Introduction: Plasmana's Workshop

Picture of Plasmana's Workshop

Yep, in that little beaten up little garden shed, that is where I build some of my most amazing projects, the plasma speaker, marx generator, tiny shocker, and so on. The reason my workshop is so messy is because from all of my times of collecting free stuff from skips or dumpsters, (Thank you to all of you dumb people for throwing out great stuff in the trash for me to pick up! :-)

And all of the pictures you see, it is only just like 50% of my shed shown.

Nice workshop, you seem to have everything and it is all close to hand.

Thanks for showing us.

It's extremely cool dude.. wish i had one like that.. and getting stuff from dump and building extrordinary gadjets is really cool..

schumi23 (author)2012-04-01

I was wondering the same thing... and they say Americans are wasteful XD

luig (author)2011-11-14

can i move in,,, please?

punkhead58 (author)2010-03-06

Ah...electric pianos. I found one in the trash once, those things have enough resistors to supply a small army. (That is, if the military had a use for resistors.)

luig (author)punkhead582011-11-14

they soon will

Plasmana (author)punkhead582010-03-06

Lol yeah, I have no idea why they have sooo many resistors, AND diodes!

Jimmy Proton (author)Plasmana2010-08-08

maby to get acurate sound???

highvoltageguy (author)2011-09-18

harvey639 (author)2011-07-20

R.A.T.M (author)2011-07-11

wer do you get all the fans

ubr.bzkr (author)2008-12-06

Wow palsmana your work shop is massive compaired to mine. mine is just a converted computer desk with shelvs, a tall drawer thinf and some old boxes to orginise my bigger stuff. :)

Plasmana (author)ubr.bzkr2008-12-07

Haha, yours is much tidier and nicer than mine! :-)

ubr.bzkr (author)Plasmana2008-12-07

wow if you think thats considered clean then you should see it now! its basically spotless compared to what's in the picture. I guess since I tend to loose things all the time I like to keep my workspace neat so its easier to find those small parts.

Plasmana (author)ubr.bzkr2008-12-07

You tend to loose stuff? Well, wait until you get a lot of stuff like I have! :-)

ubr.bzkr (author)Plasmana2008-12-07

wow that would be nice to have all that now but I can't imagine the mess I'd make. mabe ill have to move my workshop into my shed like you. problem is id have to find a place for all the stuff in our shed right now. also it would get kinda cold in the winter. is your shed connected to your houses heating or do you keep some sort of heater in there?

Plasmana (author)ubr.bzkr2008-12-08

I am not allowed to have a heater one in my workshop my dad says, because the electric bill is very high at the moment.. He said I could pay him using electric for the heater, but I have no money.. :-(

wintergoat (author)Plasmana2011-03-14

Hehe... I'm 12 and im just like you... Except my stuff just kinda lies around in a big pile...

awang8 (author)Plasmana2008-12-25

Maybe you can make a website and sell some fancy stuff eg. plasma speakers plasma globes arc thingies ultra-flexible-cable soldering irons... The possibilities are endless... Probably...

Plasmana (author)awang82008-12-26

yeah, I am trying to make my own website using dreamweaver, but I still don't know how to use it...

Callum Snowden (author)Plasmana2010-12-27

I can make you one because I'm fairly good, if you want to have a look at some of my work, check out Bearing in mind that it is still a work in progress and it takes a long time because I don't use a site builder... :)
PM me if you want me to design one for you :)

-max- (author)Plasmana2010-07-08

try NVU you down-load it and uh, well USE it

awang8 (author)Plasmana2008-12-29

Maybe I can make it for you and you pay me a few (million) bucks?

Plasmana (author)awang82009-01-07

I have £10, that should be more than enough for you. XD

awang8 (author)Plasmana2009-01-08

How many AUD in there in a pound?

One million? Two million? Three million? Zzzzzzz....

Plasmana (author)awang82009-01-08

About $10,000,000,000. Satisfied? :-)

awang8 (author)Plasmana2009-01-09

Ten billion? Let me check...<br/><br/>1.00 GBP = 2.15682 AUD <br/><br/>Ooh... Looks like someone got their maths wrong...<br/><br/><sup><sub><sup><sub>Courtesy of</sub></sup></sub></sup><br/>

Plasmana (author)awang82009-01-10

Haha, I was just joking, but people in the real world will try and fool you, so watch out!

awang8 (author)Plasmana2009-01-10

Uhh... Yeah I kinda realized...

pyrofirelighter (author)Plasmana2009-04-19

plas, did you move to the uk from america? oh nice workshop, i have to use my room- not enough space for my homework now :( I mean :)

Plasmana (author)pyrofirelighter2009-04-21

Yeah, I moved to UK from America because of bloody Katrina.

Where exactly did you live. Louisiana or Texas? Louisiana took a more direct hit, and was apparently publicized more, but you never know. Our house didn't sustain much damage from it, but things weren't pretty here either. And I love your workshop, by the way. I manage to keep all my tools in one tackle box (You do remember what tackle boxes are, don't you? Or did you even live near the red necks?) a small parts organizer, and my dremel's case. So it's something of a portable workshop. I enjoy the convenience of portability, but I would prefer the convenience of having all my parts on hand.

bylerfamily (author)Plasmana2009-04-29

Do you mean hurricane Katrina?

Serpentine (author)bylerfamily2009-05-09

What else would he mean?

becauseican (author)Plasmana2009-02-28

i tried dreamweaver but then i found iweb its easier but not as customizable here is a link to my website

cd41 (author)Plasmana2009-01-06

I wrote all my HTMl codes for my website on webs, they let you have a store on it (well i didn't write the forums codes or blog codes just got them from webs) if you can get the custom shop link to work for you(most of there stuff like the shop cost very low if not free) and btw all my electric stuff can fit into 2 paper brown bags and a small pickle jar but my desk looks like a portion of your 'shop

cd41 (author)Plasmana2009-01-06

I made my website on Webs they let you put a store on your site, i wrote all the HTML all from scratch(mostly) its at [http://Whales With Thumbs].com

ubr.bzkr (author)Plasmana2008-12-28

My schools computer admistrator uses that alot. our schools web site is made with dreamwever. i've used it before, and im on my schools web site club so im ok with that kind of stuff.

Plasmana (author)awang82009-01-07

Oh, for the ultra-flexible-cable soldering irons, I just simply replaced the PVC wire with an iron's (steam iron, or what ever the heck it is called) wire that I found in the trash.

awang8 (author)Plasmana2009-01-08

Yeah, I realised but I would have used like 10 coats of expando.

That's because the neighbours don't like me bringing in big "appliances" fron the trash.

LaxLuvr (author)Plasmana2009-01-07

how old r u? im 12 and my workshop is in my basement

Electronics111 (author)LaxLuvr2009-04-10

I'm 12 and I work on the living room floor!

I'm 12 and do electronics in bedroom and woodwork/manufacturing in garage. Windows ice over in winter and have no electrivity/power tools so do quite a bit of manual labour...

codex653 (author)Electronics1112009-07-05

plasmana's not an adult??? woa didn't see that comin. i'm 16 and i have to say plasmana you are very very smart in this stuff! keep it up!

-max- (author)codex6532010-07-08

i think hes 13

Davecarp (author)codex6532009-07-15

I can't believe it either, I'm 16 as well and i can't believe he knows this much. he's certainly off to a good start

Jimmy Proton (author)Davecarp2010-06-24

im 14 and i have a workshop similar to that just smaller and and not as much stuff

ubr.bzkr (author)Plasmana2008-12-08

Oh. so do you just wear lots of warm stuff in the winter? I'm sure you could build something to solve your problem, I mean come on you have got to be using up a lot of electricity already with all your high voltage experiments correct? or at least you go through alot of batteries.
