If you got a couple minutes, go to:

The Workbench Diary is a pretty nice blog in its own right, but the YouTube Video posted there is definitely worth a look. If you have the least bit of geek in you you will really like seeing the museum’s technology. Even if you don’t, just seeing this piece from 1580 is worth a look.

Now that’s cool. I wonder how many guys it took to build that cabinet.

That is an interesting video. Like Brian, I, too wonder about the construction of the cabinet but also wonder how much it cost to do all that analysis. I don’t think Harbor Freight has discount coupons for their scanning electron microscopes. Matter of fact, I’ve never even seen them list a gas chromatograph or mass spectrometer.LOL
