Oscilloscopes are commonly found on electronics workbenches. Instead of buying one, I built my own. They are used to view how voltage changes across time.
This project was definitely not a beginner project. I fought a header that I solder on wrong for over an hour until I realized, it wasn’t used in running the oscilloscope. So I left it in a tilted state.
As the project was completed over two nights, there is a second Twitter thread for the thrilling conclusion.
I did end up melting component housing, burning my thumb, and warping the board before everything was complete. But in good news, it was my first soldering injury.

What can I say? I'm talented. pic.twitter.com/Tf6w0I5c94
