In the last 6 months, I had a 40" hd tv, a modem, a 27" monitor and a laptop all quit on me for various reasons. I'm wondering if I take them apart if there are any parts that are worth salvaging. I have only a basic understanding of electronics but love to tinker and want to take up arduino projects. What would you salvage if it were you? MK

My sister brought me home this part tonight from tech crew at school, she says she thinks it came from a fire alarm but were not sure. There are 2 lightbulb sockets and engraved on the metal it says "75W -125 v". Out of the back there are 6 wires, 1 red 1 black 2 white that are going into the large thing in the middle, and 1 black and 1 white coming out of the empty socket. the 2 sockets are also wired together. What is this part? is it simply a power supply with 2 light bulbs? The label says "Lithonia emergency systems on it" "input : 277 at 60hz (wht and black) output:120v 21.6VA (wht and red).

I have been to many sites, just trying to find one that carries, well, everything! I'll go to one, and it'll have a whole bunch of led's, but no resistors, or a whole bunch of switches but no led's. I end up spending a fortune on shipping by ordering parts for a project from 5 different sites. I would like to find a site that has all these things in one place. leds switches resistors capacitors transistors most other basic electronic stuff. Share your site!

I'm curious about where instructables members purchase their electroincs parts. I've played around with electronics since high school, but I've always been in an environment where parts are "free" (aka paid for by others). Now that I'm branching out on my own, I'd like to know the best place to buy parts. I did a quick comparison of Jameco and Mouser on my blog. http://www.thelumberlab.com/2011/catalog-fight-jameco-vs-mouser I'd greatly appreciate it if you all could share your thoughts on this. Thanks so much.

OK I dissembled a WWII radar for its gold, silver and parts. I got these Bradley Labs #SE6M82H parts they are 4 inches long and ½ inch in diameter, I may just melt for the silver but before I do I would like to make sure what they are first. I think they are 25,000 to 50,000 volt rectifiers but I can’t get a datasheet or any other information on them. So can anyone help me with information on this part? Joe

I've seen some forum topics here that explain how to create your own plastic molds etc. I'm looking for some help here. I need to make some small plastic gears, but I'm not sure that investing the time and effort into learning injection molding, simply to produce a hand full of parts, is sound logic. Is there anyone out there that makes small plastic parts for a living? I've contacted several companies in my area, but they won't do anything less than 10K quantity... Thanks, Tim

I won third place in the dyeing for color contest a few weeks ago. I filled out all of the paperwork instructables sent me and received 'most' of the prize. However when the box came, it was missing the 12 white cotton bandanas. I have messaged the contest manager, and service@instructables, but neither has returned my messages.

Hi Guys Can anyone please help me. I have recently purchased a few parts for a jet engine off ebay as a possible project but can't find what engine they may have came off. The combustion chamber is different to what you see in smaller rc jet engine. The turbine wheel blades are dove tailed like on bigger jets and the compressor wheel has an inducer of around 95mm. I would imagine if this could ever run again it would produce a serious amount of thrust. I have uploaded some photos and would be grateful of any help.

I am making an instructable for building a gas powered bicycle from scratch, but in it's current form, it is shaping up to have literally hundreds of steps. Is there a way to break it down into smaller sections in such a way that I could still enter it in a contest as one instructable? I was thinking perhaps I make an instructable that consists of only the introduction, followed by quick overviews of each part, with accompanying links to other instructables which are dedicated to each part. The way I am planning to do it, I would have one instructable for how to modify the engine, another one for choosing a good bicycle to motorize, another for mounting the engine to the bike frame, another for calculating gear ratios and setting up gear reduction, another for rebuilding the rear wheel, another for throttle linkage, another for exhaust systems, gas tanks, and air filters, another for all the other misc stuff you have to do, and finally one more for how to ride safely. So that would be 9 parts to the instructable, each their own instructable, which even split into 8 would make quite large instructables. Then the "parent" instructable, which would be the one I enter in contests, or which would be featured if it's worthy, would look like this: How to build a 4hp motorized bicycle from scratch! Blah blah blah introduction, nice pictures of finished bicycles, etc. Step 1 short overview of specific part, ex modifying the engine, then link to another instructable providing detailed instructions on exactly how to modify the engine Step 2 same format as step 1 and so on until all the parts are covered. This would also be helpful to me because I could better organize the hundreds of images I have for this instructable, right now it is a huge pain in the butt to find any specific image, so much so that it's easier to upload them one by one as I need them just so I can keep track. So, would this format be ok?

I am working on a project involving a Presario V5000 laptop (well mainly its innards) and would love to find extension cables for some of the components. For example, the keyboard attaches to the motherboard via a 24 pin flat ribbon-like cable (see example image). It would be great if I could get a simple extension piece (male to female) to give me any additional length, but I cant seem to find anyone that makes this, or what the techincal name is for that type of cable. (is it even a cable? Is it a flexible circuitboard?) Anyone aware of a good vendor for hard to find laptop accessories like this??

I have a unibody macbook which I have recently broken and would be grateful for your help/advice. I dropped my macbook on the floor. As a result a piece of metal (I think it is aluminium but this is a guess) snapped off the screen (internally). This piece of metal was the piece that the hinge screwed into, connecting the screen and the keyboard and allowed the laptop to close. I have attempted to glue this piece back on with various strong adhesives but these have not been strong enough due to it being hinge. I am writing to ask if you think that a form of welding may be a possible solution. The piece is 1.75cm in length and about 3mm across. As you can see from the photos there are three holes which will hold the screws securing the hinge to the computer's base. The piece is attached to the laptop's screen. I have attached two professional photos which I hope show how the piece fits into the overall mechanism. Your input would be most appreciated.

Hi, Unfortunately our washing machine stopped working the other day… It’s a seven years old Upo TL1200D for those who cares. It’s quite small and old, so my wife and I have decided to buy a new one. My question is, are there any valuable/notable parts I should disassemble for future DIY projects, before we throw it out? I know I could always open it up my self and have a look (plan b). Since our apartment is a bit space constrained, the idea of having lots of parts laying around is not so popular… :) I have overlooked good quality parts in the past when I have throwned stuff away, and I thought maybe someone in here have any ideas of what to toss and what to keep?
