Adam Savage Offers Advice on Setting Up a Shop and Shop First Aid
In this Tested Q&A, Adam answers shop-related questions and gives some great advice on setting up a shop and shop first aid.
The best advice is about shop first aid — always making sure your first aid supplies are close, organized so that you know where everything is without thinking about it, and that you can grab what you need with one hand (should you be bleeding with the other).
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
