Stripping parts from household devices
Hi I want to build a lot of the things on this site but right now I cant just go and order the parts online as where I live I either get ripped of on the price of the components or on the delivery costs the last time I ordered parts they came to just under a tenner but it still cost me nearly 50 quid to get them in my hand so I'm looking for some advice on what kind of devices I can get different parts from the ideal thing would be a site that has a vast list of devices and what kind of components would be inside but I think such a site is very unlikely so hopefully somebody here can help me with the ones I'm looking for now I want some servos and micro switches.
I have striped two microwaves for the micro switches but they didn't have the kind I was looking for the activater (sorry can't spell) was a push button rather than the lever and striped a few things for the servos that I figured would have them but they were just normal motors with cogs set up to act as the gears what I'm looking for an actual servo. I have no RC cars left as they all had the set up I just said so any thing else that you can think of that would have them in a normal house with a crap load of kids toys
Thanks in advance
