Bearmos’s workshop and DIY tools

Posted on Friday, October 5th, 2012 in DIY, tools by DP

Forum regular Bearmos gave us a tour of his workshop and shows off several DIY tools. Check out the pictures below the fold.

A thrown together workbench (in use for ~ 6 years now. originally built using an upturned recycling bin as a saw horse). I need to cut a hole in the back of the shelf so I can fit an old analog scope up there.

Led ring light on scope.

A light box with some terrible diffusion (still useful for lining up double sided artwork and tracing).

Breadboard power supply.

Poor man’s “lathe”

    The lathe is a classic, I love it. Just way too cool.

    Bearmos – Some say, “whatever is, is good”. I say, “whatever works, is good”. Nice balance between organization and chaos! Chaos often gets the upper hand in my workshop. I made my brute pounding/sawing/drilling/nailing workbench out of 2x4s and two pallets.I can stand on it and jump up and down w/o it wobbling…
