All I see in this pic is a beautiful Hakko 888-D and some assorted confetti.  Love my Hakko!
Love my Hakko too! *high five*

Felt kind of bad for them after I ordered a second soldering tip directly from them (well, directly from their US presence).  They actually called me up and asked if there was ANYTHING else they could do for me or my company (no, they didn't say it in a lustful voice or anything).  The rep probably started rattling off a detailed sales pitch--I can't fully remember.  It seemed like I really let them down when I revealed myself to be a hobbyist (their choice of word). 

Still, top notch soldering station, even though I've never changed it from its default setting of 750 soldering magic units (must be degrees or something; I judged by the results that it seemed an appropriate enough number and never worried about it afterward :P).
I run mine full tilt (899) all day Monday through Saturday, on my second tip, always impressed at how it handles heavier stuff with ease, Tele basplate ground wires, tremolo claw ground wires, humbucker covers, eats it all up.

I love mine too but I wish it just had the older analog knob instead of the buttons. I realized shortly after I got it that the memory settings isnít a feature thatís useful to me. I do most stuff around 560 or so and crank it to 700 when I need to dump in some heat.

I forgot to add to this.. this is my new bench during the summer months here in Hell, CA.



I need to get a nice place to put my parts box's. As of now, I just bring in the bins I need and it really slows down the process.

When I got into pedalmaking in 2013 with a Rangemaster (thanks, Brian!), this was my workspace.

I'm making sixteen band EQs, MS10 VCFs, and I'm still working with maybe 400x150mm space.

I'm still jealous of all you guys with dedicated workstations with room to set up all your gear. My o'scope only gets taken out when I actually need it :/

My gigantic workbench is still not big enough. No room to do any soldering at the moment. Bench has been invaded by the $200 Rhodes Mk1 88 key that I almost had done before I picked up a $180 Wurlitzer 145 and there's not even room for it. I had to use the top of my Hammond M3 as a second bench. Soldering junk is in the shelves above. PCB/electronic junk is stored inside in the boxes and bags I got from Tayda/Mouser.
