If your answer is yes to both the questions above, then think about this for a minute.
If your a hobbyist like me, then surely there must be some parts on the blender that is still of some use. Perhaps you could make something with the switch provided that it still works or make an electromagnet with the copper wires hidden inside. Maybe you could even make the blender into an art piece. The possibilities are endless.
What will you do?
In this instructable, I will be showing you how you can scrap a blender and extract useful items from it that would have been discarded otherwise. I will be showing just one model in this instructable, so if your want to see the rest, you can click here to visit my website for the full article.
Step 1: Tools
- a flat nose pliers
- a cutting pliers
- a Phillips screwdriver
- a flat nose screwdriver
Step 2: Getting Started
This particular blender has a seized motor shaft and a broken bowl.
Of course, make sure the appliance is not plugged in.
Step 3: Open the case
I used the Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws.
Step 4: Remove the internals
The switch just comes out without any fasteners holding it in place.
Step 5: Remove the motor
First I tired prying it off with a flat head screwdriver then with the flat nose pliers, but it proved to be a bit stubborn so I broke out the motor instead.
