Still trying to reclaim my shack from the clutches of ever expanding clutter. Managed to get the corner of one work table cleaned off and the microscope, hot air rework and soldering stations up and running.
I keep the LCR metre and signal tracer close at hand. Nice to have one place to do close work again. I cannot stress sufficiently my opinion that purchasing whatever equipment you need in order to be able to clearly see what you are doing is critical to your ability to enjoy electronics and ham radio hobbies.
