Introduction: How to Get Free PCB From Old Computerhardware

About: I like to get back to the technical roots and try to make things without getting too complicated. Thanks for feedback https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCon08qxJhPLYbweaaLxEqsw https://www.facebook.com/pages/EZ-…

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.
