How to set up your own mini lab

How to set up your own mini lab

Today, I’m freezing my butt off in Norway.

A couple of weeks ago, I was sweating in Colombia.

Who knows where I’ll be a month from now?

I travel a lot.

But I love building electronics, so I always set up a lab wherever I go.

Last week I was in Sweden with my parents. There was a tiny little storeroom in the house we were staying. My dad built a desk out of things he found in the garage. Then put it in the storeroom for me to use as a lab.

And it was all I needed:

Because…

You don’t need a lot of equipment to build electronics.

I’m traveling with two boxes.

One box with lots of different components:

Resistors, capacitors, transistors, LEDS +++

And another one for bigger things:

Breadboards, Arduinos, a soldering iron, multimeter +++

When I need something I don’t have, I find a local store to buy it if possible.

Or I order online.

All you really need is a desk.

…and your favorite collection of components.

You can start out small, with only a few components. And be able to build a lot of cool things. Just as I show in my eBook “Getting Started with Electronic”:

Keep on Soldering!
