Two Workbenches and a Mini Solder Pot

KC9LIF's bench

Hi Bill,
FB...What a great addition to your work bench. Congrats, you will put it to good use! I remember that scope when I worked at the Nuclear Physics Research Department Cyclotron at Indiana University about 30 years ago. It was the top of the line and worked great!! I lucked out by getting a Techtronics 2213 60Mhz dual trace at a Hamfest for a great price a few years back. Luck like that comes to those that wait. I recently gave my work bench a face lift... BTW, the bench doesn't look that nice now...

Bill -
Ray VK4ZW's "solder pot" idea is a good one....for another version check out Doug Hendrick's tech note at his Hendricks QRP site:

Congrats on the new scope! We have finally moved to our "place in the sun" and I had the opportunity to double the size of my workbench.

  1. Built the mini solder pot a while back and I can attest to the fact that it works nicely. For some wire you must be patient though but eventually you are left with great ends. Thanks for all that you do for the amateur community. I enjoyed your book very much and have recommended it to a number of my friends. My Kindle Fire and your book got me through a number of boring periods in waiting rooms hi hi.
