Portable Electronic Workbench

Introduction: Portable Electronic Workbench

About: A self taught Maker, Tinker and Hacker with a keen interest in Electronics.

This is my first instructable so forgive me.

Looking around there are a few ideas of portable workstations. I thought I would share mine to share inspiration and to get further tips from you.

I still need to add some form of power, not exactly sure the best way.

I still need to get some compartment boxes for some basic electronics. (Not sure yet what would work best)

The LCD isn’t hooked up to my raspberrie pi, but the concept is true.

Handy for looking up data sheets or tutorials and programming your microcontroller. Perhaps one can also incorporate some basic osilloscope function.

Additionally I would like to hook up some light.
Also I want to add some fan (for soldering).

    I'm in the early stages of working an old Samsonite briefcase into a workstation.

    One suggestion I would tell you is regarding portable power. look into Power Delivery power banks. Not the cheapest options unless you want to roll your own, but that is how i'm hoping to have access to 100w @20v on the go.

    Thank You.

    At the moment Im focused on other projects, but would like to revisit this somtime down the road. Share a link when you have completed your project.
