The Lab

Here are some Very outdated pictures of the lab

The Chill Room

The chill room, it's purpose is in its name!
The Lab/Chill Room/1

The Electronics Workstation

Like the name suggests, this is where we do electronics. We have plenty of soldering irons, random parts for projects, and a rework station.

This will also be of interest to some: a rack full of goodies from the past.
The Lab/Electronics/2

The Computer Table

A table where we have some computers that people use for all sorts of things.

Printers

We haven't figured out why, but people tend to give us their old printers. We currently have a Xerox wax printer for PCB fabrication and some regular printers.

The Network

Foulab has an even mix of hardware and software people, most are in both camps. This is picture of our *old* server infrastructure. Our NEW server infrastructure is tucked safely in our server shed!

We actually have more equipment but we don't want to run up our electricity bill. Believe it or not, almost all of that was donated to us! And there's more!

Storage

We always have people donating stuff to us, so we built a lot of shelves.

Our Tools

What would foulab be without the ability to make awesome stuff? Here's some of our tools.

The CNC

The CNC is an amazing tool. We acquired it for a ridiculously low price and have been very happy with it. And yes, that joystick is used to position the CNC manually.

Hand Tools

We have just about about every tool we can ever need.
The Lab/Tools Area/1

Our band saw is a very old one, it was non-functional when we received it because of a thick layer of rust and a missing motor. We got rid of the rust with a mild acid and gave it a good coat of paint.
