What kind of psu are you using? Are you running all modules on 5v?
as i wrote, seismic ips2.. http://seismic.industries/ips2/

nice little psu, although the layout could be better for in-case mounting. Maybe i will make some similar later with different layout.
with these modules i measured current around 1,7A from the usb, so it can run quite long time with this 20ah bank.
That standoff idea is baller

Sick of my cheap plastic parts drawers so made this one from salvaged timber
fronts are blackwood taken from an old stump started it last august
Will use this one for resistors - 100 draws with 4 partitioned sections per draw

Holy s#%!
That is seriously skilled work. Looks incredibly good. The blackwood fronts look expertly prepared and finished, great symmetry etc...
Reminds me of older medicinal cabinets, functional at heart but with wonderful aesthetic considerations.

Beautiful work there! Nostalgic reminder of card catalogs like used to be in public libraries before the 90s :youkids:

Hello !
Here is my work since this january (the quarantine helped a lot !)
As you can see, I made some improvements on panels creations (yellow ones are my first tries)
And I know, I have to fill that case, didn't plan to make that big... :hihi:

Looks like good tools to start, Kevin! Many people start with MUCH worse!

SMT components are too difficult to solder ! :omg: So I decided to buy some better tools

That's very beautiful, but I'm not sure that it's terribly practical. Here is my resistor collection (well, most of it -- there are a couple of smaller boxes):
Resistors.jpeg
Most of these came from Digikey, and I just leave them in the bags they come in. I mark the value at the top of the bag with a Sharpie pen, and organize the bags in order. This makes it super easy to find the right value, and to put it back where it goes when I'm done with it. Most of these blue bags have either 25 resistors (uncommon values) or 100 resistors (more common values). The resistors I use a lot of -- 499R, 1k, 10k, 30.1k, 100k -- these I buy in lots of 1000, and they come on tape all coiled up, so I leave those in separate bags which I just store in a drawer in my workbench.

Early on, I thought about keeping resistors in some sort of drawer matrix, but I realized that it would just take up a lot of space and not be very convenient.

I used to have resistors, caps, connectors and hardware in a drawer matrix but it took up too much space in the area I have set aside in my apartment. I moved to something similar that you got with marked zip-lock bags in boxes, then stacking the boxes to save space. The parts drawers where more convenient when grabbing for stuff but not worth the space trade off for me.
