I'm looking for a series from around the same era as the Hardy Boys (I'm guessing 1940s to 1960s), its about a teenage boy who is a science genius, and has access to a lab where he invents and builds all sorts of fabulous futuristic machines. If I remember right, there were quite a few books in the series, but I was only able to get my hands on one or two of them. Any ideas?

    And before the Tom Swift Jr series (33 books), there was the Tom Swift Series (about 100 books published starting in 1910) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Swift
