Fred Ebeling Collection
This is a temporary page for information relating to curating electronic parts, supplies, and tools, focusing initially on those donated by the late Fred Ebeling.
- Curate Fred's donation at the RAD Lab popup. This is across the parking lot from Scrap Exchange in an ex-beauty salon (called "Belle Amour") at 2000 Chapel Hill Road, Durham. Here's a map and this is what it looks like.
- Generalize this process to other donated electronics (e.g. Andre's donation) while being careful not to mix unvetted components in with those known to be unused stock from a reliable vendor.
- Consider back-filling existing Splatspace inventory with some of this process.
NOTE: This work is NOT happening at Splat Space, it's happening at RAD Lab (see details and pointer to Google Map above).
- Saturday August 12, 2017 10am to 6pm. Eleven participants (Shannon, Martin, Peter R, Owen, Jennifer, Shaw, Sarah, Tony M, Jocelyn, Ben, Pete). Labeling/Cataloging Session. A good start on infrastructure and process was made with many parts captured.
- Sunday August 13, 2017 2:30pm to 4:30pm. Two particpants (Ryan, Pete). Pre-labeled all the wire and cable boxes.
- Tuesday August 15, 2017 2:00pm to 6:00pm. Two participants (Jeremy, Pete). Put all the wire and cable boxes into the spreadsheets.
- Thursday August 18, 2017 2pm-6pm. Two participants (Tony M, Pete). More boxes labeled, photographed, and entered into the spreadsheets. Also did a quick evaluation of the >> insane << number of surface mount parts donated to Splat by Scrap Exchange. These are reels of parts designed to feed automated pick and place machines. Rough estimate is a million or two resistors, much smaller numbers of capacitors, a few (i.e. less than 10 thousand!) rectifiers, and other parts like resistor network chips. The parts are 10 to 15 years old but still absolutely usable. Except they are mostly 0603 (six by three hundredths of an inch), which is below the threshold for hand-soldering by any but the most avid (masochistic) hobbyist. Initial recommendation is finding a buyer and donating some of the proceeds back to Scrap.
- August 19, 2017 10am to 4pm.
- Other times TBD
- Finishing and moved or ready to move after the August 25, 26 RAD Lab open house.
