board feedback switch/Pot
12. Chorus board Pseudo-Physical Modeling (simple Karplus-Strong) trigger(!)
13. Chorus board LFO CV to internal CV INs
14. Waveform multiplier mod
15. Integration of Expert Sleepers' Silent Way plugin for CV into those new CV IN Input Jacks (didn't manage to get it working on first few tries)

It's a very good synth to start with and this is why:

1. It can be had for cheap as many people think it's damaged forever when it loses its program memory. You just need to transfer the programs again through a wav or mp3 file when the synth is in Tape/Load mode.
2. It has an incredibly powerful filter and has analog signal paths within, so it can sound very good, but...
3. It was intentionally crippled internally by Korg (cost-cutting + 80's digital synth craze)
4. Therefore, there are a lot of potential mods that are initially easy but which open up the possibilities of the synth (i.e. the Moog Slayer and FM-800 mods).
5. It has an unusual but limited 'additive' Osc section based on Rademacher generation/synthesis. I say 'additive' because I am thinking of the usual additive as in sine waves additive, but in fact, Walsh generation removes harmonics when you 'add' more orders of the function. Therefore, doing the External Audio In mods will bring much more to the sound palette in a very easy way.
6. It also has a paraphonic synth architecture, together with a Bucket-Brigade Chorus, so you could get very good classic string sounds with it wink. The synth is not that complex to modify and use, therefore. Putting it into Chord mode allows you to have some monophonic-type of operation.

The way I use this now is:
Kurzweil K2500 Oscs -> Korg Poly-800 External Audio IN -> VCF -> Pro Tools FX (!)

This gets rid of the Osc limitations, the polyphony limitations and the Velocity to OSC amp or Vel-to-other destinations limitations prior to the VCF. Multi-track audio recordings show how much the Korg VCF filter warms things up. applause

So this is my modular setup currently...

The Kurz is an 88-key K2500XS + KDFX. It is a polyphonic semi-modular in itself (but DSP/Digital, not analogue).

You can also see on the lower right: an Arduino kit, which came with a mini-breadboard which makes me feel cramped sometimes.

Not shown:

- an Ensoniq ESQ-1 soon to be 'parted',
- a Yamaha Sy-22 (soon to be parted/sold too - PM me if interested).

Some videos of my summer progress on DIY and the mods are here:

Enjoy!

Questions: favorite VCO, VCF, VCA, favorite module?


wrap-round rocks ;P

just out of sight is a big monitor and an el capistan and time factor

fav module is easy - haible freq shifter - that thing is just gorgeous

fav vco is a toss-up between the teezer and the living vco, all depends on mood, theyre quite different.

fav vca - i do like the caustic acid of the threeler, but you cant beat the 440 fatness tbh smile

fav vca - pushing the defintion somewhat, but you can do some nuts things with a fully vc interpolating scanner

im becoming convinced that, if youre doing anything other than straight up subtractive, fixed ffb modules are as essential as vcas - and the yusynth is a pearl

my hit/miss ratio on all that was unbelivable.

every module worked first time (pending calibration)

only toasted one pcb, a 4 stage cgs folder (6 stage one ended up behind the panel), and thats only because i was testing it bare on the lid of the monster base from an existing psu, and cable tension slid it off the cardboard it was sitting on right over the metal edging of the base case lid - shorts everywhere.

replaced all the ics on that, but it never showed a glimmer of life again.

but it never get mounted behind a panel so doesnt really count in the loss column smile

I was actually out to get some KRK Rokit pair, but then I compare the sound and the soundstage of the Fostex to others and I was satisfied. Compact, powerful, seemed colorless and balanced, superb soundstage, got those and they're still going strong.

this is where i build stuff, rather than my synth setup. Ikea expedit shelves bolted together and bolted to some legs and the wall. ikea drawer thingy.
self made table part.

Light was adapted from something a neighbor threw out. those are chinese ebay LED bulbs!

6 pictures stitched with microsoft ICE,



there are a bunch of component drawers and stuff on the other side of the door.

I am building a little utility module with just the basics, as well as a power outlets, amplifier/speaker and stuff. will be a panel on one of the shelf boxes.

want.... to.... show.... you....

well, I guess I can explain first. I started building my modules a few months ago. So far all I have been making are Ray Wilson's designs from MFOS. I bought a couple of boards from him (VCO and power supply) but for the most part I have been etching my own boards. I have also been making my front plates out of acrylic, using a laser cutter at LVL1 (a hackerspace in louisville, ky where I live). I have a VCO, a dual LFO, and a dual VCA done (the VCA needs fixing....) and a dual ASDR alllllmost done. Pic to follow!

If you are a windows user, there is a thing from microsoft called ICE which is free. i just dragged a bunch of photos i took in sequence, and did NOTHING ELSE and it stitched this up for me.

and there is my modular asking for more stuff with all that empty space!

dunno if these pix can give a good impression of my obsession... its much worse than it looks, the cupboard is packed with all kinds of archaic electronica - 1000s of tube, old dials, etc recycled from old lab gear.....crap really
note the panel on the chair ready to be almost sat on, in timeless muffwiggler fashion

another bit of diy, i love it, loud enough for me and has worked perfectly for years. its a bit dangerous tho, lots of holes with 400V lurking inside waiting for prying fingers. -

I updated the diy workbench using chunks of metal bolted together into the shape of a desk tier :



Provides more surface area to test circuits with the bench PSU and o'scope (not pictured). This is getting use as I focus more debugging the modules being built!

On the bench here: MFOs VCO and MOTM-960 power adapter board mounted to a 19" perforated steel panel

your parts bins are inspiring. I only have two cases but they are all labeled and sorted. I don't know how you do it without labels. reading resistor colors is boring for me. I spent a whole day stocking my parts bins and labeling them. that is love for DIY.

This view is a bit dated. Since taking it I have added a Wavetek sweep generator and an HP DVM.
