I have been notified that my parts and service area will be shrunk and no air conditioning will be installed in the new building we are moving to in a year and a half. I need some information as to the condition of my parts when exposed to the heat, humidity, cold, etc. Can you let me know because if there's a problem, I have several hundred thousand dollars in parts that are at risk! Thank-you!

Like its stated i need to know what are the basic, most important electronics parts to have in a toolbox for any project. i want to start learning about electronics and i need parts to do projects and i didnt know you ya'll keep basic parts that everyone else have like a common type of LED or something. know what i mean? if nobody knows or doesnt do this, what are some parts to look for that a beginner like me could use later for starting small projects that will help me learn electronics?

I need help in finding a replacement part for a swing arm magnifying lamp. I have search far and wide online but could not find any. I have also tried the company that I had purchase from (2 Years ago) they do not carry replacement parts. The lamp is a Alvin lamp desk clamp, the lamp is in excellent and working condition. The only problem is the swevil part that connects the lamp head to the the swing arm. ( see pics) Any alternative idea or sudsititude would be helpful. Thanks

For instance as much of a pack rack as i am, i am getting ready to toss a couple of older cordless phones, an infrared foot massager, tossed an old all in one printer a couple weeks back. if there are good, all purpose usable parts i would salvage and save the parts. the foot massager must have a motor or vibrater. The cordless phones i saved the 9vdc bricks, i use i lot of stuff that runs off 9vdc.

Hi, Unfortunately our washing machine stopped working the other day… It’s a seven years old Upo TL1200D for those who cares. It’s quite small and old, so my wife and I have decided to buy a new one. My question is, are there any valuable/notable parts I should disassemble for future DIY projects, before we throw it out? I know I could always open it up my self and have a look (plan b). Since our apartment is a bit space constrained, the idea of having lots of parts laying around is not so popular… :) I have overlooked good quality parts in the past when I have throwned stuff away, and I thought maybe someone in here have any ideas of what to toss and what to keep?

I got a new knex set today. I got the double-sawblade ride. Now I get a whole **** load of blue rods, yellow rods, gray rods, and especially red rods (I only had 6 red rods before I got this set.)And I get much more yellow, white, blue, green, and gray connectors too. I think I may be able to build the sear rifle I have been hyping up in the chatroom for some time now. but This isnt really an end to my part limitations. I did not get a whole lot of short green rods, and the connectors only took one bag. Now my 550 tub is overflowing with the knex parts I have.Double sawblade is a good part booster.

There is an extension cord (3 wire) which has a flat wall connector - great for tight spaces. I've bought some over the years (about $12 each at Amazon) - but want a supply of the plugs so I can make my own custom/length cords. I looked at a few electric parts places but no luck. Any ideas/sources for a less expensive flat plug adapter? One option is to replacc the wall outlet with a recessed outlet - but that does not work for me. thanks

Where can i get some free electronics without telling the company what i need the samples for?
Asked by jibatsu 8 years ago
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??

Hey all, I'm looking for milky/fogged/hazy (I'm not sure what the right term) twist open plastic balls, like the one on the first picture. My plan is to put some LEDs in them to make glowing balls, but all I can find is clear plastic, as in the second picture. Any suggestion where can I get something like this? The size should be about 2" (diameter). -Greg

Hey there instructables fans. I've been reviewing your site for a while now, loving all the cool projects. I saw one project that was using some disused IDE connectors from a PC and it got me thinking.... part of my day job is running a WEEE recycling company in the South West of the UK. We process an awful lot of computers and although we re-use as much as we can of the computer stuff we recycle there is still a lot that goes to be shredded for material recovery. I'm always looking for new ways in which bits and pieces could get themselves a second life. Would this community be interested in any old computers bits and pieces? I'm not asking for money just enough to cover postage, perhaps some brave soul in the UK would like to take on a 'bulk order' and then distribute around? It's just a thought and my apologies if I've stepped on any toes or forum rules, I have no interest in making money from this just simply to get make a few small bits and pieces useful once again :) Please message back if interested!

I am building an automated parts storage thingy. I envision having a catalog of parts with numbers next to them. I enter a number on a keypad that corresponds to the part, and the drawer containing the part slides out* and the smaller compartment containing the part's lid flips open** and I enter the amount I took or put in and it logs it*** and notifies me when I am low on a part**** *How would I make it slide out? **How would I do this? Electromagnets, maybe? ***How would it remember? Compact flash or SD memory? ****How would it notify me? Network to the printer? I think i would press a button that said "STOCK" and it would tell me what to stock up on.

Hey, I'm new here. I'm an established musician (composing is my focus). I've gradually decided I'd like to work on a new composition project which involves electro-mechanical instruments of my own design. I have a decent understanding of electronics, and I don't think the mechanical designs will cause me too many problems. I've had plenty of experience in building hobby stuff - remote controlled planes, etc. What I don't know much about is where to source mechanical parts. Electronics, no probs. But things like wee little cranks and levers, hinges, etc, etc... stuff I'd rather not build from scratch but you can't exactly find in a hardware store. Any ideas? (I know this is off the wall). Many thanks! - Tom

The "Vacuum Tube" group needs a first forum topic. Here it is... Sorry 'bout the pun... but I could have used Time to get Organized... Be thankful ;-)Vacuum tubes and parts tend to be rather expensive these days. But there's a good source for parts, and it's often free: old tube organs.I picked up a working 1960 Wurlitzer a couple days ago. It's got:-- full complement of tubes (the mother lode!), including9 (nine!) 12AX7 preamp tubes.2 6L6-GC power tubes1 5U4-GB rectifier(there were other tubes: (28!) 12fq8's but they're not so useful for audio...)-- Huge power transformer-- Large (20-25 watt) output tranformer-- two 16 ohm speakers-- lots of carbon-comp resistors, sockets and other reusables.Total cost--just gas, and a sore back.Even the non-tube organs are a good source of speakers, reverb tanks, pedals, etc. The tank, bass pedals and the volume pedal were from a solid-state Conn organ left on the curb...The bass pedals could be made into a MIDI project, and the volume pedal would be a nice start of a wah, or left as-is. Yeah, they are grungy, but that's easy to fix....

I want to either make a touchscreen or install one (though I don't know where I would source the parts for that). Basically I don't want the touchscreen to pick up on my hand. I have a Wacom Bamboo tablet which requires a stylus and that's essentially what I want here. That would most likely be an inductive touchscreen, so I'd be interested in making something like that. Preferably mostly see-through if possible. Basically: How would I make that (or where would I buy a raw element for something like that), and how difficult would it be to interface with that (i.e. via microcontroller). Thanks.

I have recently disassembled a microwave to discover that practically all the internal electronic components are still functional (all except the chassis and bezel - even the lightbulbs were still intact). That includes the magnetron, transformer, HV capacitor, and high-power diode needed to turn 120VAC into a microwave beam. So, what sort of interesting, things can one even do with a magnetron, anyway, while being at least reasonably safe. I'm no wimp, but getting widespread internal 2nd degree burns is no picnic either. Any ideas for things I can do with those parts?
