All of the things needed to have an electronics lab on the road.

People working on electronics know the pain of moving outside their home lab and having the tools necessary to troubleshoot projects. The Portalab is targeted towards creating a portable, modular and rugged lab environment that can be taken on the road and used to repair or create electronics.

    This was a video sent to me as inspiration for the portalab. It's meant for mechanical tools, obviously, but I thought it was a fantastic use of space and showed extreme versatilities of individual modular pieces...which fits the ethos of this project. Please excuse the terrible music, this is by far the best demo on YouTube:

Check out portable stations/cases for tying fly-fishing flies. Great inspiration for organization and craftsmanship.

I've always wanted to do something similar! I have a bunch of Instructables saved for inspiration, so I threw them together into a collection. 

Hope you get some ideas from it.

this kit looks like it could use a nice compact circuit board holder....

I actually hadn't heard of that. I would want something like that but definitely need more bandwidth. I need at least 20 MHz of bandwidth on a scope, prefer 50+.

Have you ever thought about doing something like nScope?
