thats a pretty vague area, but a simple vague answer may help you. in a nutshell, save the parts of things that may be used for something else later. For example, In a VCR, what parts do you know the most about? If you think they may be useful later, save them. throw the rest away or (if its still good) post it here for someone else to take.

Are there any places that give away old/broken equipment?

That depends on what your looking for. You might be able to find stuff here, or on other websites similar. i berlong to a few, so as requests are made, i will be keeping my eye out and playing matchmaker where possible. junkyards, scrapyards, recycling centers are all great places to find junk. sometimes electronic stores like Radio shack or best buy have broken parts and units in the back room, so the next time you go, ask for the manager and inquire. if they don't give them to you for free, the will certainly part with them for a small(er) fee.

So can we post wanted ads? And do you want a forum topic for each item, or a comment here, or Instructables about something? This seems like a good idea, I hope it doesn't get spammed to death. Also, should we post payment type if something is available for shipping, e.g. PayPal?

if you are offering, you can post your prefered payment type, but realize, not everybody has pay pal, so be open to other payment methods. (maybe a personal check, travelers cheque, money order, etc.) try no to get too caught up with details on forum. pm each other to discuss the situation amongst yourselves. there are other gropus for discussion, some of which i will be creating in the next couple weeks. Also, if you have a picture of the items offered, post them,

nope, just whatever you have or want. if you've got some books or disk drives laying around, post it. It's a really good way to get rid of the clutter you don't want anymore.
