microwave "anagram" Answered

I have that maker-ish compulsion to disassemble any and every broken or otherwise defunct appliance, gadget or device. For example, my microwave just "went to sing with the choir invisible", so I have begun turning it into a pile of parts. I got to thinking- as many of you must have doe before- "what can I do with this stuff?". Just like anagramists take words and shuffle their parts (i.e., letters) around to make something(s) new, different and/or clever, I'd like to try to do the same thing with my old appliance. But more generally, I wish there were a database of appliance "anagrams"- a list of clever projects classified according to the appliance from which the parts come. Anyway- if anyone has an idea what could be done with an old microwave (I've got my eye on that big capacitor...), please hold forth!

Nice idea. 1. Create the database 2. Establish a following. 3. ???? 4. Become the next Eric Wilhelm.
