Dave Jones from the Electronics Engineering Video Blog shows us what tools he recommends for a starter electronics lab. He makes a few surprisingly inexpensive recommendations for multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators, bench power supplies, soldering stations, and many other tools and supplies. I, for one, am taking very careful notes on this excellent video since I’m moving from basic to more advanced electronics design.
