Harvey,

Thanks for your thoughts. Right now I definitely don't have the floor space for a scope cart, but I'm planning a move in the near future and am looking at houses. One criteria is enough floor space for a couple of benches and rolling carts (already have a small rolling metal cart I got at the container store which I keep my small tools on, such as screwdrivers, pliers, flux bottle, etc on.
Ah, now, based on my lab:

1) PC board fabrication, about 5 feet by 2 feet.
2) DC calibration (one rack and desk space)
3) RF work, maybe the same
4) Digital (main focus), about 4 feet worth of space)
5) Scope calibration (2 feet, often borrowed)
6) miscellaneous (borrowed, you decide)
7) PC board assembly and desoldering (4 feet)
8) plugin stack and tool chests (4 feet)
9) place to sit (3 feet) (!)

10) door (needed one of them somehow)
11) window (etc...)

You're getting the idea....

Labs automatically expand to 2x the available space.....

Point is, they had a lot of floor space.

Your lab may not.

Mine doesn't, so my scope cart is sitting elsewhere waiting for a
larger lab.... (one day).
