Take a look at my Maker/DIY desk!
I love create or repair stuff. I'ts really a hobby for me. When I have time, it's the first thing I want to do. I love that.
For many months, I want a full-featured maker desk to do what I want without move. It's time to show you!
Before all, let's me tell you all you see on this image is new, All the stuff is sencond-hand, given to me or offered to me by friends.
The computer part
I have found a really small form-factor computer. on a reburbished german website (it-versand). It's a Fujitsu Esprimo and it's great!
It's an Intel Core i5-4570T / 8Go RAM / 240Go SSD. On this little beast, I've installed an EndeavourOS with i3 tiling display manage. It's really lightweight and oh-so-speedy!
This small PC is plugged with an old Acer X233H monitor and a second-hand Dell AC511 soundbar.
This computer is used for laser engraving, 3D printing and (HIVE) development.
The electronic part
I love repair electronic stuff. It's very great to learn how the hardware works. For that, My ex-boss give me some materials, components, ...
Oscilloscope: AgilentTech DSO1072B
I use this wonderful machine to mesure/represent every signal I need on a electronic card/PCB. It's so useful to see signals and found the failure. Repairing electronic stuff is easier with that.
Programmable power supply: GW Instek PSP-2010
My favorite item. No more batery needed when I repair stuff. I configure the output voltage and current, I press the "output" button and VOILA, I have everything i need to power my stuff.
Soldering and rework station: Yihua 962BD+
As an hobbyist, I must have a solder station. But this one is very great: The temperature is very accurate, very easy to use, lightweight, not expensive, ... It's a powerful tool.
The hot air flow from the rework station is very good and help me to disassemble many stuff with (hot) glue, remove paste, ...
Don't know the brand... It's my father who give it to me. This is the last part of my desk and it's really useful! I don't know how i can live without it! I can be more accurate without efforts.
The maker part
After all these things, I need more physical and funny machines. That's why I also have:
3D printer: Creality Ender 3 Pro
This is my first ever printer. After years, this printer is very useful for daily thing or for fun. I've already printed more than 150 stuffs with it but many are for repair things like cogs for washing machine, lamp adapter, joints jewelry, ...
Laser engraver: Ortur Master 1
Last but not the least, my laser engraver. Already updated with some 3D printed feet and the engraved stand ( you can see that in my last Fun with DIY post. It really a cool tool to make some custom gifts or wooden coaster.
I'm not an expert about laser engrave but I love that, just need time to learn more thing about that.
