The Electronics WorkbenchMany thanks to our designers below who share their workbench photos. If you would like to see our past submissions, check out the Jameco's Workbench Hall of Fame. If you are interested in building your own electronics workbench, check out these workbench components that are perfect to get you started.
I got interested in electronics in the 8th grade. I worked for the Zenith TV dealer in High School, taught 2-way radio servicing for 10 years and worked for Motorola and the local Motorola shop for 31 years. I retired 2 years ago and spend most of my time on the bench.

As you can probably guess, I do a lot of work with vintage electronics. I also have an interest in robotics.

I have an 8x10 room that is not yet ESD protected but that never stopped me. I have been in electronics for 30 years. I am also the 2014 IPC hand soldering World Champion. I am currently working on a 32 x 64 led display and repairing a cd player for a friend.

Check out the component kits with cabinets at the end. I can relate to all those other messy workbenches because, beyond looking at jumble, I wonder about the beautiful things that emerged from there.
Here is a pic of my basement lab bench. I teach electronics, electrical, controls and microcontroller courses at a local college. This bench allows me to prepare labs, design projects or troubleshoot student designs. I can take a quick measurement and send the results out to the class. It has been great!
