Intro: My Portable Electronic Component Tacklebox(PECT for Short)
This is my Portable Electronic Component Tacklebox.
I can take it wherever i go. (I'm probably bringing it on my next vacation)
Here's how i made it.
Step 1: Parts Needed
I actually got the tackle box for Christmas, but you can probably get one at a bass pro shop.
I also used some post office labels
(and my electronic components!)
i later added my Makey Makey and my Arduino Uno board also.
Step 2: The Bigger Stuff
i put my perf board down on the bottom, as well as my soldering iron, desolder gun, solder, continuity tester, manuals, extra wires, wire strippers,(and eventually, my 2,000+ resistors in bags)
Step 3: Organizing Capacitors
I organized the capacitors from least to greatest uF.
Then i put them in the tacklebox and labeled them accordingly.
Step 4: Resistors!
as i already have stated, i have 2,000 resistors that i got for 10$ bucks off eBay :) Luckily they were already sorted in bags and labeled. PHEW. i couldn't fit them into a section, so i put them in the bottom.
Step 5: Other Components
I added my other components in empty sections, and organized my other capacitors(remember to label!).
Everything fit nicely!
Step 6: Finished!
after i got all the parts in and organized, i taped in the resistor chart and i was done!
now i can bring it wherever i go!
(i also taped in Radioshack's store Business card, which has there number on it)
Thanks for viewing!
