Where can I find used and/or broken remote controls? Answered

I am looking for a source of used or broken remote controls. I don't want to pay more than $1.00 per remote. Free would be Great.

go to your local tip shop, better known as a scrap yard or dump store.
they scaveng through your garbage for things they can sell (recyling junk though).
at my local dump shop there are about 50 old broken (labeld broken only if they dont have a remote controller with them) petrol buggies and cars, and hi-power electric racers. basicaly you can get a whole bunch of stuff that wont work, that youll need to take parts from 1 to another, then they all work fine.

Try your local rubbish disposal site, they often have an area set aside for discarded TV's. I've seen lots of remote's their.
