Electronic Experimenter's Manual

This reminds me of when I was a kid… a true "hobbyist manual". Includes discussions on tools, parts, and setting up a workshop. Also details on how to lay out and fabricate a chassis (even one from a foil-covered cigar box!), male simple PCB's, and wire circuits together. Also has sections on some tools and test equipment you can build yourself, as well as some simple projects. Great beginners book.
