What "bench" reference information would be useful to you?

I keep several charts and diagrams near my workbench. They include resistor color codes, cap codes\conversions, a simple tranny substitute chart and over the years I've compiled a list of opamp substitutes for single, dual and quad opamps. Common wiring diagrams would be a good thing have; I've not assembled a folder of common wiring scenarios and always need to dig up an example. Another chart I find handy is an inches to mm\cm conversion chart - that stuff always messes me up.

For the tranny subs, I use this chart (that may prove beneficial):

And here is the opamp PIN-FOR-PIN Replacement List . . . .

LF353 - Slew = 13V/µs
LM358 - Slew = 0.3V/µs (@ unity)
LM1458 - Slew = 0.5V/µs
LM2903 - Diff. Comparator
LM4558 - Slew = 1.7V/µs
uPC4570 - Slew = 7V/µs
LM4560 - Slew = 5.5V/µs

Quad Op Amp Equivalents:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LM324 - Slew = 0.5V/µs
RCA4136 - Slew = 1.7V/µs
TL064 - Slew = 13V/µs

TL084 - Slew = 13V/µs
OPA1644 - Slew = ~20V/µs
OPA4134 - Slew = ~20V/µs

When deciding to use an alternate opamp, I always reference the specific opamp's datasheet. The list above is just a quick reference.

Thanks for this.

Color Codes for resistor might be handy, though I prefer to just measure them if I am not sure what it is.

What I look up EVERY SINGLE TIME is the pin-layout for pots. I just cannot remember that darn thing.

Common voltages for ICs would be super cool.
