    Win a Fluke 87V!


    Two main prize categories, best or most interesting or unique soldering set-up and a lets see your workbench category.
    Will run from mid December till the end of February. I'll announce the winners in March and post the winners, photos, and comments.

    If this one goes well, I'll plan on running a couple each year relating to soldering, test equipment, and electronics workbenches.
    I'll announce on the site and here when final entry details and entry forms are available. Still a couple of weeks away from the start and room for a few more prizes.
    Open to residents of the U.S. and Canada.

    How many are thinking of trying this out?

    I like contests, so I will be. I have the meter already but I have lots of meters. The hot air is a nice setup and looks like it will have nozzles like Hakko.

    This is my bench set up, not all my equipment, but most of it.

    First picture is all the equipment I use in troubleshooting.

    Top shelf is Sencore HA2500, horizontal tester, Sencore 2125 computer monitor anaylzer. Second shelf is my scope Sencore SC3100, in my opinion is one of the best scopes on the market today, but not longer manufactured. Then Sencore PR570 isolation transformer and safety analyzer. Great for working on almost any unit for supplying power and setting a trip breaker to further help in troubleshooting. Also great for testing for leakage. Third shelf is my two power supplies 0-42vdc, 0-18vdc. PSL60 DC power supply load tester, great for working on switch mode power supplies. Then one of my favorites LC103 capacitor and inductor analyzer. One the bench is my Sencore VM401 video generator, Fluke meter 87V, and Capacitor Analyzer 88A.

    Not shown will be my Fluke portable scope with meter, wavetek function generator, Fluke 77 meter, Simpson 260, 270 multimeter, Byrd wattmeter.

    Second Picture is my soldering bench. Pace MBT 250 with solder extractor, solder tweezers, and SMD desoldering iron. I use a Weller WES51 for soldering. Hakko FR803 with FR830 preheater. The stand is stainless steel that I had made for the preheater.

    This is my setup for troubleshooting and repair.
