How could you go wrong with a vendor called Lee?

When we named our daughter, i thought Leigh fit well as her middle name, had a nice ring to it, later realized that my affinity for that name was due to my Lee Valley Tools addiction.

There is that!

I got a couple to do that with but just ended up adding a second light so one for each end of the bench. They're  so much studier then those flimsy clamps that in my case at least, seemed to be always letting go.

So for an extra $6 I have justification to buy another tool?  I'm in!

Lee Valley sell a bushing you sink anywhere into your work surface  so you can get rid of that annoying clamp. http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=70534&cat=1,41636,41637,70534

Thanks Dave!  That is exactly what I have been thinking about!  I've actually searched Home Depot for something that would work.  Maybe I'll buy a few so I can move the lamp depending on what I'm working on.

Frys Electronics also has some emergency supplies including Hammond enclosures for a decent price...

Frys is great for hammonds.  They have other cool enclosures too.

I buy the Ferric Chloride from there.

Oops.  Forgot the etchant.  Me too.  Ok, and sometimes diodes.  Wow.  I buy more there than I thought.

I'm almost embarrassed to ask this, but does anybody else have any items they only buy from Radio Shack?  I love the 62/36/2 .022" solder.  I also use their 5mm snap in LED bezels a lot.  They look like the ones I've bought at SB but they're actually better.  No joke!

Those are pretty much my only non-emergency buys there.

Drawers makes building way quicker.

Plus it's fun to sort parts when they arrive!

I remember the baggies inside of baggies thing.  I get drawers for super cheap at harbor freight.  $16 for 40 drawer cabinet.  Quality is good enough for what I need.

What a nice workspace! I've got to make sure my wife doesn't see this, don't feel like hearing "Why can't you be organized like Leevibe?" Because I'm NOT Leevibe..... Sheesh.... Women

Ha!  Call it a clean phase.  I don't have any pics of when my bench was a closet door on saw horses on the living room with baggies everywhere!

I seriously need to get a lamp like that. Partly for photographing, partly to see better.

Yeah.  It's great for side lighting for pics.  Adds drama and coolness.

Glad it's working!!  It's hard to avoid the occasional RS shopping trip.  Ours has plenty of stuff, it's just usually everything but what I need.

I dont know that circuit but i think 2 100nF in series should be close enough (50nF) for test purposes.
