A home Electronics Lab is dream of every single Geek in this world. I am sure you all have one, small big or professional one. Recently I have brought few new tools and components for my own lab. So I was re-arranging all, and suddenly I thought, I should share with you.
Here is my current small lab looks like.
Give me your feedback, what you think about this lab 😛
My Work area is very small , But I always prefer, you should have one long work bench. Bigger work bench will help you organize thing properly and help you to avoid mistakes.
Tool plays important role in every DIY project. Make sure every tool you use should always sharp. It will increase your efficiency and avoid making false excuses.
Soldering is Major part of every electronics guy, who make DIY stuff. We can’t avoid this. Trust me add one helping hand to your lab. You will feel so comfortable, and soldering will be so easy after this.
I brought this soldering helping hand from here.
A multimeter, purpose don’t need to be explain. Personally if you will ask me, I never used a costly good multimeter, I prefer chap one. This multimeter in image you are seeing is just 150INR or 2$ USD. It does all the job for me like Voltmeter, Current Measurement, AC measurement and Resistance check, pretty much all basic work. You can buy this one from here. If you want to invest more, Then I will suggest to invest in FLUKE.
Pliers and Cutters:
These tools you should have at least one of them in your lab. Make sure your pliers and cutters are sharp and you oil them in few months interval.
You should always keep this handy, these are most essential tools. Keeping screw driver set is always a good practice for your small or large electronics lab. Don’t Buy cheap ones. Here is one good set you can buy.
You must have soldering iron, that is for your sure. But I saw few of my friends dont have desodlering pump. I will surely suggest you to invest in one good not cheap de-soldering pump.
Hot Glue Gun:
If you often do DIY projects, then glue gun will be really help ful. These are cheap, comes arround 5$ and works for many days. You should start investing on one of them. You can buy this one from here.
Drill Machine: (Optional)
This is my first drill machine. I never used any drill before, But most of times I feel, I am lacking drill machine for few project. I have very less experience with this till date, I will share more info on this future soon. I brought it from here .
Small Hacksaw Blade:
I guaranty , you will fall in love with this 1$ hacksaw. I remember, I used this for every single project of mine. I just need to change blade. Left one you see is 10 year old and still helps me to deliver the projects.
Consider investing on few development boards, they really save a lot of time and help you to produce prototype in very less time.
I will always suggest you to invest less, but make sure you don’t compromise quality of tools. Tools for GeeK and Sword for warrior should always be sharp to get most out of it.
Also share me your lab picture, I will be glad to show yours. If you have any suggestion or doubt You can always ask me on comment section below.
