The Electronics Bench is located in the MSL Prototyping Lab. Here you will find multiple soldering stations, desoldering stations, hand tools, multimeters, wire cutter and strippers, hand tools and more. Members can build circuit boards, LED light set-ups, AC or DC power systems and teach themselves the basics of electronics. Many of our members use this area for doing DC van wiring systems. They use it to build solar power stations, hook up rechargeable batteries and run inverters to their vehicles. The electronics bench also provides lots of parts and pieces so you don’t have to order them in bulk and wait for weeks for them to ship when you only need 1 part. We work on a honor-based donation system to help fund our stock of parts, but will always try to have what you need on site.
Many of our members use the electronics bench for projects big and small.
