Scrapping electronics, What should I look for???
When I was like 10, I would take apart all of my electronics that were broken, or not broken. Then I would play around with the parts with great curiosity. I once rigged alarm to my bedroom door, by fixing a string from in front of the door. When Someone broke it, the string would loosen a weight that would connect a wire to a motor, which would set off an old fashion alarm clock. It was tough to make, and as you know i would have to re string everytime someone came in my room.
Recently while in a forum, someone mentioned Robomaniac`s tutorial of the beatle-bot. And this tutorial resparked an old intrest lying deep within..
Well my question is: Whenever I am taking an electronic object apart. What should I keep?? And what should I ditch??
