These are a few hundred Surface mount resistors and some capacitors and whatnot, all harvested by hand, very slowly, with the filament of an old lightbulb attached to a wooden handle, and thatforth to two car batteries via jumper cables, works fairly well if you ask me.

I was joking you fool. I actually did it an even harder way than that, I used a big heavy 230 watt dual temp soldering gun, really hard to handle and be delicate with, but it peeled them right off.

Actually I have tried that before, using the proper gauge of wire is important. Just look at the old arc lamps they used to use in the early 1900's. If you want bad enough, I will conjure up something for you.

most likely. OR maybe, I could make a necklace out of all the smd caps for my girlfriend, since they're easy to work with, and solder a whole string together. That's actually a neat idea.
