How to Get Free PCB From Old Computerhardware





Introduction: How to Get Free PCB From Old Computerhardware

Today I was in need of a PCB, but couldnt find any more. So I decided to get one for free of my old computer hardware and searched the old rubbish.

Step 1: Search for a Usable PCB and Desolder

After I found a good one and I desoldered all unwanted parts. But I left the socket so i can hook up the whole thing easily.

Step 2: Finish

Now you can look at brand new desoldered PCB thats ready for use.

    I do the same thing you

    So, why do you waste time and comment it????

    To recycle a pcb is not waste of time - its reycling of waste!

    That's wierd, you desolder everything to have the pcb. but to do what ? every pcb have only one application right ?

    It doesnt matter what application it was made for. I will make another sensor circuit with it. Watch & learn ;)

    Nice harvest, would love to see what you plan to do with it. Thanks for sharing!
