    Harvesting Electronic Components

    I see a Blowtorch being used...Blowtorch equals heated/melted plastic, equals FUMES!!!

    Old Boards will not likely be ROHLs compliant...and you often cannot tell where boards are from, or what chemicals are used to coat/glue/paint/bind etc on boards. Even new boards from Asia, and other places are DEFINITELY NOT ROHLs compliant!!!I never said not to do it...Im just suggesting that when you do it, do it using ventilation.There are reasons why solder de-fuming/vent hood devices exist, and it not just for fun, or to fluff your hair up..

    I dont think many ROHLs compliant, brand spanking new boards are going to be used to desolder components. Most boards come from old equipment, long before ROHLs was a twinkle in its Daddys eye.

    see, this is what this place needs, more FUN, projects. This idea is BRILLIANT!.For those of us that are not Adafruit literate, there are plenty of solid state audio recorders out there that have speakers, some with built-in PIR sensors.

    Use a cheapo photoelectric sensor for the case, that way you wont have to deal with the Radioactive chamber, that would need special disposal

    Whoops, I truly apologise, I put in SIR into my comment, and even while I was typing, I was thinking, "I really should check if this is a woman, FIRST".Well...as per usual, I made that mistake, and I am truly sorry that I made it.

    Absolutely beautiful project. Its well thought out, and perfectly executed. My only problem is that very few readers have access to a laser engraving cad device to make the numbers for this..this aggravates me to no end.

    How to spread kindness

    WOW, what a wonderful idea. BRILLIANT!We need more people with ideas like this, the world would be just a little bit happier.Negative comments about this are exactly why its a good idea.You don't need to actually take a slip, if you read the body of the post.As far as posting, its illegal almost everywhere, but I would guess that if you were nicked putting up something like this, nobody would give you a hard time.

    I guess that if you cannot find a reversible fan, you can have two fans, each blowing in opposite directions, controlled by a double throw switch, with the center position as "off".Man, I sure know how to complicate an otherwise simple, elegant project.

    Just so ya know. I was able to scrounge up a VERY high power, altho low ma. rated DC fan, and I built the project.I figure that this thing will be able to be used, in short bursts on the batteries, for many years.I did add a reverse switch, and it truly broke the seal of the bag between the bag and the can, to assist in the removal of the bag.I can only imagine Glad, or some other major manufacturer offering this system in the future!.As I said earlier, great useful project, that pretty much any skill-set can conquer.Kim

    Hell, I may even scrounge up a small Key-Fob remote module to turn it on, so I don't even have to bend over to activate.....now that's one lazy Canadian!!Kim

    Man... I am sorry that we are all so horribly sensitive that I cannot suggest a word correction. I didnt state that i was perfect, and I did state that it was a great project as well. I will watch my apostrophes.

    Im not the vocabulary police, but a good looking young man with a tie should not be using the word "costed"...try cost.This makes you sound illiterate, when you obviously are not.Good project, Ill be using a smaller fan with a battery supply

    Thank you, I happen to have a stash of those...so what the hell...Ill use em...even if they sing. I had one of the original kits...its gone now, but I going to rebuild, using your instructions. WELL DONE ARTICLE, a very fun, easy project...and great instructions. I have to say we need more articles like this...that dont need a $400.00 3D printer.

    Do you happen to know the original specs for the audio output transformer?. Was it 1k to 8 ohm???

    Coloured boards are definitely a market thing. I was in Ireland a few years ago, and the assortment of colors for boards was mind-boggling. I brought back as many different colours as I could afford. Alas, they were lost in a mad-cap separation with my wife. I have many older project mags, and every board was some bright color that they always used in their projects.
