Greg Charvat, a researcher at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory, wrote in to share his old workshop, the Rad Lab:
This workshop is full of microwave test gear, analog test gear, new stock components, data books, sorted parts, etc. It also has a complete machine shop with a Bridgeport vertical mill, a drill press, compressed air, and other tools. All of this was crammed into the basement and garage of my 816 square foot house in East Lansing MI.
I used this workshop in grad school from 2004-2007, where i used it to build my dissertation and other radar sensors. Since then i moved to Massachusetts and brought the workshop with me (less the bridgeport mill and many of the scrap parts).
